Let’s Continue Our Hard Work, Johns Creek!
Week over week, our city and community is improving in its efforts to combat the spread of coronavirus infections and it’s really making a difference. Once again, there was a marked decline in the overall Incidence Rate in Johns Creek and in the recent two week reporting period (3/6-3/19), there were fewer new cases of COVID-19 in Fulton County than the previous two weeks (2/20-3/5).
But we can’t rest or get too relaxed in our precautionary measures for keeping the infection rate down. I urge everyone to continue social distancing, avoiding anything but small gatherings, washing hands frequently, and wearing a mask when in public.
Johns Creek has seen a 32% decrease in transmission rates of COVID-19 over the past 14-day reporting period. Also, Johns Creek has one of the lowest Incidence Rate of all of the 15 cities in Fulton County. Let’s continue our hard work and keep that trend going.
Equally important is getting our community vaccinated.
The most recent coronavirus vaccine announcement from Governor Brian Kemp stated that beginning March 25, 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.
