With COVID-19 spread now exponential in every region of the state, statewide positivity rate at record highs and hospitalizations already surpassing the Spring peak, all 11 regions will move into Tier 3 effective November 20, 2020 at 12:01 a.m. The mitigation requirements can be found at the link below.

IDPH will continue to track the positivity rates and hospital capacity metrics in regions over a 14-day monitoring period to determine if mitigations can be relaxed, if additional mitigations are required, or if current mitigation should remain in place. In order for a region to move back to Tier 2 mitigations, a region must experience less than 12 percent test positivity rate for three consecutive days AND greater than 20 percent available intensive care unit (ICU) and hospital bed availability AND declining COVID hospitalizations in 7 out of the last 10 days.

Together with the Illinois Department of Public Health, DuPage County Health Department, the Village of Lisle encourages residents to do their part in helping slow the spread of COVID-19. Follow the 3 W's when you leave your home. WEAR a face mask, WATCH your distance and WASH your hands. The DuPage County Health Department COVID-19 dashboard, shows the number of lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases in each municipality.
