This morning (2/8) the Illinois Department of Health reported another Covid-19 death in Washington County: a male in his 90’s. Shorty after, Washington County Health Department released an update in which the additional death has not been added.
With the amount of data they receive from all over the state, IDPH numbers are not always accurate. However, if IDPH’s numbers are accurate, this means that Washington County is at 26 deaths due to Covid-19.
The WCHD is reporting 0 active hospitalizations and 24 active cases with only 5 additional cases added between 2/6 and 2/8. These numbers are better than the slight increase we have seen in recent releases. The WCHD asks that everyone continues to practice safety precautions.
Information will be updated as it is made available to us.
