COVID Metrics in Illinois: McHenry, Cook Counties Drop to ‘Medium' Community Levels

COVID Metrics in Illinois: McHenry, Cook Counties Drop to ‘Medium' Community Levels

Two of Illinois’ most populous counties have seen reductions in several key COVID metrics in recent weeks, with Cook and McHenry counties both dropping to a “medium” community level of the virus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In the Chicago area, Grundy County also dropped to the “medium” level according to the updated metrics. Kankakee County has continued its recent declines in COVID metrics, falling to a “low” community level of the virus.

The CDC uses several metrics to determine a county’s “community level” of COVID, including the rate of new cases and hospital admissions per 100,000 residents, as well as the percentage of hospital beds used by COVID patients.

McHenry County saw slight increases in hospital admissions and staffed bed usage, but saw a significant drop in the number of new cases per 100,000 residents, according to CDC data.

Cook County saw a similar drop in new cases, falling from 243.78 new cases per 100,000 residents to 192.3 in a single week.

There were a handful of counties that saw increases in their “community levels,” including Lake and Porter counties in northwest Indiana. LaSalle County in Illinois also made a similar move.

Here are the latest metrics from around the area:
