Thursday lede




For the sixth straight day, the seven-day positivity rate for the region that covers Champaign, Douglas, Ford, Piatt and Vermilion counties decreased — from 13.1 to 12.7 percent.

The drops come amid advanced (or Tier 3) mitigation measures being in effect statewide.

To move onto the less-restrictive Tier 2, a region must meet three criteria:

— A seven-day average positivity rate below 12 percent for three consecutive days.

— Greater than 20 percent available ICU and hospital bed availability for three consecutive days.

— Declining seven-day COVID hospitalizations average in seven of the last 10 days.

The metrics the state uses to determine a region’s rate cover a seven-day period that ended three days ago (figures posted Thursday are through Nov. 23).

Region 6’s metrics exclude data from the UI campus’ saliva testing (if UI tests were included, the region’s rate would be 5.4 percent).

A look at the Region 6 rate in November:

  • Nov. 1: 10.0 percent
  • Nov. 2: 10.0 percent
  • Nov. 3: 10.2 percent
  • Nov. 4: 10.2 percent
  • Nov. 5: 10.8 percent
  • Nov. 6: 11.3 percent
  • Nov. 7: 11.9 percent
  • Nov. 8: 12.2 percent
  • Nov. 9: 12.7 percent
  • Nov. 10: 13.0 percent
  • Nov. 11: 13.5 percent
  • Nov. 12: 13.6 percent
  • Nov. 13: 14.0 percent
  • Nov. 14: 14.0 percent
  • Nov. 15: 14.0 percent
  • Nov. 16: 14.3 percent
  • Nov. 17: 14.6 percent
  • Nov. 18: 14.5 percent
  • Nov. 19: 14.0 percent
  • Nov. 20: 13.7 percent
  • Nov. 21: 13.4 percent
  • Nov. 22: 13.1 percent
  • Nov. 23: 12.7 percent

Below is a look at the rolling seven-day rates of the 21 counties that make up Region 6, and how those rates compare to the previous day:

  • Lawrence: 22.4 percent (-1.5)
  • Fayette: 21.4 percent (-1.3)
  • Clay: 19.9 percent (+1.3)
  • Effingham: 19.1 percent (—)
  • Jasper: 17.9 percent (+1.4)
  • Iroquois: 17.2 percent (-1.5)
  • Shelby: 15.7 percent (+0.5)
  • Vermilion: 14.9 percent (+0.5)
  • Cumberland: 14.7 percent (-0.9)
  • Richland: 14.7 percent (-0.4)
  • Crawford: 14.5 percent (-1.0)
  • DeWitt: 13.5 percent (+2.0)
  • Macon: 13.2 percent (-1.5)
  • Douglas: 11.8 percent (-1.2)
  • Piatt: 11.5 percent (-0.3)
  • Moultrie: 9.9 percent (-1.0)
  • Ford: 9.8 percent (+0.1)
  • Clark: 9.6 percent (-0.8)
  • Champaign: 8.6 percent (-0.3)
  • Edgar: 8.2 percent (—)
  • Coles: 7.8 percent (+0.1)

If the UI’s saliva testing results were included in the state’s count, Champaign County’s seven-day rate would be 2.0 percent, same as the five previous days.
