Important Notes:

  • Data is updated weekly. The reporting date is noted above to help limit confusion.
  • Contact tracing occurs following each positive test result and any individual in close contact will be notified and instructed to self-quarantine for 14 days.
  • Quarantine is used to keep individuals who have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others. As of October 1st, 2020, the district will follow revised IDPH guidance stating that close contacts of COVID-19 positive cases will no longer need to quarantine for 14 days if a face covering was consistently and correctly worn by both people during the exposure. This guidance does not apply to people who are sick or who tested positive for COVID-19.
  • Isolation is used to separate individuals who are diagnosed positive with COVID-19 from others who are not infected. If a person is diagnosed positive with COVID-19, they are asked to self-isolate for a minimum of 10 days.
