COVID-19 numbers continue their decline in our area. The City of Naperville’s COVID-19 dashboard shows the number of active cases in the city has dropped to 740. That’s down more than 1,300 since the beginning of February. Local county positivity rates are falling as well according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with DuPage County at 3.65%, and Will County at 3.58%. That’s a drop of more than 2% for both counties in a week’s time. Naperville’s Edward Hospital is currently treating 14 inpatients with COVID-19. That’s 51 less than they had at the start of the month.
On Wednesday, the Naperville Public Library’s Community Engagement Series will feature local superintendents. Naperville School District 203 Superintendent Dan Bridges and Indian Prairie School District 204 Superintendent Dr. Adrian Talley will take part in a discussion about current projects and priorities. There will also be a question-and-answer session. The program is being held virtually to accommodate more guests. Sign up information is available on the library’s website.
