Vermilion County Covid 19 update 10/13/21

For total case counts, hospitalizations, deaths, general vaccination rates, transmission levels, and regional metrics, you can see that on our COVID19 page (should be updated by end of business day):   https://vchd.org/covid-19/


IDPH has fixed the problem on their Regional Metrics site.  You may still have to update any shortcuts or links you have saved for certain COVID19 pages as I continue to find more changes.

Vermilion County NEW Case Counts

Today’s Cases: We had 34 new cases and 62 were released.  Of the 34 new cases, 0 were vaccinated.  We currently have 13 people hospitalized.  Zero cases were breakthrough cases and zero reinfections.
