Today In The Port

From the Governor.

Northwestern Illinois has continued to see a surging positivity rate, now up to 11.9%. We’ve said all along that if things don’t start to turn around after two weeks in Tier 1, we'll add more stringent measures to help get things more open again. That's now the case in Region 1.

Starting Sunday, October 25, northwestern Illinois will face additional mitigations, such as a tighter gathering cap of 10 individuals instead of 25, and new table caps of 6 instead of 10 when eating out. You can read the new Tier 2 rules here: www2.illinois.gov/IISNews/22253-Tier_2_COVID-19_Resurgence_Migitations.pdf

Both Region 1, bordering Wisconsin and Iowa, and Region 4, here next to Missouri, carry the additional responsibility of navigating a situation where the massive surge of cases in our neighboring states will continue to have a spillover effect. There is no easy fix.

So as colder weather comes upon us–and brings flu season along with it–it’s imperative that we take extra caution and extra care. Because at the end of the day, this is bigger than you. This is about all of us, and the communities we call home. We have to take care of each other.

Restore Illinois - get rid of our stupid governor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t live in little chicago hence Rockford! Rural Illinois can handle themselves

Good luck with this..

I will be going out and about. traveling into Michigan, we saw a lot of signs that read, “Our governor is an idiot.” A lot more classy than “Pritzker sucks” but the message is the same, nonetheless.

How about we just make Winnebago county do this. They seem to have more testing than anyone else, which will show more positives. The more they test, the higher the number goes. It only makes sense. According to some, were all gonna die. I ain't buying it.

A few Play stupid games, everyone wins stupid prizes. 🤦🏻‍♂️

Here’s a fun game, try to get a hotel room in Galena.

Copied from a resident of Winnebago county: I was stunned to learn what the media and government means by the current “positivity rate” of COVID 19. I live in Winnebago County Illinois. The government currently says we have a “positivity rate” of 11%. I thought that meant that 11% of all people in Winnebago County were positive for COVID. That is not true. What “positivity rate” really means is this: If 100 people are tested for COVID, 11 of them are currently testing positive, and 89 are negative. So the “positivity rate has nothing to do with the percentage of people in Winnebago County that has COVID. But exactly what is that percentage? Well, the total population of Winnebago County is 282,572, and the total number of current confirmed cases in Winnebago County is 3,568. So if you divide the total number of current confirmed cases (3,562) by the total population(282,572) this equals .013. In other words, only 1.3% of all people in Winnebago County currently have the virus. Of course this does not include persons that may have the virus, but have no symptoms, and those people aren’t tested. But the bottom line is that, excluding the people that have the virus with no symptoms, 98.7% of people in Winnebago County DO NOT have the virus!! Does the fact that only 1.3% of all persons in Winnebago County have the virus, justify Pritzker’s lock down?

If you sign up to get tested and miss your test date/ time, it's counted a a positive case

No one is listening! Here’s something to listen to instead! Our podcast! My wife and I host! Enjoy! https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/keeping-it-real-with-the-freemans/id1434626304?i=1000495114988

I do my best wear a mask, try your best to social distance,sanitize/ wash your hands ,An don’t touch your face!!!!!

You want to restore Illinois, get rid of the “ass” in Springfield.

Cry about it prickster

11.9 percent of the 1200 of the total population that got tested

😂

Ignore button.

Ppl you need to wear your mask distance wash your hands to get this under control It’s really not that hard

Cue the “blame pritzker” and ignore a public health crisis morons commenting in 3, 2, 1.....

A bunch of skirts in this state. African people are not 1/4 scared of EBOLA and you all in America are hiding from a 1/3 strength flu. A common flu!! Why didn't we shut down God's green earth in 2009 for swineflu? All schools, colleges, restaurants, factories and malls were functioning. No economic shutdown for that but a halfass flu let's kill the global economy!! 😖😖😖😖😖😖😖😖😖😖😖😖😖

fuck the fat peace of shit

Liberals hate freedom and love to be told what to do.

Tell him to stick it up his ass,he knows by now he has no authority.No one will enforce it either,not even the health dept.
