IDPH to Focus on Case Rates, Hospitalizations When Tracking COVID-19

(IOCI RADIO) – The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) is adopting new federal guidelines for tracking COVID-19.

The change means that case and test positivity rates will no longer be posted to the online Covid dashboard, IDPH Acting Director Dr. Amaal Tokars said.

The dashboard, on the department’s website, will also now feature more information about vaccination rates and the vaccination status of those hospitalized with COVID-19.
