Greetings to everyone in Johns Creek.
As we share the data surrounding the state of the coronavirus in Johns Creek and in Fulton County, it pains me to again report that case counts in the city and in the county are on the rise.
In the past two weeks (reporting weeks of 10/10 to 10/23) there were more new cases of COVID-19 in Fulton County than in the previous two weeks (reporting weeks of 9/26 to 10/9).
We cannot lose sight of what we all need to do to stop the spread of the coronavirus. I urge you to continue safe and healthy practices and follow the guidelines set by the Center for Disease Control.
- Practice social distancing
- Wash your hands often
- Disinfect frequently touched surfaces (including your phones)
- Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others
- Stay home if you are sick
Below you’ll find current data on COVID-19 Counts and Rates from the most (Dated October 30, 2020). In the table below, specific data for Johns Creek is highlighted for reference.
This reporting period shows Johns Creek remaining among the fewest total case counts of all the major cities in North Fulton County (as of 10/30/2020) with a slight increase in case count (4.4%) over a 14 day period. What is distressing is the trend over the selected period shows there is a 38.5% increase in new diagnoses between the 14 days (10/10 to 10/23) preceding the most recent 7 days and the 14 days preceding that (9/26 to 10/9). The last update I shared on October 19 only showed a 10.9% increase in new diagnoses – that was just two weeks ago. We need to do a better job at preventing illness by not risking exposure to and not transmitting this virus.
