[September 16, 2020]  The Illinois Department of Public Health is reporting a total of 115,833 cases of COVID-19 statewide and 5,186 deaths and the Logan County Department of Public Health (LCDPH) is urging the community to continue to play it safe during this time of pandemic.

To date, Logan County has experienced 10 cases of COVID-19 and much of the successful outcomes are a credit to the community as people have shared the role of emergency responders by wearing masks in public, avoiding gatherings and maintaining social distancing. LCDPH applauds these efforts but also urges taking continued precautions as the threat still lingers.

As Illinois begins phase three of the Restore Illinois plan, citizens will be asked to keep gatherings to 10 people or less and to wear a mask in public. Businesses will have a greater opportunity to provide services to the community as activities are gradually allowed to expand.
