As many of you have seen on our announcements, we are seeing some limited cases of vaccinated individuals testing positive for the COVID-19 Virus. This is by no means an indication that the vaccine is ineffective. Like the influenza vaccine, this vaccine may not prevent you from catching the virus, but will, at the very least, reduce the effects this virus may have on the individual contracting it. Below is a statement pulled directly from the CDC website that best explains the benefits of getting yourself, and your loved ones, vaccinated:

- All COVID-19 vaccines currently authorized in the United States are effective against COVID-19, including serious outcomes like severe disease, hospitalization, and death.

- Available evidence suggests the currently authorized mRNA COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna) provide protection against a variety of strains, including B.1.1.7 (originally identified in the United Kingdom) and B.1.351 (originally identified in South Africa). Other vaccines show reduced efficacy against B.1.351 but may still protect against severe disease. Continued monitoring of vaccine effectiveness against variants is needed.

- A growing body of evidence indicates that people fully vaccinated with an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna) are less likely to have asymptomatic infection or to transmit SARS-CoV-2 to others. Studies are underway to learn more about the benefits of Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine. However, the risk for SARS-CoV-2 infection in fully vaccinated people cannot be completely eliminated as long as there is continued community transmission of the virus.

As many of you are aware, we are currently experiencing a spike in Covid-19 cases in our County. As of Wednesday (June 30th) we were monitoring 33 cases within the county. Up from the 5-10 we've been experiencing over the last few months.

At the moment, a large portion of the cases are the result of an outbreak in a Nursing Facility in Advance. Unfortunately, we have just received notice of the death of one of the Covid-19 Positive residents. There are currently 9 residents and 5 staff who've tested positive for the Covid-19 Virus. For those of you wondering, most of these positives have been vaccinated within the last 6 months. We are working diligently with this facility, and they are taking all measures they can to prevent the further spread of the virus. Samples from each of the positive cases in the Nursing Facility have been sent to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Lab to determine which variant of Covid-19 we are dealing with. We are awaiting these test results.

Please be aware, Covid-19 is still present in our county and throughout the country. We know that numbers have decreased immensely since the Virus' peak back in the fall of last year, but it is just as important now as it was then, that everyone continue to practice the following safe distancing measures:

- Wear a Mask
- Stay 6 Feet Away from Others
- Wash Your Hands Often
- Get Vaccinated
- Clean and Disinfect
- Monitor Your Health (and the health of those in your household) Daily

Please be safe over this Holiday Weekend. We will continue to provide more information as it becomes available.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce a COVID-19 related death in Stoddard County. Our prayers go out to all affected by this loss.

The number of cases of COVID-19 we are seeing has most definitely decreased since the beginning of the year. However, it is still very much present in our day-to-day lives. For this reason, it is still of the utmost importance that you continue to practice Safe Distancing Measures. We ask that everyone please be smart, be safe and be considerate of others.

All across our Nation, steps have been taken to slow the spread of Coronavirus. Now, we must continue to take personal responsibility to protect ourselves, our loved ones and those around us. This is because, even though not all of us risk a severe case of the virus, we all risk getting the virus and spreading it to others - maybe without realizing we're sick. So, if we want to continue going to school, going to work, going to worship, and getting back to overall health, we should continue to practice Social Distancing measures, and take EXTRA precautions if you are at higher risk: WASH your hands frequently, STAY six feet from others when you can and WEAR face coverings in public when 'six feet distancing' may not be an option. These small actions will make a big difference!
