The Winnebago County Health Department reported 69 new cases of COVID-19 in the area.
This brings the total number of cases to 2,062. The number of recoveries is now at 640. But Director Sandra Martell said it wasn’t all good news.
“Unfortunately and sadly, we are reporting four additional deaths, three of which are associated with a congregate setting. That brings our total deaths to 58.”
Officials also announced the establishment of the Clean Hands, Open Doors program where local businesses would ensure certain health standards, such as enforcing face coverings and cleaning surfaces in order to build consumer confidence.
