County reports 44 deaths now from coronavirus

By McPherson County Health Department
January 13, 2021

McPherson County Health Department recommends McPherson County remains in Phase 2 re-opening plans through January 25, 2021. Delaying moving to Phase 3 comes after careful consideration of hospitalization rates and while the testing positivity rate has decreased, it still remains high. These plans can be found on the McPherson County website,  mcphersoncountyks.us. 

COVID-19 Vaccine distribution is regulated at the federal and state level. There is little-to-no warning of when doses may be received at local health  departments at this time.

There is a statewide COVID-19 vaccination plan available on the KDHE COVID-19 website,  coronavirus.kdheks.gov.  There is also a graphic available that explains the anticipated vaccination availability schedule for Kansas on the KDHE COVID-19 website, under “Kansas  COVID-19 Vaccination Plan.”

MCHD will reach out to providers and entities as more information becomes available and as Kansas progresses through the vaccination phases. We do not know at this time if it will be readily available for the general public at MCHD, hospitals or doctor offices. Please continue to have patience with us as more information is passed down through the state. We do not have any control of when doses arrive or who they are prioritized for at this time and as soon as information is available, MCHD will make it public. 

KDHE and MCHD continue to mandate a 10-day quarantine for Kansans if you have done any of the following: 

• Attended/traveled to a mass gathering event out-of-state of 500 people or greater where individuals did not 6-foot distance and wear masks

• Traveled on a cruise ship or river cruise
