“In the last week, we have seen a 20% decrease in COVID-19 hospitalizations. That is great news, and it indicates we have passed the peak of the winter surge in southwest Georgia; however, it’s too early to celebrate.  We know Super Bowl parties, much like gatherings over the holidays, could lead to increased virus transmission, and we encourage people to enjoy the game responsibly. We also remain concerned about extremely contagious new variants of the virus, and we urge people to wear masks, avoid close contact with others and get vaccinated when eligible to prevent those variants from spreading rapidly in our area,” said Scott Steiner, Phoebe Putney Health System President and CEO. “So far, we have administered more than 20,000 COVID-19 vaccines, and we are committed to vaccinating as many southwest Georgians as possible, as quickly as possible. We continually monitor our vaccine supply throughout each day, and based on inventory projections, we have reduced the number of first dose appointments we have been scheduling. We appreciate the efforts of our federal and state partners to keep us supplied, and we hope to receive additional vaccine shipments soon,” Steiner added.
