According to a Saturday afternoon news release, Calhoun County has reported two COVID-19 related deaths. In the release, the victims were identified as elderly who had risk factors that increased the chance of complications from the COVID-19 virus. 

Calhoun County expresses the deepest sympathies to the families, friends and loved ones of the victims.

The symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, headache, chills, muscle and body aches and lethargy, as well as other symptoms. 

IDPH and Calhoun County Public Health recommend you stay home for at least 72 hours after your fever is gone (without the use of fever-reducing medicine) and 10 days from onset of symptoms and other symptoms have improved. You should stay home from work, school, travel, shopping, social events and public gatherings. When at home, stay in your room and consider wearing a facemask to help prevent spreading the virus if you need to go into other parts of the home and be around other people.
