• The CDC, Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), and the Lake County Health Department (LCHD) all have resources for COVID-19 (coronavirus). You can find links to their websites on the left. Click on the ISBE tab for the latest information from the Illinois State Board of Education.
     
    If you are feeling ill or think you have been exposed to COVID-19, please follow what the Lake County Health Department advises:
     
    Call your doctor: If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider immediately. 
     
    Do not walk into a healthcare facility, urgent care clinic, or hospital before calling. Discuss your symptoms with your doctor. If your doctor believes that you need to be tested for COVID-19, your doctor should call the Lake County Health Department Communicable Disease program to arrange for you to be assessed.
     
    If you have any COVID-19 questions, call the Illinois COVID-19 hotline at (800) 889-3931 or email dph.sick@illinois.gov.
