COVID-19 cases on the rise in Brown County.

(KNZA)--COVID-19 cases are on the rise in Brown County.

That word came Wednesday from the Brown County office of Northeast Kansas Multi-County Health, which reported 25 active cases. That's up from 10 active cases on Monday.

On Friday, the health department reported the number of active cases had climbed to 31. 

A total of six variant cases have been reported in the county—four of those being the more  contagious delta variant.

The health department said 35 percent of eligible Brown County residents 12 years of age and older have been completely vaccinated.

The CDC has an updated breakdown of Brown County's vaccination rate. The CDC reports that Brown County has a vaccination rate of 54.7% for the population of 12 years and older. That significant rise in percentage is due to federal programs that received the vaccines directly from the federal government and not directly from the state of Kansas.

The Brown County Health Department continues to offer vaccine for those 12 years and up. You can call 785-742-2505 to make an appointment.
