“Celebrate the Fourth of July holiday weekend while exercising appropriate caution,” said IDPH Director Dr. Ngozi Ezike. “While many events are outside, it is still important for unvaccinated people to take precautions and, when necessary, avoid large crowds where social distancing is not possible. For indoor events, unvaccinated people should continue to wear masks, and vaccinated individuals may choose to do so as well as the more virulent strain of COVID-19, Delta variant, increases in Illinois.”
A total of 12,648,167 vaccines have been administered in Illinois as of last midnight. The seven-day rolling average of vaccines administered daily is 41,150 doses. Since reporting on Friday, June 25, 2021, 288,050 doses were reported administered in Illinois.
