FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  

DUPAGE COUNTY—Today, the DuPage County Health Department is announcing a new, interactive COVID-19 case map. The dashboard links data from the DuPage County Health Department into the GIS Data Systems from DuPage County to provide a greater level of understanding into how the coronavirus disease 2019, or COVID-19, pandemic is unfolding across our communities.

The information on the COVID-19 Dashboard will be updated daily to provide DuPage County residents information about the current spread of COVID-19 and need for healthy distancing and prevention steps to slow the spread of disease. Information around age range, sex as well as community of residence of the cases identified through testing will be included. Since testing resources are limited to the most severe cases and at-risk populations, this does not reflect total disease presence in our communities. As testing becomes more available, this information will become more reflective of the actual disease activity in the community.

In DuPage County, as we have seen around the world, COVID-19 is affecting people of all ages and the number of cases is expected to continue growing, which means it’s important that we all help prevent the spread of this virus.

Visit: https://www.dupagehealth.org/610/DuPage-County-COVID-19-Dashboard to view the DuPage County COVID-19 Dashboard.

To protect yourself, protect your family and our most vulnerable populations from COVID-19, please continue to follow these prevention steps:

Healthy distancing:

• Stay home, except to shop for necessities like groceries and medicine. 

• Keep a distance of six (6) feet between yourself and others.

• Call to check on family, neighbors, and older adults instead of visiting.

• Check with your healthcare provider if you are sick, and make sure to contact the provider before going onsite.


It is still important that everyone follows healthy advice to stop the spread of illness:

• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.

• Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue and throw the tissue in the trash.

• Stay home if you are sick.
