COVID-19 instances in Chicago may soon be classified as “medium risk.”

As COVID-19 cases steadily climb in Chicago, city health experts predict that the city will soon be at “medium risk” status.

When the city’s risk level rises to medium, the Chicago Department of Public Health will advise wearing masks indoors again, being current on immunizations and boosters, and having a plan in place for fast testing.Within the last two weeks, DuPage, Lake, and suburban Cook counties were upgraded to medium risk.

The problem is that an average of 709 Chicagoans are now testing positive for COVID-19 per day, up from 602 cases the previous week.
