COVID Revised Slide

Our area (Region 9 - Lake and McHenry County) is under Phase 4 of Restore Illinois COVID-19 Mitigations as of February 3,  2021. While there have been improvements, COVID-19 is still being actively transmitted in our area. We need to continue to wear face coverings, practice social distancing, and working towards full vaccination of our community.

In order to mitigate the transmission of COVID-19 throughout Illinois, the State has created a five-phase Restore Illinois Plan as well as a three-tier Resurgence Mitigation Plan. Together, these frameworks are applied regionally and affect how businesses, education, and recreational activities can take place throughout Illinois. The severity of mitigations varies as our region sees better or worse rates of COVID-19 test positivity; hospital ICU bed availability; and COVID-19 related hospital admissions.
