    I know our dpt. of health has obscured data on their dashboard recently, but The NY Times shows some big Covid increases. Average daily Covid deaths are up 115% over 2 weeks ago. PCR positivity looks to be about 11%. Children’s hospital is swamped with ill children, some of which have confirmed Covid currently. And observationally, I know a ton of families sick with Covid now, like with the first Omicron wave. Although this time most of them aren’t included in any official counts thanks to home testing. Anyway, anyone at risk of serious disease or death might want to consider personal protective measures and develop a plan of action with their physicians for when they do get sick.

      Children’s isn’t seeing high covid cases in patients. Other respiratory viruses are causing a surge in ER visits (happens with back to school).  Also, a lot of the ER capacity issues are due to mental/behavior health problems in patients.  Children’s employees (myself) have all been informed about these issues and are updated weekly. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
