The Hampshire County Health Department received 13 confirmed COVID-19 cases. Case investigation and contact tracing are ongoing.
Hampshire County’s current case count is 1719 confirmed (PCR and Rapid test combined), 21 active, 32 deaths and 1 hospitalization.
The Hampshire County Health Department was notified that the COVID-19 variant of concern (B.1.1.7) has been detected in a COVID-19 specimen from a resident of Hampshire County through routine public health surveillance.
This person was tested on 3-13-21 as random specimens are screened for the variant.
Current advice regarding this variant:
• Protect yourself and others against COVID-19 by wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet apart, avoiding crowds, washing your hands, and getting vaccinated when it’s available to you.
• These variants seem to spread more easily and quickly than other variants, which may lead to more cases of COVID-19. An increase in the number of cases will put more strain on health care resources, lead to more hospitalizations, and potentially more deaths.
• So far, studies suggest that antibodies generated through vaccination with currently authorized vaccines recognize these variants. This is being closely investigated and more studies are underway.
• Rigorous and increased compliance with public health mitigation strategies, such as vaccination, physical distancing, use of masks, hand hygiene, and isolation and quarantine, is essential to limit the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19 and protect public health.
If any WV resident would like COVID-19 vaccine, please call 304-496-9640 for an appointment.
