The City of Moscow continues to monitor COVID-19 concerns in the community
Currently, the surge in the COVID-19 Delta variant is of significant concern. In Moscow, wastewater tests continue to show increased concentrations of the Delta variant, which is spreading much faster than the original COVID-19 Alpha strain. In addition, the CDC has reported that those infected with the COVID-19 Delta variant are more likely to be hospitalized than patients infected with other variants, including the Alpha, Beta, and Gamma strains. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/variants/delta-variant.html
In support of Gritman Medical Center and our local healthcare systems, reducing the transmission of COVID-19, particularly the Delta variant, will ensure that our hospital can continue to care for those in need of their services without putting avoidable stress on the system.
Moscow Mayor Bill Lambert stated that he recognizes that some individuals have chosen not to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. In joining Governor Little’s urge for Idahoans to get vaccinated, Lambert stated, “I have chosen to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Given the impact of the COVID-19 Delta variant on our community and our health system and school system, I am encouraging those who have not been vaccinated to make the decision to get the shot now.”
Infections happen in only a small proportion of fully vaccinated people, even with the Delta variant. However, preliminary evidence suggests that fully vaccinated people who become infected with the Delta variant can spread the virus to others. To reduce their risk of becoming infected with the Delta variant and potentially spreading it to others, the CDC recommends that all people, including fully vaccinated people:
- Wear a mask in public indoor settings if they are in an area of substantial or high transmission.
- Fully vaccinated people might choose to mask regardless of the level of transmission. Particularly if they, or someone in their household, is immunocompromised or at increased risk for severe disease, or if someone in their household is unvaccinated. People at increased risk include older adults, those who have certain medical conditions, such as diabetes, overweight or obesity, and heart conditions.
- Get tested if experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
- If you came into close contact with someone with COVID-19, get tested 3-5 days after the date of your exposure and wear a mask in public indoor settings for 14 days after exposure or until a negative test result.
- Isolate if they have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 10 days or are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
