Several health regions in Illinois could be set to revert to level 3 coronavirus mitigation rules in the coming days, including suburban Will and Kankakee counties.

Following Governor JB Pritzker’s announcement that regions may be allowed to pass COVID-19 level 3 restrictions in the coming week, three health care regions are reaching the parameters to do so. Region 2, located in west-central Illinois and including Peoria, is one of these three regions, as is Region 3, which is located in western Illinois and includes Springfield.

Region 7, made up of Will and Kankakee counties, is also within current boundaries to move forward.

For a region to pass Level 3 restrictions, it must meet four key indicators. They must have a positivity rate of 12% or less for three consecutive days, an availability of inpatient and intensive care beds greater than 20% for three consecutive days, and they must report a decrease in hospitalizations for seven of the 10 days. previous ones.

Here is where things stand at the moment:

Region 1 (Northwestern Illinois):

This region is experiencing declines in positivity rates, falling to 10.1%, and hospitalizations, which are currently experiencing declines in six of the past 10 days. The availability of hospital beds can reach 25%, while the availability of ICU beds is still above the 20% threshold, but has fallen to 21.2%.

Region 2 (West Central Illinois):

The positivity rates have largely stabilized in this region at 9.2%. as well as the availability of hospital beds (23.9%) and ICU beds (24.8%). Hospitalizations have declined nine of the past 10 days, leaving this region within the threshold for passing Level 3 mitigation measures.

Region 3 (West Illinois):

The availability of hospital beds (22.7%) and ICU beds (22.4%) is on the rise, with hospital admissions decreasing in nine of the past 10 days. The region’s positivity rate is the lowest in the state, currently standing at 8.2%.

Region 4 (southwest Illinois):

This region has the highest positivity rate in the state, although it has fallen to 12.6% in recent days. The availability of hospital beds in the region is the lowest in the state at 11.6%, and the availability of ICU beds is 19.2%. Hospitalizations have increased each of the past three days in the region.

Region 5 (southern Illinois):

This region has seen a drop in positivity rates (9.6%) in recent days and has reported a drop in hospitalizations in five of the past 10 days. The region’s hospital bed availability remains the highest in the state at 33.7%, but the availability of ICU beds is still below the 20% threshold, currently at 17.5%.

Region 6 (East Central Illinois):

The region’s positivity rate has jumped to 9.9% in recent days, while hospitalizations have increased in seven of the past 10 days. The availability of hospital beds (18.5%) and the availability of intensive care beds (29.6%) remained largely stable.

Region 7 (Will, Kankakee counties):

This region has seen its positivity rate stabilize at 11.4% in recent days, as well as the availability of hospital beds (22%) and ICU beds (24.3%) stabilizing. Hospitalizations are still down, dropping in eight of the past ten days.

Region 8 (Kane counties, DuPage):

Hospitalizations have declined in nine of the past 10 days, while the availability of hospital beds (18.3%) is up. The availability of ICU beds (21.9%) has stabilized, as has the region’s positivity rate, which stands at 10.6%.

Region 9 (McHenry, Lake Counties):

This region is experiencing a mixed situation in terms of parameters, with the availability of hospital beds increasing (15.3%), while the availability of ICU beds has fallen to 22.6%. Hospitalizations have declined each of the past three days. The positivity rates in the region have remained stable at 10.4%.

Region 10 (Suburban Cook County):

The region’s positivity rate has stabilized at 10.2%, but the region is making gains in other areas. The availability of hospital beds (17.5%) and the availability of ICU beds (22.8%) have increased in recent days, and hospitalizations have fallen in each of the past 10 days.

Region 11 (Chicago):

Parameters in Chicago have remained broadly stable in recent days, the positivity rate (10.2%), availability of hospital beds (16.3%) and availability of intensive care beds (23.3%) have all remained largely the same in recent days. Hospitalizations have, however, decreased over the past 10 days.
