Tier 1A vaccinations
Madison County COVID update
On Dec. 28 Madison County had 34 residents in quarantine and 13 active coronavirus cases. Two individuals are currently hospitalized, one new since last week.
Madison County Public Health Nurse Melissa Brummell explained the decrease in numbers corresponds to a decrease in the number of people getting tests.
Both the Madison Valley and Ruby Valley Medical Centers have received 100 doses of the Moderna coronavirus vaccination and will begin and have begun distributing to tier 1A— frontline healthcare workers. The Montana State Public Health Lab will determine which part of the population will receive vaccines next.
Vaccines are currently for specific populations, Brummell said, not mass distribution.
