The Audrain County Health Department is issuing a health advisory to unvaccinated individuals.
In a release sent out this (Wednesday) afternoon the Audrain County Health Department says the advisory is being issued due the recent rise in positive COVID-19 numbers in Audrain County and the state of Missouri, for those adults and children aged 12 years and older who have not received the COVID-19 vaccination.
In 2 weeks time Audrain County has seen a five-fold increase in the number of COVID-19 positive cases according to the health department.
Currently 27 percent of Audrain County residents are fully vaccinated according to Audrain County Health Department CEO Craig Brace.
The health advisory is in effect from July 14th until August 14th.
