“We are hopeful that this trend will continue through the holidays,” she said. Kristy Quinn, marketing and public relations director for Baptist, said they are encouraged to see the number of hospitalizations decreasing. Beach said last year there was a very high increase of COVID-19 cases after Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s.

According to the Kentucky COVID-19 website, Hopkins County is now classified as orange with an incident rate of 22.4. An orange classification means there are between 10 and 25 average daily COVID-19 cases per 100,000 residents. The Health Department reported 113 new COVID-19 cases for the previous week, with 198 COVID-19 related deaths.

On Tuesday, Baptist Health Deaconess Madisonville reported they had 20 COVID-19 patients in the hospital, with 17 being unvaccinated and three being vaccinated. There were six COVID-19 patients in the Critical Care unit, all of them unvaccinated. “What will bring cases down is getting the unvaccinated, vaccinated,” she said.

Beach and Quinn said they are feeling hopeful for the decline in cases to continue, especially as the Pfizer vaccine for children aged five to 11 looks like it will be approved. “People are very confused about why this important because they understand that children seem to do better with this illness as far as not having as many serious effects, however, children often spread infection,” said Beach. “They touch more, and they historically have been pretty good spreaders of respiratory viruses.” “Hand hygiene is always a good idea and helps to prevent the spread of many illnesses,” said Quinn.

Quinn added that getting vaccinated is the most effective way to keep yourself and those around you safe during the holidays. She said if you chose to not get vaccinated or you know people around you are not vaccinated, then masking is still a great option to slow the spread. “Of course we are concerned about the holidays and get-togethers,” she said. “The more people that are vaccinated, the safer the holidays will be.”
