COVID-19 Update

New PCR Cases

22*

1 Antigen Case as of Sept. 27, 2021

*11 of the 22 new PCR cases are past cases not reported to the health department due to a glitch in the state database.

We appreciate the millions of Missourians who are stepping up to protect themselves and others. Getting vaccinated is how we end this pandemic and move forward from this crisis.

Per the CDC, 44.6% of people in Lafayette County have initiated their first dose of their vaccine series. 39.5% of people in Lafayette County have been fully vaccinated, meaning they are two weeks post their second shot of either Pfizer or Moderna or two weeks post their first shot of J&J.

Confirmed Cases

LCHD Has Confirmed 3490 Cases to Date

There are currently 70 active cases and a total of 71 deaths. We currently have 16 hospitalizations. Our positivity rate, as of Sept. 23, 2021, is 9.11%.

Numbers of total cases reported at the state and federal level may show differently. This is due to data entry discrepancies in the state’s system and lag times entering them into the state database.

It is urgent that everyone use several layers of protection: Social distancing, mask wearing in public, avoiding unnecessary gatherings and exposures, proper hand hygiene, and sneeze/cough etiquette.
