We held the first of three COVID-vaccination clinics today, and vaccinated 82 healthcare workers.  We will see about that many on each of the next two days.

The rest of today's report deals with an ongoing outbreak at the IDOC Prision in Danville.

As we reported on Dec. 26, there were 519 COVID-positive cases at that single facility between Nov. 14 and Dec. 23.  Over the next 12 days, an additional 228 residents have tested positive for COVID.

So, at this facility, there have been 746 positive cases reported between Nov. 14 and Jan. 4.  Of those, 481 have recovered, and 265 are active cases.

This does not include employees.  Over the same time period, 136 employees have tested positive for COVID.  Of those, 99 have recovered, and 37 are at home in isolation.

And so, just based on the updated count of COVID-positive residents at this congregate-living facility, we are at a total of 6,221 positive cases.  An additional 409 have recovered, giving us 613 active COVID-positive cases in the County.
