COVID-19 Update - March 19th
COVID-19 in Calhoun County
Throughout the month of March, the county has continued to see a decreased number of new cases per week, hospitalizations, and positivity rate. This is a great sign, but does not allow us to let down our guard as a community. We need to continue practicing the recommendations of the CDC to help keep the spread of COVID-19 to a minimum.
Wear Your mask.
Keep your distance.
Together we can make a difference.

Thank you for your continued patience during this vaccine roll out. As the EMA, we continue to work alongside our community partners to assist them in any ways necessary to get the vaccines out.
