CV)--The Garfield County Health Department and area medical volunteers held the second COVID-19 vaccination event at Stride Bank Center on Monday. It was the first such event designed to serve area residents 65 and older. An earlier event was staged at Stride Bank Center on Dec. 31, for health care workers and first responders. That event administered 720 doses of the vaccine. Monday’s vaccination drive was specifically staged for people 65 and older, and was designed to be by appointment only. The 1,200 available appointments were filled within an hour of the drive being posted on social media. Officials said future events will be announced also through local media outlets, and appointments will be taken by phone, in addition to the link provided on the Garfield County Health Department Facebook page. Sign-up for new appointments next Monday will be available at 1:00 p.m. Wednesday. When the new appointments are opened, reservations to receive the vaccine, for people older than 65, can be made on the Garfield County Health Department Facebook page or by calling (580) 233-0650. Appointments then will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis, for those 65 and older.

IC)--In person learning resumed at Enid Public Schools today. Masks and social distancing protocol will continue to be required on campus. In December, the Enid School Board decided to hold in person class as long as the school has enough faculty and staff to run the campus effectively, and has under a 30% threshold of student, faculty and staff being positive cases plus quarantines. This plan was created to get the vast majority of students back in in-person instruction. Parents can still opt for straight virtual learning as an option.
