With many area communities beginning to ease or end some COVID-19 Protection Protocols, an official with Cox Medical Center in Branson is cautioning people to stay mindful of personal responsibility in protecting them selves and those around them.
Lynne Yaggy, VP of Clinical Services at Cox Branson, says Taney County did see for the first time in several weeks an increase in the positivity rate for COIVD-19 and says people should be continuing to use preventative measures against the Virus.
Yaggy also says during Monday’s interview on KRZK’s “Ozarks First” program that currently around 20.5% of Taney County Residents and around 24% of Stone County Residents have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Cox is hosting a vaccination clinic at the Branson High School Activity Center this Wednesday from 8-2 with openings still available.
