County Public Health Report ~ 9/05/23

The following is a recording of the presentation during the Public Health briefings at this week’s Board of County Commissioners meeting made by Jefferson and Clallam County Public Health Officer Dr. Allison Berry. Also Willie Bence, Director of Emergency Management, gave a report. The Peninsula Daily News quoted Dr. Berry: “This is not going back to 2020…I am not thinking we are going to overrun our hospitals.” Berry said COVID-19 levels were rising locally and across the national but that hospitalizations are still low; particularly among those who are up to date on their vaccines.
