An Open Letter to the Community:
COVID 19 Update:
Kane County Medical Society support recommendations from the Kane County Health Department and Illinois Department of Public Health.
We are happy to see numbers of COVID cases and deaths declining in our county.
We encourage people to follow recommended mitigation methods such as masking and social distancing if needed in the future.
Vaccination benefits outweigh risks for the vast majority of adults and children.
Kane County is a wonderful place to live, in large part due to the strong sense of community togetherness. Wearing a mask when and where needed and getting vaccinated are the best ways to show support for your community. Through vaccination we can stop the spread of new COVID-19 variants, which could save the life of your neighbor. The physicians of Kane County encourage you to strengthen our community and keep everyone healthy and safe.
Yours in Health,
The Kane County Medical Society
