Today’s headlines:

  • A little-known program has been providing food, income assistance or help with housing to Illinoisans quarantining due to COVID-19 for the last seven months.

  • Thousands gathered in downtown Champaign on Saturday to see the first parade of lights since the COVID-19 pandemic began. 

  • Champaign Mayor Deb Feinen lit a menorah Sunday night in front of the city’s public library as a part of Hanukkah, an eight-day day holiday celebrated by the Jewish community.

  • The Fighting Illini men’s basketball team will face Notre Dame in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge at State Farm Center in Champaign Monday night.

In today’s deep dive, we’ll take a closer look at court-ordered guardianship, or a conservatorship. Some states allow less-restrictive alternatives, but, many aren’t aware of those options.

217 Today is produced by Farrah Anderson. Reporting today contributed by Hannah Meisel, Reginald Hardwick and Carter Barrett.

COVID-19 is a rapidly evolving story, and we are working hard to bring you the most up-to-date information. We recommend checking the Coronavirus Information Center for the most recent numbers and guidance.
