With a daring jump, long-tailed neighbor threatens the backyard peace

Additional COVID-19 mitigation efforts went into effect Wednesday, Nov. 11, in three of Illinois' 11 health regions, including two near the South Suburbs.

Region 5 (Southern Illinois), Region 7 (Will and Kankakee counties), and Region 8 (Kane and DuPage counties), are seeing a test positivity rate that remains above 8% and continues to rise after more than 14 days under Tier 1 mitigations, which exceeds the threshold set for establishing additional mitigation measures under the state’s Restore Illinois Resurgence Plan.

All 11 regions are under additional mitigation orders. 

Homewood and Flossmoor are in Region . . .
