Stay Smart, Stay Safe, and Get Vaccinated!
Today’s COVID-19 Update marks the eighth month we have reported on the important data behind the state of the coronavirus in our community. Over that time we have seen both the rise and fall of infection rates in Johns Creek as we have battled against a deadly virus that has changed the way we think about everyday life. I am proud of the small improvements our residents have made over the past several weeks as our efforts have somewhat stabilized the spread of the virus.
The data shows that over the past two weeks, while we had a modest overall increase in the Incidence Rate in Johns Creek (for the two week reporting period from 3/20 – 4/2), there was also an overall decline in new cases of COVID-19 in Fulton County than the previous two weeks (3/6 – 3/19).
I still need to point out the slight increase (a 6% increase in Johns Creek) in the city’s transmission rates of COVID-19 over the past 14-day reporting period. Even with one of the lowest Incidence Rate of all of the 15 cities in Fulton County, we need to stay safe and continue to practice social distancing, avoiding anything but small gatherings, washing hands frequently, and wearing a mask when in public. We can’t afford to return to January or February infection rates.
Let’s support our community getting vaccinated.
All Georgians age 16 and over are eligible to receive the vaccine. And there are a number of ways you and your family members can sign up to get the vaccine. COVID-19 vaccines can protect you and your family. The vaccines are safe and offered at no charge.
