Chicago and suburban Cook County moved from a high COVID-19 community level to “medium” based on the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday, “reflecting a dropping number of new cases and lower hospitalization rates in the region for COVID related illness,” according to an announcement from the Chicago Department of Public Health. Cases are trending down, and average daily hospital admissions have fallen below 10 per 100,000 people.
