A Child in Kankakee County has tested positive for COVID-19.  This news comes hours after a teen tested positive for the disease in the County earlier this morning.

Kankakee County’s total now sits at 47 as of 3 pm this afternoon, with 25% of all cases in the County coming from Shapiro Developmental Center.

No further information was given on the Child case other than it is a male.  Due to HIPAA regulations, limited information has been given out by local health departments regarding cases testing positive.  If the Health Department finds a recent contact could have been made through a positive case, they will reach out to you directly during that investigation.

As a reminder to parents, Country Herald reminds you that all Park District Playground Equipment along with local park playgrounds should be avoided during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Please contact your local park officials for further questions.

In a tweet last week, BBCHS Athletics reminded residents all athletic facilities are closed, including Turf Stadium, Ball Fields and all practice fields.
