According to the latest information from the health department, it appears the larger numbers of new COVID cases in the health district in the last seven-day reporting period have been in Seward and York Counties.

The new COVID cases are reported to have occurred in all age groups.

While the latest surge in cases (between September and now) has been higher than seen over the other months of the past year, it still has not been as high as it was last November and December.

Vaccinations continue to be offered at the health department, as well as at local medical clinics and pharmacies.
