SPRINGFIELD — As the state reaches more than 400 confirmed cases of COVID-19, State Senator Bertino-Tarrant (D-Shorewood) urges Illinoisans to continue to stay educated about the situation and what they can do to help slow the spread of the virus, protect the most vulnerable citizens and reduce stress on our health care system.

“It is more important than ever for people to be aware of the daily status surrounding coronavirus and how it’s affecting our community and state,” Bertino-Tarrant said. “For the sake of the health and safety of everyone in our communities, we must all do our part to help contain the virus.”

Since the first cases of coronavirus were diagnosed in Illinois, Gov. JB Pritzker has been offering daily updates on some of the measures to ensure minimal spreading of the coronavirus. The governor launched a new website Wednesday to put all relevant information from his daily briefings in one place. It can be found at coronavirus.illinois.gov

The website contains archived videos of all of Pritzker’s previous news conferences on the subject, prevention tips, and a comprehensive list of resources for families, medical providers and more.

Additionally, the Illinois Department of Public Health will continue to provide updates on the status of the outbreak.

“Illinois is a strong state made up of strong communities,” Bertino-Tarrant said. “We will get through this together. I recommend everyone continue to stay calm, positive and educated."
