Resources & Surveys
To date, we have 278 responses which is getting closer to our goal of 400 responses. I am asking that each of you push out the survey once again to your clients, customers and/or staff and encourage them to take the survey. I am including both the QR code & the link for the survey along with the paragraph that we always include as we share it out.

QR code for our 2021 Community Perception Survey:

Paragraph with link: The Coalition for a Drug Free Batesville is currently requesting community members participate in the 2021 Community Perception Survey. This survey asks community members about their thoughts on a variety of topics around substance use and abuse. The Coalition then uses the results from this survey to look at what the community perception is on specific topics to allow them to create what their focus of work will be over the next year and beyond. Those who complete the survey will be put into a drawing for a $50 gift card if you choose to include your name and e-mail address at the completion of the survey. To take the survey go to: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RR7ZC82.

If we can each get 5 additional people to complete the survey, we will hit our goal. Additionally, if you have ideas or ways to further push it out community-wide, PLEASE send them my way!

Respectfully,

Kim Linkel, MLD, CPP, GPC

TOGETHER WE THRIVE - COVID-19 TOOLKIT
COVID-19 INDIANA - COUNTY GUIDELINES BY COLORED
The Indiana Department of Health has established a color-coded county map that measures weekly cases per 100,000 residents and the 7-day positivity rate for all tests completed. Each county is assigned a color based on the average of scores for the two metrics, and the map is updated each Wednesday at www.coronavirus.in.gov.

The Indiana Department of Health has provided the following guidelines to inform local decision-making. The guidelines should be used when counties are in yellow, orange or red status for at least 14 days. The state health commissioner may impose actions when a county is in red status for at least 14 days.

Communities should use the County Metrics Map to make decisions about their businesses, community and social activities.

Certain at-risk Indiana residents are now eligible to get the coronavirus vaccine.
COVID-19 Vaccine Availability

ur family of pharmacies has received a limited supply of the COVID-19 vaccine in select areas and our licensed health care professionals are partnering with federal and state agencies to administer the doses in accordance with each jurisdiction’s rollout plans.
