Like the horror movies with a bunch of sequels where the deranged serial killer keeps coming back, COVID 19 just doesn’t want to go away. New COVID stats show a surge in the number of counties at high community risk level. Montgomery County has returned to the list along with Macoupin and neighboring Sangamon Counties. Illinois Public Health officials say the Memorial Day Weekend started an uptick in cases with a ten percent increase in cases since. Prior to that, the state saw a two week downward trend. Public health officials are urging residents to prepare for more family gatherings on Father’s day by having up to date vaccinations and boosters.
