Attorney General Says Health Departments’ Denials of Zip Code IDs of Coronavirus Patients Deserves Further Departmental Explanation

When both the McHenry and Lake County Health Departments of Public Health used the Federal health care privacy law to defend its refusal to tell the public where Coronavirus patients lived because it could lead to someone discovering their identities, I thought the excuse so illogical (had to change my original word), I appealed to the Attorney General’s Office.

The Public Access Bureau of the Illinois Attorney General has decided that the McHenry and Lake County Health Departments’ denials of the zip codes of the Covid-19 virus patients deserve further explanation than was originally provided.

Here’s the finding:


Attorney General Says Health Departments’ Denials of Zip Code IDs of Coronavirus Patients Deserves Further Departmental Explanation — 54 Comments

  1. Who cares?

    There’s are 46 confirmed cases in McHenry County.


    It’s here.

    It’s everywhere.

    Assume you’re have it.

    Assume everyone you come in contact has it.

    In another 2-3 weeks it’s going to be even worse.

    This effort to figure out the zip codes is so dumb.

    It’s all over the place.

    Stay home.

    Wash hands.

  2. My sunshine blogger making us proud again with a real-time, full display on how real journalism is done. I will go ahead and call this lack-of-transparency fiasco what it is: “Zip-code-gate”. And you haven’t seen anything yet as my sunshine blogger is just warming up the engines on this. Compassionate conservative republikkklans on this sunshine blog know a thing or two about changing the subject to deflect any blame away from our six-times-bankrupt, sexual-assaulter-in-chief and this is no exception. We really need to go after the municipalities, subdivision, street name, home numbers, race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, socio-economic level, and occupation of those affected by this virus designed by the Democrats, the deep state, China, and all those who hate tronald dump. Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, hug your neighbor, tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeeoooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww…

  3. Ohon says the virus is “here, everywhere”.


    Data from the government of our own State and many other States shows that there are significant amount of counties with zero reported cases.

  4. Oh on? Don’t be a moron. There is no such thing! I am hugely disappointed in Cal posting counteless memes of the fake virus on every single post. you are helping Satan’s lies, Cal.

  5. Don’t let this crisis go to waste.

    The most important thing is that we protect the future citizens of your Potemkin Villages from the ravages of pathogens in those Public Schools. Home Schooling and Distance Learning should be the new norm now.

    Your still on-board the ‘it’s for the kids” thingy, right?

  6. Oh hey Cindy!! I’m glad to see that you’re off of your meds again. You really need to up your lithium levels.

  7. Wait thill the net goes down for an extended period on April first, and then continue to lambaste Cindy. She’s been right so far.

  8. Exactly.

    It’s in every zip code.

    Get over it and just stay out of the way.

  9. **Wait thill the net goes down for an extended period on April first, and then continue to lambaste Cindy. She’s been right so far.**

    LOL – she’s been right about nothing.

  10. Thank you Mr Skinner for the FOIA request on this and asking the right folks for a better explanation.

    Yes, we know “its here”…I’m always under the belief, the more information about a problem the better for a solution, or slowing down the problem until one is found.

    This silence from authorities speaks beyond just not releasing zip codes.

    Its a matter of Trust.

    Carry on Sir.

  11. There is no data that establishes its nowhere. You can be asymptomatic or you can have a a cough or sore throat and have it.

    Until we have testing, Bread Winner, you can’t make that claim.

    Back to my point. It’s here and growing so why do you need a zip code?

    I46 confirmed cases today.

    That number will go up later when more people get tested and more test results come back.

    This is a dumb effort.

    Assume you have it.

  12. couldn’t they tell people the Street name?

    No one would need to know the exact address

  13. I find nothing wrong with trying to identify where the virus is roosting…why are so many people so critical of an effort to inform.

    And yes, I’ll bet the Health Departments are found to be wrong in not providing the information in the first place….just more governmental bureaucracy which is so unnecessary.

  14. Per U.S. Government website on HIPPA rules and guidance

    “Serious Threat to Health or Safety. Covered entities may disclose protected health information that they believe is necessary to prevent or lessen a serious and imminent threat to a person or the public, when such disclosure is made to someone they believe can prevent or lessen the threat (including the target of the threat). Covered entities may also disclose to law enforcement if the information is needed to identify or apprehend an escapee or violent criminal.”

    Words: “lessen a serious or imminent threat” are significant in the HIPPA law.

    New York City has the most cases per any geographic area in our Nation. It has been well publicized for many reasons including warning people to not go there. The publicity about it keeps people away and “lessens a serious and imminent threat” of catching the Virus.

  15. Jim Bishop – it’s roasting all across McHenry County. Hope that helps!

  16. Jimmy B., your ex-Partner Callas, isn’t too keen on your ‘insights’. I wonder why that is

    How about a breakdown of supposed victims by age, gender (or transgender), and race? Is that too much to ask?

  17. David Chapman, if you go to check out the streets involved on a sightseeing spree, please take angel w/ you, and Underwood, she’s supposed to be a real fine nurse. Bring Underwood’s girlfriend(s) too, like AOC.

  18. I heard there’s a ‘community outbreak’ in Woodstock, on the police frequency.

    What’s up now?

  19. The prophetic signs of Christ’s return continue at a rapid pace. The Corona virus is an interesting development in light of some very specific prophecies concerning the emergence of “crowns” (Corona) after a specific “Trump” event. The prophetic hits just keep coming. The following article has been updated to reveal the Hale-Bopp comet’s prophetic connection to the year 2017, a “Trump” and three “crowns” (Corona). When one understands the very peculiar trek or route this comet took on it’s travel in the heavens, one can then understand that this comet was one of the most dramatic prophetic signs to emerge in history. It is the prophetic sign that keeps on giving – right on up to the Corona virus itself.

    Considering that Wuhan, China is the place of origin of the Corona virus, it should cause everyone to sit up and take notice. It appears to be a prophetic sign of the soon fulfillment of a well-known prophecy found in Revelation 6. The words “Crown” and “Corona” should be setting off your alarm bells.

  20. Go after the criminal that has been clamoring about this pandemic for a couple years.

    Bill Gates!

    Why don’t they call the virus Bill & Melinda Gates Virus?

    The same prick that ran a corona virus pandemic exercise 2 months before the outbreak began.

    The same ******* that funds the WHO, GAVI, CEPI, and various other vaccine-pushing entities.

    The same man that put up $52 million for the development of a vaccine for corona virus.

    The same man responsible for the bio-metric ID program. ID2020, his plan to chip, track, trace, vaccinate and monitor the vaccine status of every human being on the planet.

    The PREP Act gives him and all manufacturers of the coming vaccines, full immunity from any and all liability in the future.

  21. I would love to see our fake news MSM call Putin a racist because he is protecting his people and him telling the Western degenerates and Asiatic hordes all to go **** off.

  22. Farrier? What you can’t handle is the real reason they are doing all of this. You will NOT be told anything of any substance. You will continue to be told lies and more lies. This is big-time serious coverup of the agenda they are carrying out. Your country is GONE! It doesn’t matter what country you once called home. It is GONE. You are NOW living in the new world order. Next up is the “papers please” martial law lockdowns you will be ushered through in this state. You can thank all the idiots that went right along with Agenda 21. You are now living in it.

  23. Protect yourselves and your family and pray for those on the front lines.

    My nephew is a doctor on the front line in a big hospital in England and it is getting worse and worse.

    Time to ignore the “crazies” and be smart.

    I’m a conspiracy guy but this is real for everyone and deadly for our most vulnerable.

    Be smart, pray and we will endure.

    This is the greatest country on Earth and we will prevail.

  24. What a great waste of people time.

    There aren’t even enough test for people.

    So most of they feel sick are told to stay home.


  25. CP nobody’s saying people aren’t dying.

    But the govts reaction is totally misplaced.

    How many would die in the same period last year from various upper respiratory infections?

    Is it a bioweapon or not?

    The nation was chumped by the Anthrax ‘attack’ in 2001.

    The Anthrax was weaponized and came from Ft Detrick!

    Did you said forget that?

  26. You are still programmed to accept all the lies. Your country is GONE> There is no greatest country in the world. The world IS ONE country NOW. You are in the beast system and you still refuse to use your own common sense! Anyone that claims it is horrific at ANY medical facility anywhere is a liar or a fool or both. I have FAMILY members that work in a major hospital satellite in another state and they have seen NO ONE with anything more than a headache or sniffles (and they are panicky over it). I have FAMILY that are EMT and firefighters in this state and three others. NO ONE IS SICK! No one knows anyone that has the fake disease and no one knows anyone that has died from the fake disease. You are spreading the false lies when you tell stories like that “nephew” garbage. The only ones that will prevail are those that have the protection of God while Satan’s minions cull the herd.
    Salty language warning: but this is very enlightening for the dummies

  27. God forgive you for the ignorant garbage that spews from you.

    You will have to answer for your lies.

    Everything is not a conspiracy. I do not believe everything from my government but I do believe my family.

    How you can sit there and churn out your infantile bullshit sickens me.

    I hope God forgives you because I’m struggling with it.

    BTW, my nephew works in a hospital in Birmingham, England.

    He is a specialist or consultant as they call it in respiratory illness.

    I think I believe him more than I do you.

  28. **CP nobody’s saying people aren’t dying.**

    Uhh… Cindy is.

    **But the govts reaction is totally misplaced.**

    Sigh… you really don’t understand how dangerous c-19 is. Just look at the charts – look at the exponential growth of this virus.

    Ignore the BS Cindy is spouting, and look at the actual facts and data.

  29. The Chinese Virus is real and is making people sick, requiring hospitalizations and resulting in deaths in the U.S. and around the world.

    With regards to ordinary flu, the U.S. CDC shows these data for the 2017-2018 flu season:

    Deaths 61,099
    Hospitalizations 808,129
    Medical Visits 20,731,323

    All ages 35,520,883 (31,323,881, 44,995,691) 16,520,350 (14,322,767, 21,203,231) 490,561 (387,283, 766,472) 34,157 (26,339, 52,664)
    Table 2: Estimated rates of influenza-associated disease outcomes, per 100,000, by age group — United States, 2018-2019 influenza season Illness rate Medical visit rate Hospitalization rate Mortality rate

  30. For all the religious nut jobs, the patron saint of pandemics is St. Corona.


    The U.S. government’s foremost infection disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, says the U.S. will certainly have “millions of cases” of COVID-19 and more than 100,000 deaths.

    As the U.S. tops the world in reported infections from the new coronavirus, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases predicts 100,000-200,000 deaths from the outbreak in the U.S.

  32. bred? You are a complete fool. Where are you getting all this info you keep shouting about? Do you personally know even one person that is sick? We are supposed to believe your expertise that a fake thing is real because you say so? Give us all the credentials. NOT the fake news reports that you follow so diligently. Show us the bodies. Show us the real victims. Show us the science behind wireus theory that is real. There is NONE. Meanwhile, you are helping Satan when you foment his lies. That is fine for you to choose evil for yourself, but you are doing great harm to OTHERS that could be dumb enough to even listen to the crap you shovel! (ie: The infirm of mind like Alabama.)

  33. LOL – don’t worry. I don’t listen to anything bred says, so you don’t have to worry about me.

    I can read the science on my own and figure out how very very wrong you are.

  34. Of course satan is 100% correct; until we see the bodies, there is nothing to believe. You think I believe for a second the lie of the Holocaust? And before you get started, all those pictures and footage of concentration camps are good, all-fashioned 1940’s photoshop tricks. Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, hug your neighbor, tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeeoooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww…

  35. I note that the article does not give the number of flu deaths this year.

  36. At least Alabama has a sense of humor. Still wrong. Still doesn’t have a clue where to look for the truth, still thinks science is somehwere to look to find truth but, well…

  37. Cindy, FYI – my nephew is in intensive care with the Corona virus.

    It is very scary and has shaken our family to the core.

    However, I will continue to pray for you…

  38. I don’t believe you, Cecil. Why would you waste your prayers on me if your nephew is in such need? You are a goofball!

  39. Give it a rest “Cindy”.

    This Andrew Coffey driving around McCormick Place on a Sunday, looking for trucks like was used in a movie was at best premature. The McCormick Place plan was only announced on Saturday, and the shots WLS-TV shot whenever are the same ones Coffey shot on Sunday.

    The article says the plan was to convert McCormick Place into a 3,000-bed hospital, not that the work had started.

  40. They haven’t started work on McCormick Place yet so the obvious conclusion is that there is no virus.

    It’s all fake and the entire world and it’s scientists, media and governments are conducting the biggest hoax in mankind’s history.

  41. Cindy, I really don’t care if you believe me or not.

    The Lord does not put a limit on prayers.

    I pray for your ignorance.

    I pray for the people around you affected by your ignorance.

  42. Cal, I read 46,000 from regular influenza this year (not sure if they mean this flu season, which I think would start in October, or just from Jan 1).

    I’ve seen some estimates slightly higher than that.

    This has been considered a worse flu season than usual, though not an outlier from the stats I see.

    For those of you who read Eileen’s comment about Cindy and lithium and if you into conspiracy theories, lithium actually IS used in mood stabilizing drugs.

    Afghanistan has been compared to being lithium rich like Saudi Arabia is oil rich.

    A lot of people think we’re still in Afghanistan to guard lithium, gold, and opium, not because of the actions of a bunch of CIA trained Saudis 19 years ago.

    World War 2 lasted about 6 years.
