The number of Covid-19 cases at Park Pointe Healthcare and Rehabitation Center in Morris continues to increase.

That’s according to the Illinois Department of Public Health as they announced late last week that 24 residents have tested positive which is an increase of four from the previous number of 20.

Earlier this month, IDPH officials were notified about the cases at Park Pointe. In addition to the number of cases, another person has died at Park Pointe, which is the second confirmed death from Covid-19 at the facility.

It is unknown how old the individual was or if they had underlying health conditions. The number of people who have died from Covid-19 in Grundy County is at four.
