Community leaders held a conference call on February 1 to coordinate and share information regarding the ongoing coronavirus situation.
Two Rivers Public Health Department reported they were thrilled with the case numbers for the week as positive cases slowed down quite a bit. They are not sure what reasons factor into the improvement, but there has been a downward trend in positive cases and hospitalizations in the area.
Over 7,000 first dose vaccines had been administered in the district at the time of the meeting. TRPHD is working with KCHS to get vaccines out to Kearney County residents, but there is frustration with the low number of vaccines they are receiving from the state. TRPHD started administering vaccines to Phase 1B recipients the previous week with approximately 1,000 vaccines administered to residents 65 and over.
