Let’s Stay Safe Johns Creek!
One year ago we had no idea what the COVID-19 pandemic would bring to our country, state and city. We have since lost friends and loved ones, changed our routines, adapted to new and challenging demands, and did what we needed to do to try and keep our community safe.
The sustained decline in the overall Incidence Rate in Johns Creek is a stark contrast to where we were a year ago, and also a positive improvement when compared to where the Incidence Rate was just three months ago at its peak. Today, the overall Incidence Rate has decreased to levels we haven’t seen since the end of last October. But only by continuing our critical efforts to ensure social distancing, avoid anything but small gatherings, wash hands frequently, and wear a mask when in public will we be able to address the spread of the virus.
Johns Creek has seen a 42% decrease in transmission rates of COVID-19 over the past 14-day reporting period. Johns Creek has the lowest Incidence Rate of all of the 15 cities in Fulton County and has been a leader in Incidence Rate reduction over the past 2-4 weeks. Stay focused and let’s continue to bring our numbers down even more!
The important next step is getting our community vaccinated.
Last week, Governor Kemp again expanded access to COVID-19 vaccines by allowing all residents of Georgia 55 and older access to the vaccine. Additionally, Georgia expanded vaccine access by including Pre-K thru 12 Educators & Staff; Adults with Intellectual & Development Disabilities & their Caregivers; Parents of Children with Complex Medical Conditions.
