Illinois Department of Public Health Director Ngozi Ezike announced at the governor’s Monday press conference that the state will begin releasing COVID-19 case data by zip code.
“It should be assumed, however, that COVID-19 is occurring in every zip code in Illinois,” Ezike said.
Zip code 60098, which consists of Woodstock, Hartland, Greenwood and part of Bull Valley, had 20 confirmed cases. Zip code 60014, which consists of Crystal Lake and Lakewood, along with zip code 60102, which consists of Algonquin, both had 20 confirmed cases each as well.

Zip code 60051, which consists of Johnsburg and part of Lakemoor, has 10 confirmed cases. Spring Grove has 7.
Marengo, Harvard, Richmond, and unincorporated Crystal Lake all have less than six cases each. Both Hebron and Ringwood have no confirmed cases yet.
The McHenry County Department of Health reported a fourth coronavirus-related death on Monday and 145 confirmed cases countywide.
McHenry County has two COVID-19 testing sites, the health department said. One is located at Northwestern Medicine Hospital in Huntley and the second is located at Mercyhealth Hospital and Medical Center in Harvard.
However, health officials say that testing is still limited and those who experience worsening symptoms must first be evaluated by their primary care physician before being tested.
The Illinois Department of Public Health said on Monday that the state’s COVID-19 total has reached 12,262 cases and 307 deaths. The number of people tested so far is at 62,942, data shows.
