The number of active coronavirus cases in McLean County is at its lowest level in two months.
The McLean County Health Department reported Monday there are nine COVID-19 patients who are all isolating at home. No one is hospitalized.
Those nine active cases are the lowest tally since April 30, when there were eight. Cases spiked in mid-May after an outbreak at a Bloomington nursing home and among some Illinois State University students. McLean County has not yet seen a big increase in cases despite a slight uptick in testing, a partially reopened economy, and various social justice demonstrations.
The health department on Monday did report one new case, a person in their 70s, who is isolating at home.
To date, McLean County has seen 258 confirmed COVID-19 cases. Most have recovered. Thirteen people have died, including 10 tied to the nursing home.
