Community Counter

Community Counter is a volunteer initiative meant to suppress the spread of COVID-19 within the Chicagoland Jewish community. This site allows individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 to anonymously give information that will protect their friends and neighbors.

This information will indicate where a person with COVID-19 may have unintentionally exposed others before they knew they were sick. The notification system uses the principles of contact tracing in order to suppress further spread of the virus.  Community Counter is supported by the IDPH, Skokie Department of Public Health, CRC, Hatzalah, Refuah 311, and more.
