[ARCHIVED] Health Department Coronavirus Update - March 23, 2020

The Lake County Health Department is reporting 12 new cases of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Lake County since Sunday afternoon. This brings the total number of Lake County residents testing positive for the disease to 92 since the first Lake County case was identified on March 11, 2020.

People are urged to continue to follow Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s order to stay at home and practice social distancing. Social distancing is increasing the physical space between people to slow the spread of illness. Staying at least six feet away from others lessens your chance of spreading or catching COVID-19. Simple ways to practice social distancing include avoiding crowds, working from home, visiting loved ones by electronic means instead of in person, and cancelling scheduled gatherings, playdates, and meetings.
