LANSING, Ill. (June 14, 2021) – We began sharing COVID-related data and statistics on March 26, 2020, and throughout the past 15 months we’ve experimented with different ways of presenting whatever information we felt was relevant, accurate, and useful. Adding interactive charts created by HiGeorge helped put trends in perspective. Adding the COVID dashboard created by South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association helped give local context. We are grateful for the efforts of those two organizations.

Having entered Phase 5 of Restore Illinois on Friday, June 11, we will follow the lead of the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and publish a new post only when they send out new information. They plan to continue to update the data daily on their website, but distribute news releases weekly. The COVID quick-links we have in our sidebar will continue to provide direct access to the IDPH website for anyone interested in reviewing the daily numbers.


The South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association maintains a COVID dashboard aggregating data from villages throughout the south suburbs. Highlights from Lansing are listed below:

  • Cumulative total of COVID-19 cases: 3,502 (Previous reported total: 3,502)
  • Cumulative total of COVID-19 deaths: 20 (Previous day’s total: 20)
  • Seven-day positivity rate: 1.66% (Reported on 6/11/21)


The graphs below are created by HiGeorge and are “live,” so they are continually updated as new data are released from official sources.

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) today reported 165 new confirmed and probable cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Illinois, including 9 additional deaths.
