Daily COVID case counts are starting to meet levels not seen since late winter.
The state reported 3790 cases on Wednesday, the highest daily total since January 29th. With the increase in case counts the state isn’t near the “Bridge” phase of reopening. Governor JB Pritzker says he remains hopeful of getting more of the economy open – but for now that’s not happening.
One Bridge phase metric has been met with 73% of all residents over 65 with at least one vaccine shot. State-wide 41% of everyone 16 and over has a vaccine shot.
