"With approximately 700 cases reported to date-120 cases just in the last week-residents should assume that if they are out anywhere, a COVID-19 exposure is likely", said St. Lawrence County Public Health Director Dana McGuire. The Public Health Department will be continuing to contact trace every positive case in the county, however.

Also, within the past 24 hours, laboratories have reported 91,562 new tests for a total of 9,892,981.

As of late Friday, Illinois had 6,175 COVID-19 patients in the hospital, setting another state record.

Of those hospitalizations, 1,173 were in intensive care units, and 595 were on ventilators.

The preliminary 7-day statewide positivity for cases as a percent of total tests from November 16-22 is 10.9%.

The South Suburban region (Will and Kankakee counties) has seen five days of positivity increases and five days of hospital admission increases, a decrease in both metrics.

Under rules set by the Restore Illinois plan, if a region reaches or falls below the 20% threshold, the state may impose tighter restrictions to avoid the possibility of the region running out of hospital and ICU beds. The region's positivity rate decreased from 20.6% to 20.1%.

Finally, within the Will/Kankakee region, there are 30 available, staffed ICU beds out of 162 total.

The North region (Boone, Carroll, DeKalb, Jo Daviess, Lee, Ogle, Stephenson, Whiteside and Winnebago counties) has seen three days of positivity increases and five days of hospital admission increases, a decrease in both metrics. The region's positivity rate decreased from 19% to 18.2%. Currently, 26% of medical/surgical beds are available and 23% of ICU beds.

Within this region, DeKalb County's positivity rate decreased to 14.3%, Lee County's rate increased to 16.8%, and Whiteside County's rate dropped to 21.6%.

Finally, within this region, there are 48 available, staffed ICU beds out of 179 total. The region's positivity rate decreased from 16.1% to 15.1%. Currently, 28% of medical/surgical beds are available and 20% of ICU beds.

The North-Central region (Bureau, Fulton, Grundy, Henderson, Henry, Kendall, Knox, La Salle, Livingston, Marshall, McDonough, McLean, Mercer, Peoria, Putnam, Rock Island, Stark, Tazewell, Warren and Woodford counties) has seen four days of positivity increases and seven days of hospital admission increases, a decrease in both metrics.

Within this region, La Salle county's seven-day positivity rate increased to 19.6%. The region's positivity rate decreased to 14.3%. Currently, 20% of medical/surgical beds are available and 20% of ICU beds. The region's positivity rate increased slightly to 15.6%.
