JOLIET – New federal grant dollars awarded by an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will enable the Will County Community Health Center to expand available services and add behavioral health to its scope of practice.
JOLIET – Colder weather means fewer mosquitoes to test, but the Will County Health Department has collected West Nile Virus-positive mosquitoes from two locations that had not previously yielded positive results in 2014.
JOLIET – Bats collected from separate locations in Elwood became Will County’s latest wildlife rabies cases late Monday, September 8.
Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) is one of many non-polio enteroviruses. Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) infections are thought to occur less commonly than infections with other enteroviruses. EV-D68 was first identified in California in 1962. Compared with other enteroviruses, EV-D68 has been rarely reported in the United States for the last 40 years.
JOLIET – On August 17, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn signed the Illinois Smoke Free Campus Act. Illinois Public Act 098-0985 bans smoking (indoor and out), at all Illinois public university and college campuses beginning July 1, 2015.
JOLIET - For the second time in less than a week, a Will County bat found under odd circumstances has tested positive for rabies.
