IDPH Reports 6 Kane County Schools on Active Outbreaks List

The Illinois Department of Public Health is presently reporting six outbreaks in Kane County schools. The outbreak report was last updated today (Tuesday, Oct. 26, 2021).

Outbreak information is reported once clusters of cases are confirmed to be linked by location and time (within 14 days). Some outbreaks are pending processing and evaluation and will be added as more complete information is available.

The outbreak information is reported by local health departments to the Illinois Department of Public Health through an outbreak reporting system.

Specific outbreaks included are those that have been identified by the local health department to have three or more COVID-19 cases who may have a shared exposure at a shared Youth Related location and are from different households.

These outbreaks do not include secondary cases that may occur in a household member who has not been at the same outbreak location.

All data is provisional and subject to updating as more information becomes available. Data are updated once a week, typically on Fridays.

The IDPH says this data includes entries elicited from cases opened within the previous 30 days from the date of the update.
