117 New Cases, 1 Additional Death Friday; Test Positivity Rises to 4.2% as State Warns of Possible Resurgence

Kane County recorded 117 new COVID-19 cases and one additional death today, as the Illinois Department of Public Health outlined measures it is taking to quell a possible resurgence.

Kane County has now recorded 52,546 positive cases and 741 deaths since the pandemic began.

According to data posted on the IDPH website, Kane County’s seven-day test positivity rate grew to 4.2%. Rising case counts and test positivity rates are among the reasons Illinois is not advancing on the “Bridge” phase of the Restore Illinois Plan, according to a Friday IDPH news release.

Here’s a link to the State Reopening Metrics webpage.

Kane County is nearing the 200,000 mark in doses of vaccine administered. As of today, the total doses are at 192,477.

According to the IDPH, 68.49% of Kane County residents age 65 and older have had at least one shot of the COVID-19 vaccine. The state’s “Bridge” plan requires the state to be at 70% in the 65+ age category to advance in the reopening plan.

About 20.81% of Kane County’s population age 16 to 64 have had at least one shot of the vaccine. State health officials said today that any county that has low demand may now open vaccinations to anyone in the 16-to-64 age group.

According to the state’s COVID-19 Vaccine Allocations page, Kane County is due to get 8,900 first doses during the week of March 29 — which is less than the 10,200 it was allocated this week. However, a state of Illinois news release today said the federal government plans to deliver 1 million doses to the state of Illinois sometime next week.
