A special message regarding Coronavirus

This isn’t easy but it’s necessary, please STAY AT HOME!!!! 

Instead of the family getting together and going to our family church, we will be watching it via live stream. Instead of our normally large Easter dinner,we are doing a Zoom Easter dinner! Technology is great! Even though I want to go out and celebrate with my family I know that STAYING IN could SAVE MY LIFE or SOMEONE ELSE’S!

As of today Chicago has 7,278 cases of COVID-19 of that number 212 lost the battle to this virus. Over the past week the number of new cases have been grow by the hundreds daily! Of the 212 deaths over 70% have been African American. That is why those of us who can, need to stay inside as much as possible! Not just for our own personal safety but the safety of the most vulnerable in our community. In the last week the CDC has given the directive to wear a cloth mask when going out in public. But even if you have a mask it is best to stay home!

There is no treatment or cure for COVID-19. 

For most people, the illness is generally mild and can be safely managed at home. Testing is only indicated for individuals who are at risk of serious illness, like people over 60 or with underlying medical conditions. It’s important that we follow these testing guidelines to protect healthcare workers and avoid spreading the virus in our communities. Everyone, regardless of whether they have symptoms, should practice social distancing and good hand hygiene.

How to determine if you need testing

Question 1: Are you having symptoms like fever, cough, or difficulty breathing?

  • If YES: Please answer Question #2.
  • If NO: Testing is not needed. If you have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, stay home and monitor symptoms for 14 days.

Question 2: Are your symptoms severe?

  • If YES: Call your doctor or 911.
  • If NO: Please answer Question #3.

Question 3: Are you over 60? And/or do you have an underlying medical condition like diabetes, cancer or heart disease?

  • If YES: Contact your doctor to determine if testing is needed.
  • IF NO: Testing is not needed. Stay home for 7 days from symptom onset and 72 hours after fever is gone and symptoms improve (whichever is longer) to avoid getting anyone else sick.

If you have any additional questions please email us at coronavirus@chicago.gov or call 312-746-4835.

Our office will continue to work remotely until April 13th at the earliest. However starting tomorrow we will be doing wellness checks on constituents across the ward, of course from a safe distance. If you have any questions or concerns please call our office at 773-966-5336.
