6:15 p.m .: Some Latin neighborhoods delay participation in the census during a pandemic
A video posted on Facebook shows a little boy recovering a letter marked “Census 2020”.
“Make a difference in your community,” said the video to viewers in Spanish as Cesar Nuñez explains to a little boy and girl that the US Census Bureau wants them to complete the census.
Nuñez, the organization’s director at Enlace Chicago, made the video in his home after the organization scrapped doors and a Loteria-themed census night in Little Village because of COVID-19. On Census Day, April 1, the group planned another type of awareness campaign, joining a caravan that crosses the Latin Quarter, hoping that residents will see census messages.
In Illinois, nearly 40% of households had completed the census, a rate higher than the national response of 36.2%, according to the Census Bureau. In Chicago, the response rate on Tuesday was 29.5%, which is slightly higher than in Los Angeles and about the same as in Houston.
But households in some Latin neighborhoods in the city, like Little Village, aren’t participating as quickly as other parts of Chicago, according to a census data card compiled by the City University of New York. Organizers and experts say these communities may be late both because of a digital divide and because of a misconception that the census will ask who is a citizen. Read more here. —Elvia Malagón

Despite a cooler and rainier springtime these past few days, Chicago police and elected officials are still engaged in a high-stakes hustle and bustle with residents gathering outside in city neighborhoods.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot has gone from being scolded at taunting and closing the lakeshore last week in an attempt to slow the spread of the coronavirus, to a tone of cautious congratulations over the past few days to residents who she says overwhelmingly comply with the rules of “staying inside” the state.

Lightfoot urged people on Wednesday not to give in to the local compulsion to head outside as soon as it reaches 50 degrees.

4:47 p.m .: Everyone knows that hand sanitizer and toilet paper are essential parts of quarantine. So, apparently, these are puzzles, bread machines and paint.
Kari DeHaven has been cooking since she was a child, learning from her grandmother.
But she never tried sourdough until a new homework routine and social media inspiration convinced her to try it. Since Friday, she has made two loaves of bread and some sourdough waffles.
“One great thing about baking is that it gives you a little bit of control. In the chaotic world we live in, it is soothing to work with my hands in the kitchen, ”said DeHaven, 26, a family resident of Sycamore. “Touching, tasting, using all of my senses helps me to anchor myself. “
She is not alone. So many people have turned on their ovens that consumers say that flour and yeast can be difficult to find.
Confronted with orders to hide at home to try to slow the spread of the new coronavirus, consumers have stocked up on canned beans and cleaning products. But stores and analysts said buyers have also salvaged items that aren’t obvious essentials, like electrical skills, household paint and puzzles.

In addition, by reducing the number of meal sites, we will also be able to reduce the number of directors and assistant directors who oversee the distribution of meals each day, which will give directors more time to support learning at distance. ” —Hannah Leone

Residents of Chicago Housing Authority buildings can wait to pay April rent until the state house order is lifted, officials said on Wednesday.

Lorsqu’un couple Skokie est décédé samedi à quelques heures du coronavirus, les décès ont illustré non seulement la nature tragique de la pandémie, mais aussi sa propagation inégale à travers les banlieues.
