EVEN THOUGH THE PANDEMIC IS OVER, THERE ARE STILL NEW CASES OF COVID-19 BEING REPORTED EACH WEEK IN SIOUXLAND.

TYLER BROCK, DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF SIOUXLAND DISTRICT HEALTH, SAYS CASE NUMBERS HAVE GONE UP IN SIOUX CITY RECENTLY:

TYLER1 OC…….EVERYWHERE ELSE. :17

BROCK SAYS MOST OF THOSE CASES HAVE GENERALLY NOT BEEN VERY SEVERE:

TYLER2 OC………DIDN’T FOLLOW THAT. :19

HE SAYS THE INCREASING IN HOME TESTING MAY HAVE ALSO SKEWED THE NUMBER OF NEW CASES BEING REPORTED.

YOU CAN ALSO STILL GET A BOOSTER SHOT OR YOUR FIRST VACCINE DOSE IF YOU HAVEN’T HAD ONE YET:

TYLER3 OC……….FOR EVERYBODY. :22

NOW THERE’S A VACCINE FOR CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF FIVE.

BROCK SAYS THEY HAVE RECEIVED A COUPLE OF HUNDRED DOSES OF THAT VACCINE, AND SOME RESIDENTS HAVE BROUGHT THEIR YOUNG CHILDREN IN TO BE VACCINATED

TYLER4 OC…….IS BEST. :27

MEANWHILE BROCK SAYS FOR THE SECOND STRAIGHT YEAR SIOUXLAND HAD A MILD FLU SEASON. ALTHOUGH THERE WERE MORE CASES THIS YEAR THAN IN 2021.
