DuPage County Coronavirus Plan

At this morning’s DuPage County Board Meeting county staff gave an update on the novel coronavirus. Karen Ayala, the executive director of the DuPage County Health Department, said there are now 11 people in Illinois who have been diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus. Though there are no cases currently in DuPage County, Ayala does expect to see some in the future. However, the health department urges people not to panic, and asks residents to take precautions like washing your hands and staying home when you’re not feeling well. For the latest information you can go on the county’s or Illinois Department of Public Health’s website.
