IDPH Response

There are ongoing investigations to learn more. This is a rapidly evolving situation and information will be updated as it becomes available.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reserved the right for each state to determine whether to release patient information regarding Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The McLean County Health Department is following the guidance set by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and will not be providing information about patients under investigation for coronavirus:

“Public health officials are working with medical providers to quickly identify individuals who may need further assessment and possible testing. We (IDPH) understand there is a lot of interest with this, but we are still learning about this novel virus and this is a very fluid situation where numbers will change and may not reflect the level of risk to the general public, which at this time remains low. If that changes or if there are additional confirmed cases, we will make sure to share information as soon as we have it.”
