As Illinois reports 13,549 cases of COIVD-19 in the state, 90 percent are in 7 counties surrounding Chicago. Some in the rest of the state are wondering if the counties or areas with few cases need to social distance and “stay at home” for at least the rest of April. Governor JB Pritzker says that cases are spreading around Illinois and right now he’s not ready to bring a regional approach to his executive decision to stay at home.
Randolph County has the fourth most cases per 100,000 residents in the state. 25 counties so far don’t have a confirmed case of coronavirus.
