CDC’s number of Kansas counties at the high COVID community level drops to zero, 12 at the average level

No Kansas county is at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s high level of COVID-19 communities as of Friday, up from four last week.

Two of the four counties that were at their highest last week are now in mid-level, while the other two are at their lowest.

This week, 12 Kansas counties are at community average, and Sedgwick County remains low for another week.

The CDC updates the metric every Thursday for U.S. counties and bases the assessment on the number of new cases and hospitalizations per 100,000 people (seven-day totals) and the percentage of staffed hospital beds occupied by COVID-positive patients (an average seven days).

Sedgwick County’s positive COVID test rate is up to 9%, up from 7.8% last week, according to data from the county health department. The rate takes into account the average of 14 days of positives recorded compared to the total number administered and does not include home tests and those not reported to the Sedgwick County Health Department.

There have been 146 positive tests reported to the county over the past seven days, and the highest reported in a single day was 33 cases on Feb. 13.

Sedgwick County remains at the Kansas Department of Health and Environment’s “substantial” COVID rate, meaning it reports 50 to 99 cases per 100,000 individuals. Twenty-four counties are at their highest rate this week, up from 18 last week.

Kansas’ bivalent COVID recall rate is just 15.8%. These counties have the lowest uptake

Protect yourself from COVID-19

To protect yourself from contracting the virus, the CDC recommends the following preventative measures:

  • Avoid physical contact with people who have tested positive or suspected cases of COVID-19

  • Wear a mask when needed

  • Keep physical distance when possible

If you start developing symptoms of the virus, get tested and see a doctor if necessary.

If you test positive for COVID-19, isolate yourself at home and wear a high-quality mask if you must be with others there.
