MONDAY’S VACCINATION UPDATES: 11.8% of Champaign County has received first dose, 2.3% fully vaccinated


A week after being detected in Vermilion County, the B117 virus variant has officially made it to Champaign County.

Lab results from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention arrived Mon-day, confirming one local case.

The news from the CDC, announced by Urbana Mayor Diane Marlin during Monday night’s city council meeting, wasn’t a surprise to Champaign-Urbana Public Health Administrator Julie Pryde.

Pryde told The News-Gazette Monday night that the district is still awaiting the results of “quite a few” samples considered probable for the more contagious variant.







Region




It has been 162 days since the seven-day positivity rate for the region that includes Champaign, Douglas, Ford, Iroquois, Piatt and Vermilion counties was as low as it is Monday.

Region 6’s rate fell from 5.1 to 4.6 percent overnight, a number it hit last on Aug. 23.

Hospitalizations in the region also dropped again, from 150 to 147. It’s now been 16 days since that number increased.

The metrics the state uses to determine a region’s positivity rate cover a seven-day period that ended three days ago (figures posted Monday are through Jan. 29).

Region 6’s metrics exclude data from the University of Illinois campus’ saliva testing. (If UI tests were included, the region’s rate would be 1.9 percent).

Here’s a look at Region 6’s seven-day positivity rates since Jan. 1 (with three-day lags):

  • Jan. 1: 9.0 percent
