Due to the rising number of COVID-19 hospitalizations in Escambia County hospitals, Escambia County has relaunched the COVID-19 dashboard.
Currently, local hospitalizations in Escambia County stand at 104, with two citizens under the age of 18. The CDC has reported zero deaths from the Omicron variant in Escambia County.
“As we mentioned previously, we will reimplement the COVID-19 dashboard if local hospitalizations reach 50 or higher,” said Escambia County Public Safety Director Eric Gilmore. “Unfortunately, we have reached over 100 hospitalizations in a quick time frame. We are going to continue to monitor the local hospitalizations daily, as well as provide weekly updates to the death count provided by the CDC. Our hope is that we see this number drop below 50 again very soon.”
