Barren River District Health Department update on Covid-19

The following information is directly from the Barren River District Health Department.

 

"Although many people in the Barren River District have been vaccinated, the majority of the population remains unvaccinated. COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective at preventing severe illness and death. Vaccination also reduces the risk of people spreading the virus. The COVID-19 vaccine teaches your body how to fight off the virus in case you become infected. If you are vaccinated and you do catch the virus, you are much less likely to be hospitalized."

"According to data from the past seven days, all eight counties in the Barren River District are considered in the Red Zone for COVID-19 transmission. The Red Zone is considered critical, with average daily cases more than 25 per every 100,000 people. The seven-day incidence rate is calculated by taking the total number of cases in each county over the past seven days, divided by seven to get a daily average, divided by the U.S. census bureau county population and multiplied by 100,000 to get the incidence per 100,000 people. See incidence rates per data from the previous seven days for each district county below."
