Williamson County Courthouse, court proceedings and judicial department were closed on Monday morning by the county’s presiding judge after two employees tested positive for COVID-19. Court is canceled and those offices will be closed through Tuesday.

Illinois reported its highest single-day number of new COVID-19 infections in more than two months Friday as the state continued to experience a resurgence of the novel coronavirus disease.

Illinois' Region 1 saw a second straight day with a COVID-19 test positivity rate exceeding 8% Tuesday, and the governor’s office announced the region would see increased mitigations starting Saturday, Oct. 3, due to the rising rate of spread.

Region 5 of the state's coronavirus plan, which includes Southern Illinois, reached 8% for its COVID-19 positivity rate as of Oct. 10, the latest day for which data were available. Two more days above that number and the region would be due for greater bar and restaurant restrictions.

As Illinois COVID-19 infection rates continued to fall Tuesday, Pritzker said the first delivery of a vaccine could arrive in Illinois as early as next week, although it could take several months before it is widely available to the general public.
