The Venice pop-up on Sunday is a state run site - so it covers:

- Persons 65 years of age and older;
- Health care personnel with direct patient contact;
- K-12 school employees 50 years of age and older

The governor is talking about lowering the age limit in Florida later this month.

Week over week cases declined by 17% in Sarasota County and 14.6% in Manatee County. The test positivity rates were basically unchanged in both counties. Testing declined in both counties.

Hospitalizations rose by 15% in Manatee County while rising by 6.7% in Sarasota County.

At first glance it would appear that the downtrend has restablished itself after last week's small increase - however ideally in a strong downtrend we would also like to see declines in the test positivity rates along with a decline in hospitalizations (which we didn't get this week). So just as last week I was not confident a new uptrend was starting - I cannot state with conviction that the downtrend is in full force again.

I would say if we get a decline in cases again next week along with a rise in hospitalizations and test positivity ratio - to me that would mean something would be suspect with the numbers (they are provided by the Florida Dept. of Health). I've noticed that the case numbers reported in the local newspapers and the FDH dashboard - are always higher then what's listed in their PDF file. For example on March 3rd the newspapers reported 98 new cases in Sarasota County and in the PDF file they "shaved off" 27 cases and reported 71 new cases (for March 3rd). So either the FDH is fudging the numbers to make it look better - or they they might have some system for claiming some of the original numbers weren't verified correctly.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hospitalizations
As per the state data-base that lists hospitalizations with a primary diagnosis of Covid-19:

Sarasota County:

*January 24th = 133.7 Covid-19 patients hospitalized
*January 31st = 111 Covid-19 patients hospitalized
* February 7th = 82.28 Covid-19 patients hospitalized
*February 14th = 60.00 Covid-19 patients hospitalized
*February 21st = 64.14 Covid-19 patients hospitalized
*February 28th = 59.57 Covid-19 patients hospitalized
*March 7th = 63.57 Covid-19 patients hospitalized

Manatee County:

*January 24th = 87.7 Covid-19 patients hospitalized
*January 31st = 79.14 Covid-19 patients hospitalized
*February 7th = 70.43 Covid-19 patients hospitalized
*February 14th = 58.28 Covid-19 patients hospitalized
*February 21st = 50.71 Covid-19 patients hospitalized
*February 28th = 54.28 Covid-19 patients hospitalized
*March 7th = 62.71 Covid-19 patients hospitalized

*I report hospitalizations as the seven day average.

I wonder if you can be put on their waiting list for last minute availability. I got mine last night from the Venice Airport pop up facility unexpectedly because they had 1500 doses they had to use ASAP and not enough people to give it to. So one of the nurses went to our church and asked the priest to announce it - right after mass, so it was good timing! A bunch of people quickly drove there to get the shot - anyone over 18 who showed up could get it in that situation since they needed to use it or throw it.

I would imagine you would have to be ready to show up in 10 minutes or less when you get the call.

Are you a school or child care worker in Manatee? Here’s some COVID vaccine options

https://www.bradenton.com/news/coron...249715433.html

The list of people eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine has expanded under recent state and federal guidance. However, the method of finding a vaccine depends on the person, especially when it comes to educators.

Spring Breakers Take Over Florida amid COVID Pandemic: 'We're Very Concerned,' Miami Beach Mayor Says

https://people.com/health/spring-bre...erns/?amp=true

Some warm-weather cities are worried that spring breakers could lead to new COVID-19 outbreaks, nearly a year after the onset of the pandemic cut 2020's spring break season short.

On Friday, Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber appeared on CNN's New Day and said the city is "very concerned" about vacationers, especially as Miami-Dade county averages more than 1,000 new COVID cases a day and different variants of virus continue to crop up.

"A lot of things are happening simultaneously," Gelber said. "You have the variant down here, and we still are having sometimes dozens of deaths a day in our county."

"And at the same time, we've got incredibly cheap round-trip tickets for 40 bucks from anywhere in the Northeast down here, discounted rooms and people who have been really pent up and wanting to get out with no other place to go than here," he continued. "So we are very worried that there's going to be a convergence of people here and a real problem in the aftermath of that."

CDC releases highly anticipated guidance for people fully vaccinated against Covid-19

https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2021/03/08/h...ted/index.html

New guidelines from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say people fully vaccinated against Covid-19 can safely visit with other vaccinated people and small groups of unvaccinated people in some circumstances, but there are still important safety precautions needed. The guidelines were announced at the White House COVID-19 Response Team briefing on Monday.
