With 10 days left in Illinois' stay-at-home order, the state reported another rise in cases, lifting the total since the pandemic began to 31,508.
The number marks an additional 1,151 cases since Sunday.
Fifty-nine fatalities were also reported in the last 24 hours. The statewide death toll from the virus now sits at 1,349.
Almost all of Illinois' 102 counties are now reporting cases, with just seven having no cases so far.

The request comes as protests over the restrictions have taken place at state capitals, including a handful of people who demonstrated Sunday in Springfield.
Multiple suburbs in the Chicago area now require residents to cover their faces in public places. Meanwhile, some locations in the city and its suburbs have started postponing deadlines and even canceling summer camp programs.
