TOP STORY: 4 new COVID-19 cases in Illinois; Gov. declares disaster proclamation

Illinois has four new cases of COVID-19.

Two of the new cases are female family members of a CPS employee that recently tested positive after a cruise vacation. Her infection prompted the closure of the school and the monitoring of students and staff, who have been asked to stay home until next week.

The third new case is a woman in her 50s who is from California. She traveled to Chicago to work at Cinespace Film Studios. The fourth case is a woman in her 70s, who returned from an Egyptian cruise earlier this month.

The new cases prompted Governor Pritzker to issue a disaster proclamation, which will provide federal funding.

So far, officials say there are no plans to cancel any large public gatherings including this weekend's Chicago St. Patrick's Day parade.
