The Iroquois County Public Health Department is reporting congregate data regarding COVID-19. In an effort to clarify
this data, we would like to provide a brief explanation. A confirmed case is an individual residing in Iroquois County who
has a positive laboratory confirmation of COVID-19. The total confirmed case numbers we report includes all individuals
who have tested positive, regardless of their current status. This number will never decrease. Recovered cases are
individuals who tested positive and after a period of ten days, are afebrile (fever free without fever-reducing medication)
for at least 72 hours and respiratory symptoms have improved. These recovered cases are then released from isolation by
the health department.
This is a rapidly evolving situation and the Iroquois County Public Health Department will provide updated information
and guidance as it becomes available on our Iroquois County Public Health Department Facebook page and website at
