COVID-19 cases continue to surge in Illinois. New figures yesterday show the daily average number of cases exceeded 16-thousand statewide for the first time during the pandemic. The daily average increase was largely due to a record number of infections for a single day on Christmas Eve. The surge has prompted officials to caution the public about participating in large gatherings for New Year’s Eve.
