200+ still hospitalized with COVID in the region
From MWHC--COVID hospitalizations at Stafford and Mary Washington Hospitals as of 10 a.m. today. We are over capacity in our medical/surgical wards and ICUs. You will notice that our fully vaccinated patients are now colored blue to better differentiate them from patients who have received booster shots. All but 6 of the full vaccinated patients were eligible for boosters and haven’t received them yet. Getting a booster is the best protection against severe COVID-19 infection.
As a reminder, if you are in need of a COVID-19 test and are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms, please do not come to the emergency room. Use an alternate testing site such as local pharmacies or urgent care locations. Find test sites near you: https://www.vdh.virginia.gov/…/protec…/covid-19-testing/.
