RILEY COUNTY VACCINATION

(RILEY COUNTY, KS – June 9, 2021) Riley County has identified 20 new positive Coronavirus cases and 62 additional recoveries since the last report on June 2, 2021. 

The percent of positive cases for the week of May 30 was 3.4%. That translates to 15 of the 442 tests performed coming back positive. 

Four COVID-positive patients are currently under care at Ascension Via Christi Hospital in Manhattan. Two patients are in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). 

The Riley County Health Department is currently tracking several outbreaks throughout the area including some involving USD 383 sports teams. Specific information regarding the outbreaks can be found on the KDHE website under the cluster summary where you can sort by county  https://www.coronavirus.kdheks.gov/160/COVID-19-in-Kansas

“These recent outbreaks illustrate the importance of getting vaccinated. We are encouraging parents to not only get themselves vaccinated but remind them that children 12 and older are also eligible. While USD 383 is continuing to work with the health department in mitigation efforts we are asking parents of those involved in the outbreaks to be open and honest with Health Department contract tracers. This will allow us to attempt to reduce the risk of this outbreak spreading further,” said Riley County Local Health Officer Julie Gibbs.
