Vermilion County Covid 19 update 10/3/2020

Our REGIONAL positivity rate maintained at 7.2%.  Vermilion County’s latest weekly rate (ending in 9/29) is now at 8.3 (chart is below)  which is in the warning area.  This does not mean we go into extra restrictions; this means that next week, we will most likely be placed back on the warning list if we continue going up.  We only go into REGIONAL mitigations if we go over 8% for 3 consecutive days as a region. 


Update on Cases


Today’s Cases:  22 new cases and 13 were released.  This puts our active cases at 132 with 8 in the hospital and 124 at home in isolation. One of our current cases is now hospitalized.  We have 3 grade school children, 5 their 20s, 3 in their 30s, 2 in their 40s, 1 in their 50s, 6 in their 60s, 1 in their 70s and 1 in their 80s.  2 of the cases are connected by households or family.
