PERSONAL INJURY CRASH ROSELAWN

PERSONAL INJURY CRASH ROSELAWN

 

On Monday, March 30th, 2020 at approximately 07:03am, Newton County Deputies were dispatched to a two vehicle crash with injuries at State Road 10 near County Road 200 E, in front of Ten Oaks mobile home park. This is one mile west of the intersection of SR 10 and SR 55.

 

Upon the Deputies arrival it was found that a passenger car with three occupants had exited Ten Oaks onto State Road 10 to travel westbound on State Road 10. A Ford F-550 service truck was traveling eastbound on State Road 10.

 

According to Deputy Wallace’s investigation, evidence on scene suggested that the passenger car exited Ten Oaks Park and failed to yield to the right of way of the Ford F-550.

 

Due to sun glare, the driver of the F-550 saw the passenger car pulling out in front of him at the last second and attempted to stop. The Ford F-550 was unable to stop in time and impacted the passenger cars driver’s side, causing both vehicles to spin off of the roadway.

 

The driver of the F-550 (27 year old Sheldon, IL man) did not request medical attention on scene.

 

Two occupants (16 year old male of DeMotte and 20 year old male of DeMotte) of the passenger vehicle were able to exit and were transported to nearby hospital for nonlife threatening injuries.

 

The driver of the passenger car (18 year old Wheatfield, IN man) was trapped inside of the vehicle and had to be extricated. Upon the driver being extricated, he was flown to a local hospital by Luthern Air helicopter with critical but non-life threatening injuries.

 

Names are being withheld at this time.  The crash is still under investigation.

First Positive Case of COVID-19 in Iroquois County Confirmed

First Positive Case of COVID-19 in Iroquois County Confirmed
The Iroquois County Public Health Department has confirmed the first positive case of novel coronavirus
disease (COVID-19) in an Iroquois County resident on March 26, 2020.
This individual was tested March 23rd by a medical provider. Laboratory confirmed results were received today.
The individual is a man in his 50’s located in Iroquois County. The individual is at home, doing well, and
cooperating with public health officials. He will remain in isolation per Illinois Department of Public Health
guidance. At this time we are not providing any additional details on the individual. Public health officials are
evaluating exposures and will notify those we determine to be at increased risk of exposure. The situation is
fluid. Guidance and recommendations regarding patients under investigation may evolve as more is learned.
It is important to remember that even though there has been a confirmed case, this is not cause for panic.
The Iroquois County Public Health Department is working closely with Illinois Department of Public Health
and numerous local organizations, including Iroquois County EMA, Iroquois Memorial Hospital, emergency
responders (EMS, law enforcement, fire departments, 911 dispatch), and several long-term care facilities. Each
morning these organizations are brought together virtually through the Iroquois County Emergency Operation
Center (EOC) to conduct briefings, communicate needs, and coordinate efforts. This cooperation ensures
Iroquois County’s joint preparedness for and response to COVID-19.
We strongly recommend to continue social distancing and other safety measures which include:
? Stay home as much as possible with adherence to the Governor’s Shelter at Home requirement.
? If gatherings are necessary, limit the number of people to 10 or less.
? Call to check on family, neighbors, and older adults instead of visiting.
? Check with your provider about telehealth options if you feel ill.
? Remember to continue using proper hand hygiene.
? Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when sneezing or coughing. Dispose of the tissue immediately.
If no tissue is available, sneeze or cough into your elbow.
? Do not shake hands. Instead, use another non-contact method to address others.
? Clean frequently touched surfaces often.

Most importantly stay home if you are sick! If you have a respiratory illness, stay home for 7 days after your
symptoms started and for 3 days after your fever has stopped without the use of fever reducing medications, and
your cough or sore throat symptoms have improved (whichever is longer). Avoid the emergency department

and keep healthcare access available for others with more severe illness.
We recommend consulting with your doctor if you have the following:
? Fever, cough, shortness of breath or other cold or flu-like symptoms and do not feel better after three to
four days. Use telephone, text, telemedicine or a patient portal to reach out rather than going to your
doctor in person if possible.
? You are an older adult or have chronic health conditions of concern (heart disease, diabetes, lung
disease) and are exhibiting mild symptoms.
Your provider will decide if you need medical care. You usually do not need to be tested unless you are
admitted to the hospital.
ICPHD would like to thank our local partners for their diligent efforts to prevent the spread of coronavirus
within our community. We appreciate the cooperation and sacrifice of local businesses and community
members at large in practicing social distancing. With no vaccine available, this is our best response to slow the
spread of COVID-19.

Balloons Over Vermilion announces cancellation

We certainly live in uncertain times…..truer words were never spoken.

The Covid-19 virus has changed our lives, our outlooks and our concerns for friends, families and businesses. We all strive to live under “shelter in place” orders, march off to work in “necessary” but still frightful situations, and attempt to maintain a calm and positive outlook on the future.  Still, difficult decisions must be made with the best interests of all in mind.

It is with heavy hearts, but mindful of the serious situation we all face, that we announce the cancellation of Balloons Over Vermilion 2020.  In making this difficult decision, our Board of Directors has considered many factors, among them the following:

1)      Since its inception, Balloons Over Vermilion has been a professionally organized, community-based family event.  It has been made possible by the dozens of generous sponsors who support the event every year.  Today, many of those sponsors are concerned with keeping their businesses open in a very trying time.  Whether open or closed, they are attempting to protect and pay their employees while continually wondering what the future holds for them, their employees and their livelihoods. Asking sponsors to support a community event at a time in which they find themselves struggling to support such significant human factors would certainly not be in the best interests of our community as a whole.

2)      The question of “when will this all be over” is yet to be answered.  Unfortunately, there are varying degrees of estimates and answers to this question from very educated and informed professionals, none of who are indicating it will end soon.

3)      Planning for Balloons Over Vermilion takes the time and effort of many devoted volunteers. Contracts are signed, equipment is ordered, and commitments are made well in advance of the opening of the gates.  Unfortunately, the date of July 10, 2020 continues to approach.  We are not able to, nor are we willing to, ask sponsors to make financial commitments under the current circumstances.  Contracts for services cannot be signed in good faith, volunteers cannot be solicited, and balloonists cannot be tied to an event that may not happen. If we knew the “all clear” date, we could estimate if it would allow enough time to complete all the tasks necessary to provide the quality event that the community has embraced. But no one knows the “all clear” date and it pushes closer to our event date with each passing day.

4)      Vermilion County has yet to experience its first case of the Covid-19 virus. We are fortunate in this regard, but also mindful that a mass gathering like Balloons Over Vermilion attracts visitors, participants and vendors from across the nation.  Protecting the health and welfare of all our residents and guests is a commitment we do not take lightly, and one which weighed heavily in our decision.

 

For these reasons, and as an abundance of caution, Balloons Over Vermilion 2020 has been cancelled.  Due to the schedule of national ballooning events, it is not possible to postpone the event to a later date this year. There simply are not any later dates available which meet the local calendar and weather scenarios.

 

The Board of Directors and the entire Steering Committee of Balloon Over Vermilion remain fully committed to the future success of this event and we look forward to seeing everyone enjoying the sites, the flights, the smiles and the excitement of Balloons Over Vermilion 2021 to begin July 9, 2021.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any of us listed below.

 

With deepest community pride,

CITY OF HOOPESTON TO IMPLEMENT STAGE I OF COVID-19 RESPONSE PLAN

Due to the recently announced cases of COVID-19 in Champaign County, it has been decided to implement Stage I of the City of Hoopeston COVID-19 response plan. This plan was created by myself, EMA Director Hardcastle, and Chief of Police DeWitt to combat the spread of this virus throughout our city.  The following steps will begin effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020: 

 

• I will be directing city department heads and employees to begin planning for contingency of operations and staffing needs throughout the crisis. 

• I encourage the community to stay home if you are feeling ill. Do not go to public spaces or gatherings.

• Citizens should be ready to implement personal preparedness to limit the spread of the virus (proper handwashing, hygiene, sanitation, etc.). 

• City Hall will be open to the public only by appointment. Please call the city offices at 217-283-5833 to arrange an appointment if necessary.  

o Alternate payment methods are pay by phone, pay online, or drop it in the drop box in front of City Hall. 

o The police department window will still be open for walk-in reports. 

• The regularly scheduled City Council meeting for Tuesday, March 17, 2020 will be open to the public. However, we ask that citizens observe social distancing in the Council Chambers. Those choosing to attend should wash their hands thoroughly or sanitize once inside the building. If a member of the public has any symptoms of illness, please stay home.

• I will be holding regular briefings with the police chief and EMA director to determine the extent of the spread of the virus and if other actions need to be taken, such as implementation of Stage II or III.
