CDPH COVID-19 Update: Latest Data, Two New Mass Vaccination Sites to Open in Chicago and More
COVID-19 test positivity have continued to increase this week. The highest case rate for new COVID cases in Chicago is among people age 18-39. The City’s coronavirus positivity is 4.7% and averaging approximately 542 new cases per day. 
More case-related data can be viewed on the COVID Daily Dashboard and vaccination data can be seen here. While many residents continue to receive vaccinations it is important for everyone to practice physical distancing, wear a face covering and wash their hands often. 

The City of Chicago announced that two new mass vaccination sites will open in Chicago on April 5, with the city now in phase 1c of COVID-19 vaccine eligibility. The sites will be located at Chicago State University and the American Airlines Conference Center at Gallagher Way next to Wrigley Field. Registration for vaccination appointments at both locations will be available on zocdoc.com/vaccine

The City’s new mass vaccination site at Chicago State University will be overseen by the Chicago Department of Public Health, with CORE (Community Organized Relief Effort) operating the site and vaccine administered by Howard Brown Health. At full capacity, it will serve 1,200 walk-up and 1,000 drive-thru vaccination appointments a day. The site is by appointment only, there is no on-site registration. The site will operate six days a week. Monday through Friday from 12:00 p.m. through 6:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. through 3:00 p.m. 

The mass vaccination site at the American Airlines Conference Center at Gallagher Way next to Wrigley Field will be operated by Advocate Aurora Health. It will have capacity to administer approximately 2,000 doses a day. The site is by appointment only, there is no on-site registration. The Pfizer vaccine is used at the American Airlines Conference Center at Gallagher Way next to Wrigley Field vaccination site (a second dose is required). 

Registration for both locations is now open and appointments will begin on April 5th. A limited number of appointments posted to zocdoc.com/vaccine each week, please check the site regularly for appointments

All Chicagoans eligible in phase 1a, 1b, or 1c will be able to schedule appointments. The vaccine will be offered at no cost, and insurance is not required. Documentation regarding immigration status is also not required. 

Appointments for both mass vaccination sites will be restricted to Chicago residents, and people will need to bring proof of residency to their appointment. Driver’s license, Illinois ID card or REAL ID, City Key Card, library card, postmarked letter, utility bill, voter registration confirmation, Consular ID (Matricula Consular), and many other forms of identification will all be accepted. A complete list of eligible documents is available here

The United Center mass vaccination site remains open and the focus is on vaccinating those 65 and older who live in the City of Chicago as well as people in vulnerable, under-vaccinated zip codes in the city. Getting seniors vaccinated is critical for preventing severe outcomes and protecting our healthcare system. Those 65 and up can sign up via CDPH's call center (312 746-4835) or at zocdoc.com/vaccine

Limited appointments are available on Zocdoc to anyone who is currently eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccine in the City of Chicago, including seniors 65 and older, persons 18-64 with underlying conditions, and essential workers. 
Street Sweeping Has Begun!
The Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation (DSS) has resumed their seasonal street sweeping schedule, as of April 1 and lasts through mid-November. DSS' fleet of street sweepers help to keep streets clean and prevent dirt and debris from entering the sewer system - ultimately allowing for better drainage during a rain storm.
Residents are asked to be mindful of all temporary and permanent street sweeping parking restriction signage. To ensure curb-to-curb street cleaning, bright orange temporary parking restrictions (shown right) are posted two days before sweeping service is scheduled to begin on any street. Some streets have permanent signage that specifies a once-per-week period when parking is prohibited for street sweeping.
Please take care to read all posted parking restriction signs and be aware that street cleaning signs take precedence over other posted signs on the street. Vehicles that violate street-sweeping restrictions will be issued a citation and possible tow. On street cleaning days, the streets should be kept clear of vehicles from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
Chicago Lights Social Service Center Food Pantry for Ward Residents
1 in 7 people may experience food insecurity this year. Chicago Lights Food Pantry helps people get the food they need—from dairy, eggs, and meat to nonperishable items to fresh produce. Each appointment provides a guest with supplemental groceries, making limited resources go farther and healthy, delicious meals a reality.

To determine your eligibility, make an appointment, or to learn about the other services available, please call 312-640-2571 and leave a voicemail. A representative from Chicago Lights will call you back within 24 business hours.
A Message from the Cook County Assessor: Property Tax Exemption Deadline Extended
Cook County Assessor Fritz Kaegi announced today that his office has extended the property tax exemption application deadline for tax year 2020 to Friday, April 9, 2021.

Assessor Kaegi sent notices in February to hundreds of thousands of households notifying them that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Illinois legislature has allowed for the automatic renewal of many exemptions. For most property owners there is no need to reapply. (State law requires an audit of auto-renewed exemptions. Any households selected for audit were mailed forms that allow them to re-verify their exemptions online or by mail.)

The following exemptions will automatically renew for homeowners who received them last year (tax year 2019) and remained eligible this year (tax year 2020). Please Note: Longtime and Returning Veterans Exemptions will not auto renew this year.

  • Homeowner Exemption (annual auto-renewal)
  • Senior Exemption (annual auto-renewal)
  • Senior Freeze Exemption (2020 auto-renewal)
  • Persons with Disabilities Exemption (2020 auto-renewal)                                 
  • Veterans with Disabilities Exemption (2020 auto-renewal)

The Assessor’s Office also recently identified households who may be newly eligible for exemptions (such as homes that recently sold before January 1, 2020) and homes that have not received an exemption in the last two years. Purple booklets containing applications and instructions on how to apply for the Homeowner, Senior, and Senior Freeze Exemptions were mailed to these properties. Homeowners can either complete the paper application(s) or apply online on the Assessor’s website. If a Homeowner already successfully applied online for the exemption before receiving the purple booklet, responding again is not necessary.

With the recent changes and improvements to the exemption application process, the Assessor’s Office will host a Virtual Assistance Day on Thursday, April 1 to provide property owners with personalized exemption assistance. Taxpayers can learn how to ensure they are receiving both current and past year exemptions and information will also be provided to help first time exemption applicants. Homeowners can reserve an appointment here.
Wear A Mask! Protect Yourself and Others
Earlier this week the CDC published updated guidance on mask usage. Correct and consistent mask use is a critical step everyone can take to prevent getting and spreading COVID-19. Masks work best when everyone wears them, but not all masks provide the same protection. When choosing a mask, look at how well it fits, how well it filters the air, and how many layers it has. 
Choose a mask with a nose wire  

  • A nose wire is a metal strip along the top of the mask. 
  • Nose wires prevent air from leaking out of the top of the mask. 
  • Bend the nose wire over your nose to fit close to your face. 
Use a mask fitter or brace  

  • Use a mask fitter or brace over a disposable mask or a cloth mask to prevent air from leaking around the edges of the mask. 
  • A mask should fit snugly against the sides of your face and not have gaps.
Check that it fits snugly over your nose, mouth, and chin  

  • Check for gaps by cupping your hands around the outside edges of the mask. 
  • Make sure no air is flowing from the area near your eyes or from the sides of the mask.
  • If the mask has a good fit, you will feel warm air come through the front of the mask and may be able to see the mask material move in and out with each breath
Add layers of material  

  • Use a cloth mask that has multiple layers of fabric. 
  • Wear one disposable mask underneath a cloth mask (the second mask should push the edges of the inner mask against your face). 
Combine two disposable masks  

  • Disposable masks are not designed to fit tightly and wearing more than one will not improve fit. 
Combine a KN95 mask with any other mask 

  • Only use one KN95 mask at a time.
  • KN95 masks are a type of filtering facepiece respirator that are commonly made in China and similar to N95 masks commonly used in the United States.  
  • BE AWARE: About 60% of KN95 masks in the United States are counterfeit (fake) and DO NOT meet NIOSH requirements.
Finally, the CDC recommends you do NOT touch the mask when wearing it. If you have to often touch/adjust your mask, it doesn’t fit you properly, and you may need to find a different mask or make adjustments.

As a reminder during these cold winter months, scarves, ski masks, etc. are not substitutes for masks. More information about mask guidance can be found on the CDC's website.
