As Illinois gets set to enter Phase 5 of the Governor's reopening plan, local data is following state metrics.
DeWitt/Piatt Bi-County Health Department Director Dave Remmert indicates of the past several weeks, local case counts are declining, following the trends of the statewide metrics.
Remmert continues to be not only encouraged by the local vaccination data but also the statewide data indicating we could be close to having most of the population with immunity to this disease.
As things begin to slowly return to normal, Remmert notes a lot of the programs and services they offer in the two counties are beginning to return. We'll hear more from Remmert later this week on Regional Radio News regarding the things that are starting back up.
