According to the last report from the Custer County Public Health Agency, issued at 8:30 yesterday morning, Custer County has had a total of 156 positive Covid cases since February and 2 deaths. Our 5-day case count was 5.
Public Health Director Dr. Brown tells us that those in Custer County who have received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine can rest assured that their second dose will be available as planned. Although we are not guaranteed the size or timing of the next shipment, Dr. Brown is holding the second half of the existing supply for those who have received their first dose and therefore require a second dose in order for the vaccine to be effective. The first-round vaccinations that are scheduled at Lange Hall today will still be administered. Scheduling will resume after more of the vaccine is delivered, but you can still sign up so that you will be in line at that time.
The Custer County Office of Emergency management is still hiring, with 4 temporary positions to assist in scheduling community members to receive the Moderna vaccine. You can find the link to more information about the positions and the application on their Facebook page.
