4:30 p.m. Novant health COVID-19 Update: 

How is Novant Health prioritizing who receives a COVID 19 vaccine?

We are following the vaccine prioritization framework developed by the North Carolina COVID-19 Vaccine Advisory Team, which provides four vaccine administration phases. These phases are based on risk and anticipated supplies. We believe the framework reflects our commitment to diversity, inclusion and health equity.   

What team members are defined in phase 1A?

Phase 1A criteria (as defined by DHHS) includes healthcare workers at high risk for exposure to COVID-19—physicians, APPs, nurses, and all who interact and care for patients with COVID-19, including those who clean areas used by patients, and those giving vaccines to these workers.

How many vaccinations were administered?

Between Thursday, December 17 and Wednesday, December 23, Novant Health vaccinated approximately 5,500 team members. As of Wednesday, nearly 33% of Phase 1A team members have scheduled or received their first dose of the vaccine.  On average, we are vaccinating approximately 1000 team members per day but we anticipate that number will increase, as supply allows.

"Although we have begun to administer the long-awaited vaccine, this is a critical time for our healthcare systems and for our communities. It’s imperative our communities understand that we are not out of the woods yet with community spread at an all-time high."

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 23, 2020

6 p.m. According to the NCDHHS there are a total of 494,511 cases of COVID-19 in North Carolina as of Wednesday at 12 p.m. 

5:14 p.m. Guilford County Public Health receives a shipment of COVID-19 vaccine from modern. 2,000 doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine were received on Wednesday according to a release. 

The first Guilford County Division of Public Health employee was vaccinated today along with the first Emergency Services employee.

 Morenike Kritzer, Nurse Practitioner said, “I trust in the vaccine development process and while I’m excited to be the first Guilford County Division of Public Health employee to be vaccinated, I’m thankful that the vaccine is finally here for the community.” 

Jim Albright, Director, Guilford County Emergency Services said, “I’m happy to get this vaccine for me, my family, my co-workers, and my community”

They have been working in coordination with the Health department guidelines throughout the pandemic. Nash said the school is currently closed and they've done deep cleaning in the facility. 

"Our church has not held in-person-services since Mid March. We lift in prayer all who are affected by the pandemic, and in particular healing for those infected," said Nash.

Litter Thinkers daycare is also doing things the right way to make sure their children and staff are safe. 

“Little Thinkers is strictly adhering to Alamance County Health Department recommendations regarding masks, social distancing, hand washing, and sanitation so our children and staff remain safe and healthy,” said Roxanne Castille, Director of Little Thinkers Daycare.

MONDAY, DECEMBER 21, 2020

4:54 p.m. - U.S. Representative Mark Walker (R-N.C.) released the following statement regarding this evening’s votes in the House:

After being informed of a possible exposure to COVID-19, I have decided out of precaution to not travel by air to Washington this evening

However, I want to make sure the record is clear: As millions of Americans and their businesses suffer from a generational pandemic, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has repeatedly negotiated against their interests and held up aid for critical months. The result of her grandstanding and partisanship is a ‘too little, too late’ $600 check hidden within a thousand-page bill Congress has been asked to blindly pass without review. Thus, producing a bill that is flawed in both its content as well as its process. Given its impact, I can’t in good faith vote for legislation of this magnitude without first thoroughly examining its contents and how it affects North Carolinians and their futures. The text of this bill was released at 2pm. Speaker Pelosi won’t read it and much of her caucus will pass it by texting their vote in.”

3:51 p.m. - Alamance County Health Department has identified an outbreak at the long-term care facility Village of Brookwood Retirement Community in Burlington. 

Currently, nine cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed among six staff and three residents. Of the six staff members, three are residents of other counties and are not included in the Alamance County COVID-19 daily case count, but will be included on the biweekly Long-Term Care Facility (LTCF) report for NC DHHS. 

NC DHHS defines an outbreak as two laboratory-confirmed cases in a period of 28 days within a congregate living or long-term care facility.
