They also reported another individual had been hospitalized, bringing that total to two.
Officials reported the number of those recovered at 43 on Friday.
On Thursday health officials had urged people to take precautions as we head into the Fourth of July weekend.
"It is likely individuals attending larger gatherings can be exposed to COVID-19. While Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois plan does allow opportunities for larger gatherings, the goal remains to keep individuals socially distanced, using safety precautions such as masks and hand sanitizer, and to keep individual groups small and separated. Where these measures cannot be followed, it is recommended that event organizers postpone their event and/or that individuals not attend. Further, we are noting a surge in cases nationally where precautions have been reduced, and areas where progress toward a safe reopening has stalled. "Adams County Health Department
