Monday a.m. – What you need to know

Santa Rosa County had another COVID-19 related death, bringing the total to 4. Escambia County yesterday an increase of 14 positive cases, total 224 and now has 29 cases in its long-term care facilities.

Statewide the cases are approaching 20K, death total: 461.

According to  specimen collection spreadsheet sent out by Escambia EOC yesterday, the local testing facilities and hospitals has collected specimens from 5,607 people as of Saturday, April 11.  Of those specimens, the hospitals and clinic have received  3,634 results, leaving 35.2% pending.   The positive results are running 6% – a little less than half the state percentage.

After telling Inweekly that the EOC only does a SitRep– a detailed situation report by emergency support function (ESF)–when the ESFs have new information, the EOC changed its position and told the media yesterday: “Moving forward there will be a daily SITREP.”    Read 4-12-2020 1245 hrs SITREP.

Inweekly has requested that the County Administrator Janice Gilley do daily press briefs.  Such briefings have been standard operating procedure for the county’s EOC whenever it has been activated…until now.  We have not received a reply.

The Wall St. Journal has reported that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is expected this week to issue directives for nursing homes and other to elder-care facilities to share more information about coronavirus cases with residents, staff and family members.
