State Representative Chris Miller (R – Oakland) announces an update on COVID-19 (coronavirus) in the 110th District.
“On March 14th, the Illinois Department of Public Health announced a single case in the 110th District in Cumberland County. The individual is a 70-year-old male who was diagnosed in Coles County and is in self-quarantine at home. This single case in our district should not be cause for panic or alarm. However, I urge residents to follow President Trump’s ‘15 Days to Slow the Spread’ guidelines,” Rep. Miller stated.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) urge people to use a practice known as “social distancing.” Social distancing is the practice of minimizing social contact with others by limiting social events, avoiding public transit and crowded places, and keeping a physical distance of at least 6 feet between others.
Rep. Miller continued, “My office will remain open as a resource and to service the great people of the 110th District at this time.”
