Health officials are still learning about this new virus and information and guidance is rapidly evolving.  At this time, it is still unknown if a pregnant woman with COVID-19 can pass the virus to her fetus or baby during pregnancy or delivery.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, no infants born to mothers with COVID-19 have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.  In these cases, which are a small number, the virus was not found in samples of amniotic fluid or breastmilk.

Cases by county can be found on the IDPH website, as well as a list of local health departments who will have the most up-to-date information.
