There is concern from top leaders in the Illinois Department of Public Health, that Illinoisans are getting tired of hearing about COVID and will stop practicing safety measures. Dr. Ngozi Ezike, Director of the IDPH, spoke late last week about COVID and expressed her concern over “COVID fatigue.”
Dr. Ezike went on to warn that we as Illinoisans cannot stop being defensive despite getting back to normal.
Governor JB Pritzker is asking for local officials to step up to give stiffer penalties for those who don’t follow guidelines.
Over 215,000 people have had COVID in Illinois with 2,200 new cases reported on Friday alone.
