COVID-19 case rates continued to improve in the Three Rivers Health District over the past week, with only two to three cases reported per day for all 10 jurisdictions combined.
“Our environment is much safer at this time for everyone,” said Dr. Richard Williams, medical director for the district, in his weekly pandemic update.
About 58 percent of adults over 18 in the district have had at least one dose of the vaccine, he said, while over 80 percent of residents 65 and older have had at least one dose.
