Local COVID-19 Update

DuPage and Will County have triggered a warning for one of the Illinois Department of Public Health metrics. DuPage County is currently at 64 new cases per 100,000 in a one-week period, and Will is at 71, with the target number being 50 or less. Last week DuPage County asked community members to use precautions that help limit the spread of COVID-19 and warned they will impose restrictions if needed if numbers continue to climb.
