Goodhue County has moved into the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) high community transmission rate for COVID-19.
According to the Goodhue County Health & Human Services the county has reached 100 new cases per 100,000 people over the last seven days or a 10% positive test rate over the past seven days.
Goodhue County continues to encourage community members to get vaccinated if they are unvaccinated or missing a second dose to minimize transmission.
The vaccine is still highly effective against COVID-19 and dramatically reduces hospitalizations and death. However, the Delta variant spreads very easily, and we are learning that vaccinated people can transmit the virus even if they do not have symptoms.
