“…All the COVID-19 patients we have in the hospital have not been vaccinated…”
Yesterday, a public health advisory in Henry County, Missouri:
….In response to the increase in positive COVID-19 patients in and around our county, Henry County Health Center (HCHC) is issuing a health advisory to all Henry County residents.
Craig Thompson, CEO at Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare (GVMH) reports an increase in the number of COVID-19 patients in the hospital, as well as an escalation in the number of people testing positive for the virus. “All the COVID-19 patients we have in the hospital have not been vaccinated,” said Thompson. “With the vaccine there is still a chance that you could contract the virus, but it could mean the difference between experiencing mild symptoms or a lengthy hospital stay.”
….It is the recommendation of HCHC and GVMH that those who have not received their vaccination become vaccinated as soon as possible.
HCHC recommends that residents continue to maintain social distancing, practice good hygiene, and continue wearing a mask in public if you are not fully vaccinated.
Here we are.
Wear a damn mask.
