The Latest COVID-19 Case Counts in DuPage County
In DuPage County, there are now 69 confirmed cases of Coronavirus disease 2019, or COVID-19, including 46 cases at the long term care facility (in 33 residents and 13 staff).
There are currently no additional cases at the long-term care facility (LTCF) in Willowbrook.
DuPage County Health Department (DCHD) continues to discourage testing for individuals who are mildly or not sick at all except to get medical care.
DCHD want to remind you that nursing home, assisted living facilities, and other long-term care facilities have the most vulnerable at-risk populations due to their age and underlying conditions.
The number of cases in DuPage County can be found on the DCHD website,
https://www.dupagehealth.org/590/Coronavirus-Disease-2019-COVID-19-Inform as well as the most up-to-date information.
The number of COVID-19 cases being reported is rising, partly because of
the increase in testing by commercial and hospital laboratories. Because testing is becoming more available in these labs, IDPH will prioritize testing for our highest risk populations, such as
hospitalized patients with severe acute lower respiratory illness and those who live and work in nursing homes and other congregate facilities.
