The roller coaster of COVID cases continues in Nevada County even as restrictions continue to be eased regarding proof of vaccination or negative testing. County Public Information Officer Taylor Wolfe says the case rate was up a little from the previous week, but dramatically lower than the peak in early September. She also says the vaccination rate continues to grow- even if just a bit- as we get closer to the holiday season.
She says at 67.6% of eligible residents are fully vaccinated and children age 5-11 have been added to the list.
The county is setting up a clinic specifically for the new age group next Tuesday a from 2 to 5:30 PM at the Grass Valley Veterans Hall on South Auburn Street.
There will be fun activities and a calming corner for children as well as physicians on hand to answer any questions about the vaccine.
The clinic is by appointment and as of Monday, Wolfe says there has been good response. About half of the appointments were already filled through MyTurn.ca.gov.*
Yesterday another 69 cases were added to the Nevada County coronavirus dashboard with 194 cases considered active.
