Reno County is in the Yellow Zone for the week of 5/3/21, this is the second week in a row in the Yellow Zone. Please note, the PTR and the cases have steadily increased, however, the testing rate is very low, so the New Case Count per 100,000 is what we are looking at for Gating Metrics. Recommendations from the RCHD and the Medical Collaborative regarding Covid-19 include the following mitigating measures, social distance by more than 6 ft., wash hands frequently, wear a mask, stay home when you are sick, and get vaccinated. If you are sick you may get tested through your provider or the Free Community Testing site. Log on to https://www.gogettested.com/ for more information and directions as to how to sign up. This Week’s Data: Prior Data: 14 Day PTR – 4/26– 11.7% 14 Day PTR - 4/19– 17.3% 14 Day New Case - 4/19– 62 14 Day New Case-4/19- 63 We are encouraging students over 16 to be vaccinated, they would not be excluded from end of year activities if they were exposed to Covid-19, as we would consider them immune for 6 months after they are 2 weeks post fully vaccinated. We encourage parents and students to consider this option. Kansas is now vaccinating individuals 16 – up, vaccines do need to be age appropriate for the individual (Pfizer 16 yrs. and up, Moderna is for 18 yrs. and up). You may go to https://vaccinefinder.org/ and find locations that have the brand you are looking for. Reno County Health Dept. is scheduling appointments and walk-ins or go online and visit the Hutchinson Clinic, Dillon’s pharmacies, Walmart or The Medicine Shoppe for availability.
