McLean County Tops 600 COVID Cases; Active Cases Rise

The Douglas County Health Departement has reported 166 new cases along with an additional death.

The daily new cases for that county increased from an average of three per day in early July (July 11) to an average of 10 per day at the end of July (July 31).

Six months after California lost its first victim to COVID-19, the state has recorded more than 10,000 deaths - with almost half occurring in Los Angeles County.

As a public service, Shaw Media will provide open access to information related to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) emergency.

Public health officials continue to stress the importance of taking preventative action - wearing a facial covering, practicing physical distancing, washing hands regularly, and frequently disinfecting surfaces that are touched often - to help prevent and slow the spread of COVID-19.


Cases presumed active, meaning they were laboratory confirmed within the past two weeks, rose on Friday to 1,767.

Washington State's Department of Health is reporting 59,379 cases of COVID-19 have been discovered in the state over the course of the pandemic and that 1,619 people have died from the disease.

To date, there are 100 cases in residents younger than 20, 236 in their 20s, 155 in their 30s, 129 in their 40s, 119 in their 50s, 69 in their 60s, 56 in their 70s and 64 older than 80. This is the highest reported number of current hospitalizations yet.

In total, IDPH reported 190.508 people in IL have tested positive for COVID-19, while 7,613 people have died statewide. Travel in and out of the state also may be contributing to increased cases in the county.

Five patients at Lawrence's hospital had COVID-19 on Friday, two more than Thursday. In only 32 days, the county doubled its case count to Friday's 2,018. Updated cases and other data isn't expected until Monday, as the health department no longer releases data on the weekends. Testing and positivity rates were not available Friday afternoon.
