Kankakee, Joliet, Frankfort and Lincolnwood zips COVID-19 Hot Spots, says data

Will County climbs 700 total cases, Kankakee zip reports 42, as data gives valuable insights

Monday marked a historic change for how DHS numbers will now be reported in COVID-19 cases with Illinois announcing they will now allow access to COVID-19 cases via ZIP code results on the DHS website. 

While local health departments will still report, this allows a chance to dive into hot spots across Illinois, including specific zip code areas. Those zip code reports will only generate if they can report over 5 cases to protect a person’s anonymity.

Hot Spots in Illinois by Zip on Monday included:

Will County

Will County Health Department eclipsed 700 total cases today, reporting in tonight 703 cases of COVID-19, including 22 deaths.
