As COVID-19 cases skyrocket throughout the country, Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Governor J.B. Pritzker have issued stay-at-home advisories for both the city and state in an effort to stem massive local outbreaks. Curious about how your neighborhood is faring? Check out this interactive map from The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) for some key insights.

The map's data is drawn from COVID-19 tests completed at IDPH, commercial and hospital laboratories across the entire state, and it's updated daily. If you hover your mouse over the map, you'll be able to see the total number of cases in areas throughout the state; dark blue indicates the highest number of cases, while light gray indicates the fewest. Data can be viewed by county or zip code (zip code, of course, paints a much clearer picture for Chicago residents). 

As you browse, there are a few things to keep in mind: First, this data depicts total COVID-19 cases, not the current amount of active cases. Second, this data reflects the zip code of residence, not the zip code of exposure. Given the city and state's mounting positivity rate, IDPH says folks should assume that the virus can be contracted anywhere. 

Want to view even more info? Charts below the map also delve into case and death demographics by race, gender and age. And for the most up-to-date information about total case loads, test positivity rates and other virus-related info, tune into Governor Pritzker's daily briefings at 2:30pm. Stay safe out there, Chicago, and don't forget to wear a mask.
