• Overall update: Incident Command has decreased to weekly meetings on Wednesday mornings. Shelby County has been designated as ORANGE in this week’s county color code advisory map based on the 7-day average of positive cases and rate of cases per 100,000. Shelby County’s positivity rate has decreased to 10.87% and the State’s positivity rate is now 8.1%.

  • MHP Vaccination Clinic: We are averaging 200 scheduled vaccination appointments per day. We continue to have a 5% “no show” rate. When that occurs, we call the eligible wait listed patients and give them the vaccine instead. A patient who “no shows” will have to reregister and get back in line in order to receive the vaccine.
  • Bamlanivimab "Bam” monoclonal drug for Covid treatment. We have infused 452 patients with this Eli Lilly monoclonal drug. The patients who have received this infusion are doing well. We have a sufficient supply of both Regeneron and Bamlanivimab for our current needs.
  • Emergency Department visitation: We are now limiting the Emergency Department visitation to one designated visitor per patient. The same visitation rules apply for surgery. If the patient is a pediatric patient, we allow a maximum of two designated visitors per patient.
  • Nursing Homes: Locally, nursing home resident outbreaks have ceased. Residents are starting to receive their 2nd round of the vaccine this week and next week.
