The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have four levels of community transmission for Covid-19 across the country–High, Substantial, Moderate, and Low. The general trend the past four weeks has been for transmission rates to slowly fall across Missouri. For the week of October 18th through 24th, there are now two counties with low transmission rates–Dade and Schuyler. 11 counties and St. Louis city now are considered to have a moderate rate of transmission, including Maries and Texas Counties. Pulaski County, which had been reduced down to the substantial transmission level, is now back up to a high transmission rate again. However, the good news is that there is progress being made in administering the Covid vaccine. 65.2 percent of the eligible population, which excludes children age 11 and under, are fully vaccinated. 55.2 percent of Pulaski County’s total population are fully vaccinated. 64.8 percent of the total population are reported to have received at least one dose of a Covid vaccine.
