March 31, 2020 - Oak Park Public Health Director Mike Charley announced today that six more Village residents had tested positive for the COVID-19 coronavirus. Oak Park now has 36 confirmed cases, according to the Illinois Department of Public Health. The new cases reported today are individuals who range in ages from their 30s to their 70s. A second Oak Park Police officer has tested positive as well, according to Charley, who said the officer chose to self-quarantine immediately upon exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 and has remained out of the workplace since mid-March. Pursuant to Village personnel policies, employees who have had direct contact with the officer have been notified, but because the contact was greater than 14 days ago, they are not subject to quarantine. Under current state public health protocols, anyone who has had close direct contact with any individual who tests positive for COVID-19 is notified through the appropriate public health authority. Because of privacy laws, no additional information can be released about individuals who have tested positive.
