McLean County announced five new cases Wednesday. The total confirmed cases for COVID-19 stands at 194. 

Out of the 194 cases, 111 have recovered, six have died, 10 are hospitalized and 67 are currently in home isolation. No new deaths were announced. 

An outbreak at a Bloomington nursing home has 46 out of the 194 cases. None of the five new cases announced Wednesday are related to the outbreak at the Bloomington Rehabilitation and Health Center. 

An increase of testing at the drive-thru site can also be a factor for the increase in cases. The Bloomington drive-thru testing site located at the Interstate Center will be open through Friday.
