Albany, Ga. – As of noon Monday, these were Phoebe’s COVID-19 numbers:

  • Total COVID-19 Patients in Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital – 50
  • Total COVID-19 Patients in Phoebe Sumter Medical Center – 4
  • Total COVID-19 Patients in Phoebe Worth Medical Center – 0
  • Total Inpatients Recovered – 464
  • Total Positive Deaths from Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital – 108
  • Total Positive Deaths from Phoebe Sumter – 32

“Based on an increase in COVID-19 activity throughout Georgia and revised guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we will be re-instituting mandatory temperature checks and screening questions for patients and visitors entering all Phoebe facilities beginning Tuesday morning. We continue to require everyone to wear masks in our hospitals, clinics and offices, and we encourage everyone to mask up anytime they are in public. During our COVID-19 downturn in June, only 6% of the COVID-19 tests administered by Phoebe came back positive. That rate has increased to 11% so far in July, a clear indication that transmission of the virus is picking up in our area, and we urge everyone to take proper precautions,” said Scott Steiner, Phoebe Putney Health System Chief Executive Officer.
