COVID-19 Cases and Hospitalizations Back At “Pre-Holiday Levels”

According to County Executive Marc Elrich’s weekly message, new data shows a decrease across the board in new cases and hospitalizations due to the virus. “We are back to pre-holiday levels.”

Per Marc Elrich, “There is also positive information to share about the vaccine. A new study by the Centers for Disease Control shows that using the latest COVID-19 vaccine helped increase protection against the disease by more than 50 percent. It was effective against the now dominant strain of JN.1. The study could not determine how long that protection helps someone before the vaccine begins to wane.

This study is another good reason to seek out every vaccination you are eligible for because it is not too late in the flu season to protect yourself and your family from all respiratory illnesses.”
