Local Hospitals Need Your Help to Decrease Hospitalizations
Fall and winter are typically the busiest time for our Rock County hospitals, as there are many community members who need inpatient care for seasonal illnesses like influenza, chronic conditions, injuries, and emergencies. Currently, local hospitals have reported Emergency Department activity that is nearly double what it was this time last year. Our health systems, which are still able to provide quality care, but are very near or at capacity on a daily basis, need the community’s help. The best way to thank our health care heroes and help our community is to stay as healthy as you can. For recommendations on how to do this, read the full press release or watch our 12/9/2021 media briefing

Wearing cloth face coverings is an effective way to slow the spread of the virus that causes
COVID-19. The virus can easily spread from person to person through speaking, coughing,
sneezing - even in those that are exhibiting no symptoms. The primary transmission is
through respiratory droplets, and transmission typically occurs in the first seven days after
infection, even when people are asymptomatic. So that means that if you’re infectious, you
probably won’t know it. So we should all assume that we are potentially infectious to
people around us. Cloth face coverings create a simple barrier to help prevent respiratory
droplets from traveling into the air and onto other people when the person wearing the
cloth face covering coughs, sneezes, talks, or raises their voice.
