The Winnebago County Health Department's recommendation is due to concerns about growing COVID-19 numbers. Wisconsin and 19 other states are on the list.

Winnebago County is at “warning level,” according to the Illinois Department of Public Health. That means more needs to be done to reduce the spread of COVID-19 as cases and deaths in the region have been increasing.
