​Thank you for visiting the Kane County Health Department COVID-19 webpage  designed exclusively for parents, daycares, schools, and institutes of higher learning. We are dedicated to ensuring the health and safety of all children in Kane County.

The CDC's COVID-19 Community Levels are a new tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. Community levels can help schools and individuals make decisions and take precautions based on their local context and unique needs.
