COVID-19 surge continues to rage locally, statewide

Graphs showing the trajectory of COVID-19 cases in recent weeks make the spring peak look like a foothill. 

The fall surge of COVID-19 infections is getting worse in spite of statewide restrictions on indoor dining and gathering sizes, and on Thursday, Gov. J.B. Pritzker implored local governments to do more to enforce mitigation rules.

"I cannot stress enough the severity of our situation. This rise is unsustainable," he said. "What we all do will determine how much worse the coming weeks will look."

The state set a new record . . .
