Township Elementary Districts Monitor COVID-19
The Northfield Township elementary district superintendents have developed draft metrics by which to monitor community health conditions. The dashboard is intended to help guide discussions with the Cook County Department of Public health to determine if there are deteriorating community health conditions that would warrant the proactive closure of schools as a mitigation strategy to contain the spread of COVID-19.
