Dashboards for Regional COVID-19 Resurgence Criteria

July 17, 2020

As part of the Governor’s COVID-19 Mitigation Plan announced earlier this week, the Illinois Dept. of Public Health (IDPH) is monitoring key indicators to identify early but significant increases of COVID-19 transmission in Illinois, potentially signifying resurgence. These indicators are calculated for eleven newly described Illinois regions.

IDPH will monitor if these indicators show an increase in COVID-19 disease burden with a simultaneous decrease in hospital capacity OR if there are three consecutive days averaging greater than or equal to 8% test positivity rate. These indicators can be used to determine whether additional community mitigation interventions are needed for a region to control the further spread of COVID-19.
