Weekly Video Briefing
Did you miss Thursday’s video briefing? County Health Officer Dr. Brendan Fitzsimmons provided an update on cases in the Sublette Center, Emily Ray talked about testing availability in the Rural Health Care District medical clinics, and Janna Lee of Sublette County Public Health gave a presentation explaining the new guidance on isolation and quarantine. The presentation also included information about the general stages of the disease, noting:
“Many do not realize that the first week is just generalized symptoms but about day 7 after your symptoms start is when the lung symptoms and risk of pneumonia begins & when some people start to get REALLY sick and need hospitalization.
“Many people do not know that they can feel fine but their oxygenation is in the 70s or 80s on the pulse oximeters (this is what we call Happy Hypoxics).
“Many people do not realize that your risk continues for almost an entire month. Because once you get through the first two weeks, then in the next two weeks some are at risk of the vasculitis and clotting risks which can be life threatening.”
The video briefing is posted below, as is Janna Lee’s slide show presentation.
