The measures included on this page are daily indicators of how Illinois and its regions and counties are being impacted by COVID-19. IDPH continues to monitor these indicators to identify early increases of virus transmission, and stress on hospital resources.
Data are provisional and are updated daily.
Daily Case Rate/100,000 Population
Percentage ICU Beds Available
COVID-19 Diagnosed Hospital Admissions
Weekly Deaths Reported
Case Rate 7 Day Rolling Average
ICU Availability 7 Day Rolling Average
Admissions 7 Day Rolling Average
Case Rate Per 100,000
For each county, a daily 7-day average case rate per 100,000 population is calculated by dividing the average of COVID-19 confirmed and probable cases reported to IDPH over the most recent 7 days by the population, and multiplying by 100,000. This value is rounded to one decimal place.
Calculation: 100,000*[Sum of confirmed and probable cases for most recent 7 days/7 days] /population
ICU Bed Availability
The seven-day average for the percentage of hospital ICU beds available is calculated by dividing the sum of the previous seven days’ ICU bed capacity into the sum of the previous seven days’ ICU bed availability and multiplying the resulting number by 100 to convert it to a percent.
Count of COVID-19 Diagnosed Hospital Admissions, 7-day average.
The seven-day average of daily number of hospital admissions given a diagnosis of COVID-19 is measured using the Illinois Syndromic Surveillance System. Illinois collects all ED and inpatient visits through syndromic surveillance from all acute care hospitals in IL in near-real time. Data is presented with a 3-day lag to allow time for diagnosis to be reported. At the county level a visit is counted by where the patient resides. A patient with multiple visits will be counted for each visit. Admissions may not be due to COVID-19 as the primary cause. Syndromic surveillance data is not the same source used by CDC to report COVID-19 hospital admissions data.

Weekly Reported Deaths
Each week, for each region and county, the weekly count of deaths is calculated by counting the number of deaths that occurred because of COVID-19 and that were reported to IDPH during the previous week.
Calculation: Count of deaths due to COVID-19 in a week.
