Rock Island County is no longer in warning status for COVID-19.

A week ago, the Illinois Department of Public Health showed the county in warning because two statistics failed to meet its targets. But today, only one number fails to meet the state's standard. Rock Island County has 121 confirmed COVID cases per 100,000 residents. The state target is 50. And that means the county is not in warning status according to state standards. 

The county's test positivity rate is 4% percent compared to 2.4% a month ago.

Scott County's test positivity rate has reached 11% compared to 3.3% a month ago. And 20 people are in the hospital with COVID-19 compared to five a month ago.
