GA DPH Northwest Health District

Dr. Gary Voccio, health director for the ten-county Georgia Department of Public Health Northwest Health District, updates us on COVID-19 in Northwest Georgia.

He also talks about counties with so-called “high transmission indicators” and what that means, why we’re concerned about increases in positive cases in the 20-39 age group that are being followed by increases in the 60-plus age group, new guidance for Long Term Care Facilities that might make it easier to visit friends and loved ones in those places, and the acknowledgement by the CDC that aerosolized transmission may be a factor in spreading the virus.
