The case that I noted yesterday in a 74 year old male will be transferred to Michigan.  Although testing  was conducted in Piatt Co., he is a Michigan resident.  He is currently hospitalized locally and contact tracing will be conducted to ensure that local contacts remain quarantined for a 14 day period according to IDPH Guidelines.
The 2nd case noted in the Piatt County numbers above is a 37 year old female. She was symptomatic and went to a drive thru testing event held in Champaign on April 2.  She is quarantined in her household with her family.
2 of our 3 cases are recovered and are being monitored.
