Today's coronavirus updates #COVID19

Today's report on coronavirus cases 673 new cases and now the statewide total is 2,528 cases with 7 more deaths reported and this time no information as far as location. If you click through the below link to CapFax we see a breakdown as far as ethnicity. I won't characterize this as very important, however, it's very interesting the percentage of those cases marked as "left blank".
Anyway cases are now being reported in 37 of Illinois' 102 counties with Franklin and Tazewell now reporting coronavirus cases.

I also want to note that the city in a press conference today and no doubt you likely got an alert on your smartphones - iPhone and Android - that the Mayor has ordered the lakefront closed. The emphasis is on social distancing and avoid being in large groups and keep at least 6 feet away. [VIDEO]

I was on the bus today and someone took that social distancing thing seriously. The person he confronted didn't get it - an older man and he moved as far away from that man.

As always take your precautions, I do believe this coronavirus is a really nasty disease especially if you're vulnerable. One piece of advice on this is to do the five below.
And yes part four suggest staying more than 3 feet apart from someone else. Regardless do what you need to keep yourself safe. If you take public transit do the five and even CTA has signs out on buses and trains promoting social distancing. Don't take any chances and be careful out there.
