Kathy Moore, Director of Public Health Muskegon County joins us today to talk about COVID-19 in Muskegon County for December 8th 2021.

The paper reports that we’ve returned to needing refrigerated outdoor storage for the deceased. Our numbers and 7 day average continues to go up with Delta leading the way. Omicron, it’s in Michigan, we ask for clarity on “we think” compared to “we know” when health professionals make estimations. The national map, where we thought things were easing up, things have turned in the wrong direction again. We talk about testing and now that at home tests are becoming more and more available, what to trust? Some have said they have intentionally gotten COVID like chicken pox, is this a good idea? Vax breakthrough and how they will continue to go up with more vaccinated but the % of severe cases needing hospitalization and death are substantially lower. How to interpret hospital capacity level. Percentages of those who have passed vaxed or unvaxed. Remarkably high numbers for Nov 21. Vaccination update and final thoughts as the holidays get closer.
