The La Salle County Health Department was unable to provide updates to COVID-19 numbers Sunday, because of technical difficulties with the state’s reporting system for the majority of the day. The new cases from Sunday will be reported with the new cases on Monday, the health department said.
On Saturday, there were 22 new cases of COVID-19 and 12 people removed from isolation. There have been 10,668 confirmed and probably cases since the beginning of the pandemic, and of those cases, 8,020 have been removed from isolation, as of Saturday.
