The general population appears desensitized to the threat, and individuals are not following CDC guidelines related to mask-wearing for unvaccinated persons or maintaining social distancing in crowdedindoor locations. Vaccinations have plateaued, and while most patients are unvaccinated, hospitals are seeing some breakthrough cases requiring advanced medical treatments.
COVID-19 patients account for approximately 14% of the relative demand placed on hospitals statewide and 16% of the relative demand in the southern region (confirmed and suspected/ total census). Some facilities are reporting increased hospital and ICU occupancy rates (at or above 90%); however, most of these patients are all-cause hospitalizations. Hospitals are not reporting shortages of ventilators, supplies, vaccines, or other therapeutics, although ICU and ventilator use is increasing.
To give some perspective, the state set a record high for hospitalized patients on Dec. 13 with 2,025 cases.
