Hello Reidsville citizens, this is Mayor Jay Donecker calling you with our bi-weekly COVID-19 update.  In Rockingham County infection numbers have held steady with a 7.3% positive test rate for COVID-19. This past week, there have been 218 new cases which is higher than the previous week and 2 more deaths reported. In Rockingham County, 46 % of us have received two doses of vaccine.  This means that for every two people you meet in public one is not fully vaccinated.  Because of this, when in public indoor spaces please wear a mask. 

 

For those 5 years of age or older needing to be vaccinated, you or your caregiver can go to the Rockingham County Health Department website www.co.rockingham.nc.us, to find a vaccine provider near you. Vaccines are available at our local pharmacies, satellite clinics and through Cone Health.

 

For those fully vaccinated, thank you for doing your part to keep our community safe and please ask a loved one who isn’t vaccinated to get vaccinated.   

 

If you have “flu-like” symptoms and are unvaccinated, please self-quarantine at home and get tested. For COVID-19 testing information, please go to the Rockingham County Health Department or Cone Health websites.
