“The activity at the emergency room is still up, but with COVID activity from Tuesday to Tuesday, we only had three COVID patients in our emergency room who were treated and sent home, and one that was admitted,” Ulrich said. “And we have no COVID inpatients right now, in the hospital.”
Jim Ulrich, CEO of York General Health Care Services, said state hospitalizations are also showing a downward trend, which is encouraging considering there are a lot of hospitalizations right now that are not COVID-related. During this week’s community sector briefing, Four Corners Director Laura McDougall said, “The good news is that the counts are still trending down from where we have been, we are still improving. The general trend is downward, which is good. Our peak was in September and this improvement continues. York County is looking better than it has been.”
“Our testing has gone down this last week also, as we did less than 30 tests with only three positives,” Ulrich said, noting these figures do not count the tests they conduct at Willow Brook and the Hearthstone. The cases that have been reported in the last seven-day period are in all age groups.
