PRESS RELEASE Subject: COVID-19 Delta Variant

Date Sent: July 22, 2021

Trumbull County is starting to see an increase in daily COVID-19 case counts. The total number of cases over the last two days equaled our previous seven day case county of 18 cases. The bulk of these cases are occurring in the community and not congregate care settings.

Please be advised that the Delta variant is becoming more prevalent throughout the United States including Ohio. The Delta variant should be concerning for all individuals as it is more contagious than previous variants of the COVID-19 virus. It takes less of the Delta variant to spread from the mouth/nose of an infected person to another, non-infected person. It is a serious threat to those who are unvaccinated and Trumbull County’s vaccination rate still remains under 45%.

Getting the COVID-19 vaccine is the most effective way to prevent illness. The COVID-19 vaccines offer very high rates of protection against Delta hospitalization and death. While there are potential side effects from vaccination – just like there are for any antibiotic or other medication – those risks are small, indeed, compared to the risks of COVID-19 for people of any age. Remember, it takes up to 2 weeks to be fully protected against COVID-19 after the second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or the single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Therefore, it is important to get vaccinated now to protect yourself as the Delta variant continues to spread and we get closer to returning to indoor environments.

TCCHD continues to offer COVID-19 vaccine clinics at the Eastwood Mall in the former Lane Bryant, Unit #455, near center court next to Pandora and across from Auntie Anne’s on a weekly basis. Clinics will be every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00pm-7:00pm and the 1st and 3rd Saturdays in August from 1:00pm- 4:00pm. For those who receive their first dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or the single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at our vaccine clinics will be eligible to receive a $25 Eastwood Mall Gift Card.

The Warren City Health District will offer COVID-19 vaccine (Moderna) clinics at 258 E. Market St. (3rd floor), August 11th, 18th, and 25th. The hours will run both morning and afternoon from 9:00am to 11:00am then 1:00pm to 3:00pm. On August 22, 2021, from 12:00pm-5:00pm, the WCHD will offer COVID-19 vaccine at Perkins Park for a Back-to-School event. For the elderly, the disabled, and non-English speaking persons please dial 211 for Essential Community Services.

We are also encouraging those who are not yet vaccination to continue wearing a mask and practicing good hand hygiene and social distancing as much as possible.
