We are seeing about double the choice of instances that have been being reported a few month in the past, stated Dr. Wilma Wooten, County public well being officer on Tuesday.

And after weeks of day-to-day positivity percentages soaring round 1%, that curve has been on a gradual incline since June 15.
The area’s reopening is an element within the build up in instances, county well being officers say, as is the comfortable masks coverage and up to date Fourth of July shuttle and gatherings.

“Now there’s a vaccine available, but the people coming to see us are largely unvaccinated and they’re younger, in their 20s and 30s, coming into the hospital with COVID pneumonia,” Sarvis stated. “We’re mindful that we’re not where we were, we’re grateful we’re not there, but we don’t want to see us come back to that.”
Sarvis stated the wintry weather surge was once a hard time for healthcare staff.
“I think all of us are recovering slowly from the past year. It was very scarring to work through the pandemic and see the rapid condition from sort of OK to very, very ill, to even dying in a short period of time,” stated Sarvis.
