Public Service Announcement: Just received our bi-weekly COVID-19 update hosted by the McDonough County Health Department and includes information from McDonough District Hospital, Western Illinois University, and the Emergency Services Disaster Agency for McDonough County. Unfortunately, our region is trending upward again. Of greater concern is that Bushnell, specifically, is reporting an increase in positive cases from last week to this week, in particular among our most senior folks. The positivity rate in a community is the leading metric for school districts. Stay safe and healthy everyone.
