Whitley, Bell counties report new COVID-19 fatalities Thursday”

Once a region in Illinois has three consecutive days above 8%, the Illinois Department of Public Health will implement more measures to stop the spread of COVID-19, including closing indoor dining at bars and restaurants and limiting the capacity at gatherings.

If you get a call from the Lane County Public Health department, officials say 'please take it.' This comes out of concern as non-compliance in the COVID-19 contact tracing effort continues to grow.

Only Fulton County at 62.2 had a higher incidence rate in Kentucky than Knox County on Thursday.

According to county data, the city of DeKalb reports between 1,056 and 1,060 cases. In total, 15 long-term care or assisted-living facilities and two acute-care facilities have active outbreaks.

Of the 2,311 total COVID-19 cases, the health department has classified 1,838 as in recovery, or asymptomatic for at least 72 hours.

Knox County has had a total of 14 COVID-19 deaths.
