Just one day prior, Charley reported that two residents tested positive for COVID-19 April 17. The individuals in those cases range in age from their 40s to their 80s, as well.
The village cannot release further information regarding any of the cases due to privacy laws.
“It is important to note that as patient tracking and case follow-up occurs, individuals listed within the number of Oak Park cases reported may change depending on residency confirmation,” the announcements read.
As with the previously reported cases, the village announcement stated, “The Oak Park Department of Public Health is working closely with officials from the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), investigating and notifying anyone who may have had exposure to the individual who tested positive for COVID-19. Local public health officials, hospitals and first responders are following protocols consistent with the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).”
