COVID-19 Information

Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) serves 2.5 million residents and 127 municipalities in suburban Cook County, excluding Evanston, Oak Park, Skokie and Stickney Township, which have their own state-certified health departments. 

CCDPH has been working around the clock with public health and emergency management counterparts at all levels of government to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic since the first COVID-19 case was identified on Jan. 24 in a Chicago area resident. This has included case investigations, contact tracing and monitoring; disease surveillance and control; and providing situational updates and guidance to the public, media and partners.

We are committed to ensuring that suburban Cook County residents, partners, elected officials and the media get trusted, accurate information about our local situation and response. This section of our website is intended to be a ‘one-stop shop’ for information about COVID-19 in suburban Cook County.
