This is a daily joint communication from the Logan County Department of Public Health and Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital updating you on the status of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Logan County.

NEW - This communication will come daily Monday – Friday and during the weekend as necessary.

One confirmed positive case from Mason County is still hospitalized at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital.

NEW - The total number of confirmed positive cases in Logan County is 4. Previously, five positives were recorded for Logan County but as explained in prior joint communications, the fifth COVID-19 positive case was tested in Aurora, Illinois and was considered a “temporary resident”.

Logan County Data

The table below represents Logan County residents. This table is maintained by the Logan County Department of Public Health and is available at The discrepancy between the number of inpatients at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital in the table above and the LCDPH table below is because ALMH may be caring for patients from outside of Logan County.

A recovered individual is someone who has tracked their symptoms twice daily and reported that they have been symptom-free for 72 hours to the Logan County Department of Public Health. The total number of positives on the Logan County dashboard represents a historical running total of confirmed positive cases.
