The spike in cases for Effingham County comes amid a statewide rise in infections.

Effingham County's health department reported a record 13 new cases of COVID-19 Coronavirus Friday, a jump that almost put the county into a warning level statewide. The total for the county is now 334, with 65 cases that are actively being monitored by the Health Department, 264 that have recovered.

As a public service, Perry Memorial Hospital & Shaw Media have partnered to provide open access to information related to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) emergency.

ZIP code areas with six or more cases in Bureau County are: Princeton, 28 confirmed cases out of 1,401 tests; Spring Valley, 25 cases out of 930 tests; Buda, six cases out of 75 tests and DePue, 16 cases out of 112 tests.

There are 1,482 active cases and a total of 4,788 have recovered.

In total, 3,805 Bureau County residents; 435 Putnam County residents; and 1,442 Marshall County residents have been tested for COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic.

Due to the large number of new cases each day, the state is not necessarily reporting individual cases by age, gender or city. None of the new deaths were from Marshall, Starke, or Pulaski counties.

People between the ages of 18 and 40 made up the majority of confirmed cases with 48 percent; people between the ages of 41 and 60, 30 percent; people between the ages 61 and 80, 12 percent; people older than 81, 4 percent; and 6 percent have been younger than 18.
