With COVID-19 cases once again on the rise, the CDC has upgraded a number of Illinois counties’ community risk levels from low to medium.
Twenty-three of the state’s 102 counties were upgraded, with most located in the northern part of the state. Eight counties were located in central Illinois, while Johnson County was the lone southern county upgraded.
People living in medium risk counties are advised to stay up to date on vaccinations and get tested if they experience symptoms.
Marion County added five cases Tuesday; while Clay and Jefferson counties each added four.
