11/19/2021

(KAIR)--57 cases of COVID-19 are confirmed in Jefferson County.  

That number, recorded over a 10 day period ending Monday, is up from 34 active cases as reported November 10.  

Word of the increase was delivered Monday to the Jefferson County Commission by Jefferson County Health Department Administrator Crystal VanHoutan during the Commission’s weekly meeting. At that time, VanHoutan explained that Jefferson County’s percent positivity for the last reporting period stood at 6.6%. That’s down from the previous reporting period due to what the unofficial minutes of Monday’s meeting says is “more testing than the previous reporting period.”  

VanHoutan told Commissioner’s 658 coronavirus booster shots were administered during the health department’s drive thru clinic, held November 10.  

According to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, as of Monday, Jefferson County has had 2,687 cases of the coronavirus since the beginning of the pandemic.
