UPDATES FROM INCIDENT COMMAND:
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%. Hospitalization rates have decreased by over 50% since
November with just under 1,600 hospitalized patients across the State
currently. At its height, Indiana had 3,400 hospitalized patients. Please
visit https://www.coronavirus.in.gov/2393.htm for additional information.
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
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.
