Chicago Announcements April 13, 2022

The Chicago Department of Public Health wrote in its weekly COVID-19 update on Tuesday that while cases continue to climb, reaching an average of 414 new cases per day, hospitalizations remain at their lowest level since last summer. The city is seeing an average of 1.4 new COVID-related hospital admissions per 100,000 people per day, and fewer than 2 percent of the city’s intensive care beds are filled with COVID patients, putting the city firmly in the Center for Disease Control’s “low risk” category.  

The Chicago Department of Housing announced a new partnership with the University of Chicago Crown Family School for Social Work, Policy and Practice to research equitable housing policies. “This research will inform the department and others on what governments are doing to address and reverse decades of disinvestment and predatory housing practices that have prevented communities of color from building generational wealth through homeownership,” officials said.
