It’s important that we follow recommendations from state and federal health officials and stay home as much as possible.

We are seeing cases of COVID-19 increase drastically as more testing becomes available. Do your part to prevent the spread and flatten the curve by staying home, and practice social distancing when you do essential activities, such as grocery shopping and picking up medications.

The latest number of cases and deaths can be found in the Chicago Sun-Times graph below:

My colleagues and I continue to advocate fiercely with the governor, local leaders, and health agencies to open more testing sites in minority neighborhoods and ensure that adequate resources — such as masks and hand sanitizer — are being delivered to communities that need them most.

I am pleased to share that over the next few weeks the City of Chicago will open six new testing sites, all of which will serve black and brown neighborhoods. This is part of an effort to expand testing to communities disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The six locations are listed below:

● Gately Park, Pullman
● Guaranteed Rate Field, Bridgeport
● Maria Saucedo Scholastic Academy, Little Village
● Dr. Jorge Prieto Math and Science Academy, Belmont Cragin
● Kennedy-King College, Englewood
● Senka Park, Gage Park

The testing location in the parking lot of Guaranteed Rate Field will be drive-thru only and will specifically serve asymptomatic first responders, health care professionals and other essential workers in Chicago. All other testing sites will have the option of a walk-up visit.
