KANE COUNTY LEVEL OF COMMUNITY COVID TRANSMISSION HAS REACHED “HIGH”​​​

According to the latest COVID-19 positivity rates from CDC (https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#county-view), 
Kane County has reached what the CDC is designating as “High” community transmission.​
All residents are suggested to wear masks during this period of high community transmission.

COVID-19 Cases​ Increase in Kane County​​:

We are experiencing an increase in cases of COVID-19 in our county at this time. We are encouraging Kane County residents to follow CDC COVID-19 guidelines for vaccinated and unvaccinated people:

  • CDC strongly recommends individuals wear facemasks to cover the nose and mouth regardless of vaccination status. All individuals should also continue to maintain 6 ft physical distancing and wash their hands often.
  • School Districts are required by Governor Pritzker to follow CDC guidance which includes requiring universal masking for students, staff and visitors at their schools.
  • Fully vaccinated people might choose to wear mask particularly if they are immunocompromised or at increased risk for severe disease from COVID-19, or if they have someone in their household who is immunocompromised, at increased risk of severe disease or not fully vaccinated.
  • Although only a small proportion of people who are fully vaccinated get infected with COVID-19 including Delta COVID-19 variant, fully vaccinated people who are infected with the Delta variant are able to transmit it to others.
  • People exposed to COVID-19 should get tested whether vaccinated or not.
  • Vaccination is still the best prevention measure for COVID-19. KCHD strongly recommends vaccination for everyone 12 years and older and it is offered free of charge at many locations in the County.
