DuPage County COVID-19 Dashboard

dupage mapThe DuPage County Health Department has launched an interactive COVID-19 case map. The dashboard links data from the DuPage County Health Department into Geographic Information System (GIS) Data Systems from DuPage County to provide a greater level of understanding into how the COVID-19 pandemic is unfolding across our communities.

DuPage County does not release exact locations or addresses of the confirmed cases, due to privacy and HIPAA laws. Information including age range, gender as well as municipality of residence of the cases identified through testing will be incorporated. Since testing resources are limited to the most severe cases and at-risk populations, this does not reflect total disease presence in our communities. As testing becomes more available, this information will become more reflective of the actual disease activity in the community.

Assistance for Senior Citizens

Assistance for senior citizensOur senior citizen population is at a higher risk for severe illness because of COVID-19. The Glen Ellyn Senior Center is providing information on services available to our seniors to help ensure their health and safety during this time.
