Miami County Public Health COVID-19 Update

Posted on: January 15th, 2021 No Comments

Miami County – Miami County remains at a Red #3 COVID-19 risk level. This Red #3 COVID-19 Risk Level is due to Miami County meeting the criteria for 2 of the 7 Alert Indicators and continue to be listed as a High Incidence Area:

 

  • 50+ cases /100,000 population within last 2 weeks
  • Sustained increase in Emergency Department Visits for COVID-like illness

 

This risk level indicates very high exposure and spread of COVID-19. It is advised that community members limit activities as much as possible and follow all current health orders. Limit events over ten people and non-essential activities as much as possible. In addition to the 2 indicators met, Miami County is listed as a High Incidence area. Currently, Miami County is ranked 13th out of the 88 counties for highest case rate/100,000. Miami County will stay at a Red level #3 until we are no longer in the high incidence category.

For more information on the Public Health Advisory System visit: https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/covid-19/public-health-advisory-system/

 

Since January 1, 2021, there have been 1156 new cases which brings the total number of COVID-19 cases in Miami County to 8736, with 7780 confirmed cases and 956 probable cases, 435 hospitalizations and 73 deaths, with 7248 presumed recovered.

 

As Miami County moves into phase 1B vaccination efforts we are asking the community to please be patient. There is a very limited supply of COVID-19 vaccine and we are going as quickly as possible with the amount of vaccine available. Next week, Miami County Public Health will be providing vaccines for those individuals 80 and older. The following weeks additional age groups and specific populations will be added to the vaccination phase. Currently, registration is closed for next week as the schedule is full. Miami County Public Health will reopen registration once we receive the next week’s vaccine allocation amount from the state. Individuals must have an appointment to receive a vaccine, walk-ins are not permitted. The number of registrations and appointments are determined by the amount of vaccine MCPH receives. Early registration and future appointments for certain groups cannot be done at this time.

The tiered system for those eligible for the vaccine under phase 1B, begins with those who are 80 or older. Vaccination efforts will be based on this phase 1B schedule:

  • The week of Jan. 19: Ohioans 80 years of age and older.
  • The week of Jan. 25: Ohioans 75 years of age and older; those with severe congenital or developmental disorders.
  • The week of Feb. 1: Ohioans 70 years of age and older; employees of K-12 schools that wish to remain or return to in-person or hybrid models.
  • The week of Feb. 8: Ohioans 65 years of age and older.

 

When a new age group begins, vaccinations may not be complete for the previous age group. It will take a number of weeks to distribute all of the vaccine given the limited doses available. It is going to take time to get enough people vaccinated to begin to see an impact on the spread of COVID-19. Community members are encouraged to continue wearing masks or facial coverings, stay 6 feet from one another, washing hands frequently, and if you are sick, stay home and away from others as much as possible.
