Saline County saw 100 claimed situations of COVID-19 in May possibly. In June, just underneath 300 conditions have been reported. As of this creating, there have currently been 130 described cases therefore far in July. It is crucial to continue to keep in thoughts that this usually means the amount of precise instances is possibly considerably greater. Although the wide greater part of scenarios are being successfully taken care of at property, Salina Regional is beginning to see a small uptick in hospitalizations. And regrettably, at least a few men and women misplaced their life to COVID past month.

Vaccines are free, safe and sound, efficient, and extensively accessible. Remaining up-to-day on your vaccinations gives a sizeable amount of protection. Individuals who are up-to-day are significantly less probably to be hospitalized or succumb to the virus, if they do contract COVID-19. Unfortunately, no vaccine is 100 per cent certain to prevent COVID.

No cost checks are out there at the Health and fitness Department and Salina Household Health and fitness Care Center. You can also purchase them on the net at COVID.gov/exams.
