The Chicago Department of Public Health added Florida, Louisiana and Nevada to its Travel Advisory on Tuesday, meaning unvaccinated visitors from those states are required to quarantine or seek out COVID-19 tests upon arrival to Chicago. The states were upgraded because their rates of daily new cases exceeded 15 per 100,000 residents. They join Missouri and Arkansas, whose new case rates as of Tuesday were 33.8 and 27.4 out of 100,000, respectively.
The Cook County Department of Public Health will host three virtual “Ask the Doctor” question-and-answer sessions on COVID-19 and vaccinations during the next week, including two Spanish-language events. The Spanish language session will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday and 6 p.m. Thursday, and health officials will host an English-language session at 7 p.m. next Wednesday, July 28. The sessions will be broadcast on the Cook County Department of Public Health’s Facebook and YouTube pages.
