As a routine matter, but especially during the current pandemic, persons who are not hospitalized but who have possible or confirmed COVID-19 should be instructed to isolate themselves in a private residence until 7 days following the onset of a illness and 72 hours after being consistently fever-free without the use of fever- reducing medication and with resolving respiratory symptoms. Caregivers should consult your healthcare provider for children with fever and sore throat to determine if testing is indicated for other illnesses such as strep throat. (Per IDPH Public Health Guidance for COVID-19)

Monroe County WIC Clients:
WIC services will be provided via telephone. Coupons will be picked up curbside. Please contact us prior to your appointment if you do not hear from us for further instruction. You may NOT show up without a scheduled appointment!
