One additional death confirmed as COVID-19 and nine additional cases were reported in Kendall County nursing homes, according to Friday's weekly update from the Illinois Department of Public Health. 

IDPH's data release shows there have now been 12 deaths and 39 total cases linked to nursing homes in the county. 

The cases come from three facilities and all of the additional cases and the additional death are being reported from an outbreak at an Oswego facility. 

In Kendall County, the highest outbreak remains at Symphony at the Tillers in Oswego. The seventh death at the facility was reported, up from six. Additionally, total cases moved from 21 to 30. 

Numbers at the two other facilities that had reported cases in Kendall County remained the same from the previous week. 

Three deaths and four cases of coronavirus have been reported at the Association for Individual Development in Yorkville. 

Hillside Rehab and Care Center in Yorkville has five reported cases and two deaths. 

As WSPY has previously reported, IDPH says data includes laboratory confirmed cases only and health officials say there is a lag because of time taken to receive and compile the data. The data also only shows, "outbreak data," which consists of clusters of two or more cases.

In surrounding counties, one case has been reported; an employee at DeKalb County Rehab and Nursing Center. That information was released voluntarily by the DeKalb County Health Department, last week, as the amount falls below the state's "outbreak" reporting minimum. 

In LaSalle County, two more deaths and four additional cases were tied to Aperion Care in Marseilles, this week. There have now been six deaths and 37 cases at that facility. 

Kane County has had cases reported at 24 facilities, with the largest death outbreak remaining at Bria of Geneva where there have been 112 cases and 24 deaths.

However, Symphony of Orchard Valley in Aurora has now reported 114 cases and 14 deaths. The highest case total in the county is at Tower Hill Health Care Center in South Elgin, a facility which has had 117 cases and 14 deaths.
