Delta Variant

Delta Variant Confirmed in PHS District
 
Public Health Solutions announces confirmation of the delta variant in at least eight COVID-19 positive
cases within the district. Laboratory results have confirmed the presence of the delta variant in three of
the five counties within the PHS district.
“This comes as no surprise as the delta variant is the most predominant strain circulating in our state
right now. This variant sweeps through a community like wildfire to dry kindling. It is highly transmittable
and it appears that it can cause more severe illness than previous variants identified,” Kim Showalter,
Health Director.
Currently, 41.8% of all individuals living in the PHS district are fully vaccinated. That represents 22,476
people. 52.5% of individuals ages 16 and over are now fully vaccinated across the district.
PHS continues to urge eligible residents in the district to become vaccinated. This is the best protection
against becoming severely ill if exposed to Covid-19. To find a vaccination site near you, please call
PHS at 402-826-3880.
