WVBI COVID-19 Update for January 12, 2021

The second round of COVID-19 vaccines is set to come to the island on the 19th.  There is a fully booked schedule of 150 appointments for that date, including 25 for teachers at BICS.  Health Center Director Tammy Radionoff says there is another clinic planned for the end of the month. 

 

New COVID-19 data from the state continues to look good.  There were 4,536 new cases statewide for the two day period covered by the last report and 46 new deaths.  That’s 2,268 and 23 a day respectively.  The seven-day running average for new cases is up about 200 to 2,744.  For deaths it is 85—that number still being driven high by reclassifications that vastly outnumber new deaths. In the eight-county region we’ve followed from the start, there were 92 new cases and two new deaths. Charlevoix had eight of the new cases. 47 were in Grand Traverse. The deaths were in Antrim and Leelanau. Averages for the region are 58 new cases and one death a day.

 

Statewide there are now 119,232 active cases—down again this time by about 4,000.  Our region has 2,136—down by just about 100. 

 

Last reported average positivity rate statewide is at 9.4% down by half a point.  But it is up again in our safe start zone by almost a full point to 10.3%.  The rate in Charlevoix county is at 3.2%–up by about half a point. The C-D-C target is 3%.  Statewide and our safe start zone hospital occupancy reports continue to look good—no material change from yesterday. Locally, there is one COVID-19 patient at Munson Charlevoix in a regular bed—that after several days with no COVID patients there and the count is up two to ten at McLaren in Petoskey—all in their I-C-U. 

 

On the island, no testing update.  They have one test pending. No new positives since December 7th—so we are now at the point where—according to the state’s standards, there are no known active cases on the island.

Complete data for our region plus summaries for the state, the T-C safe start zone and the U-P are in today’s script online.
