County news

Delta variant confirmed in Lawrence County

 

(Lawrence County Health Dept., July 21, 2021) We are sad to report 2 additional deaths due to COVID-19. Our hearts go out to the family and friends of these loved ones.

Our cases continue to rise with no signs of slowing. We hope our residents see how serious our situation is. We need to start moving in a different direction. In order to do that we ask that you please consider vaccination if you haven't done so and are able. We also ask that if you are not vaccinated, or if you've initiated your vaccinations, to remember to take those additional precautions to protect yourself and others.

The Governor announced a new vaccination incentive program today. Starting in July, the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services will partner with the Missouri Lottery to draw 180 winners in 5 randomized drawings who will win either $10,000 cash or $10,000 towards an education savings account. In total, the state will award 900 individuals throughout the incentive program. Click here for more details https://covidvaccine.mo.gov/win/

 

(Lawrence County Health Dept., July 13, 2021) 97 additional cases have been added over the past 5 days. We are also reporting 3 additional deaths. Our hearts go out to the families of these loved ones.

We receive notification of new cases non stop at our office. It is safe to assume that actual numbers are higher because many people do not seek testing. Because of the overwhelming number of new cases we receive, it now impossible to contact those individuals within a day or two. If you have tested positive or have been exposed to someone who is positive here is a great resource on our website that talks about isolation and quarantine. Here is the link. http://www.lawrencecohealth.com/.../Home-isolation...

 

(Lawrence County Health Dept., June 29, 2021) We received confirmation late yesterday that the Delta variant is officially in our county.

Over the past 7 days, we have opened 117 new cases and we are still working on more that were received between yesterday and today. It is becoming a challenge again to keep up with the volume of cases, but we are doing our best to reach out in a timely manner.

We ask that you still consider getting vaccinated. You can call our office to schedule 417-466-2201 (we have both Moderna and J&J) or you can go to https://www.vaccines.gov/search/. You can put in the vaccine you are looking for and your zip code and it will list locations near you.

If you are not vaccinated, is important to continue to wear a mask, social distance, avoid large gatherings and wash your hands.

Damage in flood? Please let emergency management know

 

(Lawrence County Emergency Management, May 20, 2021) If you had any damage relate to this week's flood, send an email to lawemd@hotmail.com. Please include:

  • Full name

  • Address

  • Brief description of damage

  • Estimated cost of repair/replacement

 

Emergency management director Grant Selvey said as of right now, the flood doesn't qualify as a disaster but each report of damage gets us closer to that designation.
