The Winnebago County Health Department reported 343 new cases of coronavirus from over the weekend on Monday.
Public Health Administrator Sandra Martell said this means there have now been more than 10,000 cases total.
“Our rolling 7-day positivity rate is 13.5%, well above the 6.5% that we need to get ourself out of mitigation.”
Seven residents also lost their lives to the disease since last week. Officials from local health care providers say they have seen many more people coming in for tests, and are working to increase patient capacity as cases mount.
