Whiteside and Region 1 Back in COVID Warning

Cory Law with Whiteside County Health Department joined us on air this morning with COVID numbers and vaccination information.

Whiteside County has recently seen an increase in cases of COVID-19 in Whiteside County and Region 1 with all of Region 1 and much of Northern Illinois being placed into “Warning” due to an increase in cases having fewer than 20% of the Region’s ICU Beds available. As of 4/20, only 15% of Region 1’s ICU beds are available.

In addition to masking and social distancing, testing is an important part of helping reduce transmission and lower cases.  WCHD offers Free, No Appointment Necessary, Rapid Testing on Fridays.
