Vermilion County Covid 19 update 12/30/21

*** The CDC is recommending a shorter isolation or quarantine time for some people who test positive for COVID, or who were in close contact with a COVID-positive person.  We are awaiting direction from the Illinois Department of Public Health before making any changes to our isolation and quarantine procedures.  *** We are reporting 58 new cases (one resident in their 80s, six in their 70s, two in their 60s, seven in their 50s, seven in their 40s, seven in their 30s, eight in their 20s, twelve teens, five grade-school-aged children, one pre-schooler, one toddler, and one infant), and 31 released, which brings us to a total of 17,590 positive cases. We are saddened to report three additional COVID-related deaths – a woman in her 80s, a woman in her 70s, and a woman in his 60s.  Our sympathies go out to their families and friends.  We have lost a total of 238 Vermilion County residents to COVID-related deaths since this pandemic began. There are currently 307 active COVID cases in the county.  There are currently 25 Vermilion County residents hospitalized with COVID. We are aware of twenty-three Vermilion County residents who have become reinfected with COVID since June 1. Of the 58 cases being reported today, fifteen of them told us they have been fully vaccinated.  As part of the interview process, our contact tracers ask each person who tested positive whether they are fully vaccinated (two doses of Pfizer or Moderna, or one dose of Johnson & Johnson) against COVID-19. Vaccinations save lives. There are quite a few opportunities to receive your COVID-19 vaccine or booster.  Please bring your COVID vaccination cards and an ID.   *   Location:  Boys and Girls Club – hosted by Aetna Better Health of Illinois, 850 N.
