The City of Evanston reported this evening that approximately 85% of Evanston residents 12 and older have received at least one vaccine dose, and 70% are fully vaccinated.

Risk of Community Spread

The charts in the above chart box show that the weekly number of new cases per 100,000 in Evanston, Suburban Cook County, Chicago and the State are continuing to decline, and that they are each below IDPH’s benchmark of 50. The low test positivity rate in each region shows that testing is adequate. The data shows that all four regions are controlling the spread of the virus.

The relatively high vaccination rate in Evanston is an important factor in controlling the spread.
