DuPage COVID Risk Level Increases

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have moved DuPage County’s COVID-19 community risk level up to medium. The change is a result of rising numbers, with CDC data currently showing the DuPage case rate per 100,000 people at 205.65. DuPage County as of Friday had 4.3 new COVID-19 admissions per 100,000 and 1.4% of staffed in-patient beds being used by those with confirmed cases of COVID-19. Under the medium risk category, those at high risk for severe illness are advised to ask their doctor about whether to wear a mask or take any extra precautions, according to the CDC. Only DuPage, McClean, Piatt and Champaign counties are listed at medium risk, with all other Illinois counties at low risk.
