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.
