COVID cases are increasing rapidly throughout Clinton County and the SW Ohio Region. Clinton County currently has nearly 170 known Active Cases of the virus; On June 22, there were only 30 known Active Cases. There were 71 new known cases last week.
The CDC’s COVID Data Tracker listed Clinton County as “High” again this week with a case rate of 169.18 cases per 100,000 population over a period of 7 days. CDC recommends facial coverings for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals in indoor environments in “High” transmission counties. The use of a facial covering adds another layer of protection for those not vaccinated, especially those under the age of 12 who are not yet eligible for a COVID vaccination.
Public Health officials strongly encourage COVID vaccination to reduce the threat of severe illness or death from COVID infection. Through the end of August 2021, the Clinton County Health District (CCHD) will continue hosting Walk-In Clinics for COVID vaccinations on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons between 1-4 PM. All 3 brands of COVID vaccine are available while supplies last.
