The Illinois Dept. of Public Health (IDPH) is now publishing weekly numbers of new cases among Illinoisans less than 20 years old in each county to assist local schools and health departments in making decisions about in-person learning. The numbers on the IDPH website, “Metrics for School Determination of Community Spread,” include the test positivity rate, new cases, youth case increase, and new cases per hundred thousand people.
