September 24, 2021 –After several weeks of surges in COVID hospitalizations and reaching capacity, Henry Community Health welcomed the downward trend of COVID hospitalizations this week.
HCH started the week with a total census of 45 patients and 14 were COVID+. All 14 patients were unvaccinated. As the week has progressed, we saw a downward trend and are ending the week with a census of 35 with 6 COVID+ patients. Out of the 6 COVID+s, 5 are unvaccinated. We have had 3 COVID deaths this week.
Although the trend is heading in the right direction, we ask the community to exercise the best defense against this virus and get vaccinated. Patients can walk-in to Immediate Care at Northfield Park Mon-Fri 8-5 to receive their COVID-19 vaccine. You can also take other measures to mitigate the risk of exposure such as wearing a mask, washing your hands regularly, and social distancing.
If you are experiencing COVID symptoms, free testing is available by registering online at ourshot.in.gov or by calling 211. If you are COVID positive and experiencing symptoms, contact your primary care provider.
