Fifth COVID Death This Month Reported Monday


The Montgomery County Health Department reported another coronavirus-related death on Monday, Oct. 18, the fifth so far this month.

Transmission-wise, however, the spread of the virus has slowed this month.  As of Monday, Oct. 18, Montgomery County is averaging 7.6 new confirmed cases per day this month after averaging 15.0 new cases per day in September.  The 7.6 daily average for the first 18 days of October is slightly below the 8.3 daily average for the month of October 2020.

The local health department continues to offer all three vaccinations at their main office on Route 185 in Taylor Springs from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each Monday and Thursday.  All three vaccines are available (Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson).  Clinics are walk-in, but if curb-side service is needed, it is available.  Simply call the health department upon arrival (217-532-2001) and tell them you need a shot in your vehicle.
