Please self-report if you have any symptoms and encourage others to self-report so we can have the best information. We are using this data to help us track the virus through our community and to predict a potential surge on our healthcare system.
As of 4:30 PM, there were 3 patients who arrived at the ED with respiratory symptoms, one of them was admitted. There was an average of 37% capacity for the ED throughout the day. No patients worsened or were transferred today. 2 patients were discharged to recover at home. Currently there are 3 patients in beds, all with respiratory symptoms. One is amber and 2 are green. That is an average of 30% capacity for Med/Surg over the course of the day. Overall, 15 patients have been admitted with respiratory illness since the beginning of the incident.
-Green-stable, we are treating and hopeful to discharge to home in the next 24-48 hours.
-Amber-not-so-stable, symptoms are worsening and we are providing extra care for them, no discharge anticipation.
-Red-unstable, probably going to have to breath for them soon and likely going to transfer out or has transferred out to a higher level of care.

By the Numbers
As of 5:15 PM, we have 63 positive, 75 negative, and 53 pending tests. This document will be updated live with information.
The graph below is an adaptation from this morning’s graph. Instead of utilizing the logarithmic scale, we have set the larger magnitude data points to the right-hand axis and the smaller to the left. This shows that our self-reported symptom start date is dropping off, while our hospital impacts are ramping up.
The map reflects self-reporting and call center screening data that is merged to represent where we are seeing potential cases in the county.
