The health department said area hospitals are close to or beyond capacity, and they are seeing more hospitalizations than ever, which is threatening standards of care and leading to longer wait times and decreased bed availability. Health officials said Jackson County’s COVID-19 weekly case rate has reached the highest level it has ever been — 1,203 cases per 100,000 people, and they said it is still rising.

“Everyone in Jackson County needs reliable access to emergency medical care — and that means we all need to respond to the crisis evolving in front of us. Hospitals aren’t alone in being affected by this surge; long-term care facilities, schools, and emergency services are all facing disruptions,” health officials said. The Jackson County Health Department released a letter to the community Friday calling the county’s COVID-19 situation “dire.”
