Active




A week that started with days of 16, 22 and 25 new cases ended with 43, 47 and 51 in Champaign County.

The reason for the uptick?

“School sports, gatherings of unvaccinated people, travel of unvaccinated people,” C-U Public Health Administrator Julie Pryde said Saturday.

On the bright side, Champaign County surpassed the 2 million test mark Saturday, when 4,475 pushed its pandemic total to 2,002,948.

That figure, which includes tests from the UI’s massive saliva-based program, represents nearly a tenth of the 20,068,566 tests run in Illinois.

For comparison’s sake, the county just ahead of Champaign in Illinois’ population rankings — St. Clair — has run 345,890 tests during the pandemic.

Champaign County’s 51 new cases pushed its pandemic total to 18,855, 326 of which are now active — an increase of 37 overnight.

Nine county residents are hospitalized with COVID, the same number as Friday. Active close contacts in quarantine now total 430, up by 18 overnight.
