Let's Stay Safe, Johns Creek!
Small improvements made over the past several weeks should not be a signal to let our guard down when it comes to combatting the spread of the coronavirus. Our efforts have somewhat stabilized over the past two weeks as we maintained a modest overall Incidence Rate leveling in Johns Creek (for the two week reporting period from 3/13-3/26), while there was a 20 percent decline in new cases of COVID-19 in Fulton County when compared to the previous two weeks (2/27-3/12).
What does show cause for greater concern is the slight increase (an 8% 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, Johns Creek cannot falter in staying ahead of further spread.
Please stay cautious and stay vigilant. We can’t afford to return to January or February infection rates and we must continue social distancing, avoiding anything but small gatherings, washing hands frequently, and wearing a mask when in public.
Let’s support our community getting vaccinated.
As you know 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.
