Hood River County COVID Uptick Not Leading To Hospitalization Increase

While Hood River County has seen an uptick in COVID-19 cases, there has not been a spike in cases leading to hospitalizations.  The County reported 99 COVID cases for the week that ended October 8, up from 60 the prior week.  County COVID-19 coordinator Daron Ryan says the County is following national trends in seeing fewer cases resulting in hospitalizations, a sign vaccinations are preventing serious conditions.  The County is starting to plan for when COVID vaccine shots are authorized for those five-to-11 years old, and for booster shots for the Moderna vaccine when they become available.
