Delaware On High COVID 19 Alert

By: Tye Richmond

Once again, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has placed all three Delaware counties in its “high” category for community spread and is encouraging indoor mask use in public settings.

According to WDEL.com, “Delaware achieved the mark as each county exceeded 200 new COVID cases per 100,000 people in the past seven days and have more than 10 new hospitalizations per 100,000 people in the past seven days.”

“All three counties fell short of third metric — 10% amount of available inpatient beds being used by COVID patients, with New Castle at 5.2% and Kent and Sussex counties both at 6.4%.”

It continues to say, “As of Thursday, Delaware had 165 statewide COVID hospitalizations, which is more than the number of hospitalizations seen during the May Omicron surge and most since Valentine’s Day. Twelve of the current cases are considered critical.”

With COVID-19 still on high alert in state and now cities all across the country declaring monkeypox a public health emergency, it is important that everybody stays safe and still be cautious like how we were when the pandemic was “ending”.
