BC's cases surpass 100K since start of pandemic”

Following the proven public health guidance to slow the spread of COVID-19 continues to be extremely important for everyone to do.

Sheridan County has experienced 31 deaths related to the virus.

There have been 10 new positive COVID-19 cases reported in Saline County since our last update on March 26, which brings the total number of positive cases for Saline County to 6,061.

Laramie County has the highest confirmed active case count in the state with 71 confirmed active cases, according to the WDH.

Note: As new COVID-19 cases continue in Montana, the disparity between state data from DPHHS and local data from county health departments also continues. The current average of 8.29 new cases per day is up from a low of just under seven new cases per day last week and down from a recent high of 71 cases per day in early January. Salina Regional Health Center has notified us that they now have one patient hospitalized battling COVID-19.

"The risk for all of us is too great, which means any of our usual travel and holiday weekend gatherings need to be put on hold this year", Henry and Dix said. Any residents with questions about COVID-19 or the vaccine interest form may call Douglas County's help line at 785-864-9000.

Over 100 people in Washington state have tested positive for COVID-19 more than two weeks after becoming fully vaccinated against the disease, officials said.

However, at least eight people with breakthrough cases have been hospitalized.

So far, 756,080 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca-SII COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in B.C., 87,351 of which are second doses.

"Right now, we are waiting on Health Canada's recommendations to determine what adjustments we may need to make to this immunization stream as a result of the safety signal for those under 55", they said.

As of Wednesday, about 5 million of the state's more than 7.6 million residents will be eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine.

Henry and Dix said those same frontline workers "remain a priority".

Health officials are reminding British Columbians to avoid all non-essential travel and to follow health guidelines.
