Long-term Care Statistics:  

As of Thursday, May 19, 2022, there have been a total of 3,890 positive COVID-19 cases involving long-term care residents, and 956 residents of Delaware long-term care facilities have died from complications related to COVID-19.  

Flu Update: 

DPH reminds the public that flu season is not over.  There were 126 laboratory-confirmed cases reported the week of May 8-May 14. As of May 20, 2022, the most recent date for which flu statistics are available. There have been 2,341 laboratory-confirmed cases for the current season, an increase of 633 since April 22, 2022. The cases involved 1,103 individuals from New Castle County, 518 from Kent County and 720 from Sussex County. This number reflects only the number of lab-confirmed cases; the actual number of cases circulating statewide is likely higher as not all people with the flu seek treatment, and many cases are diagnosed through rapid test kits in a provider’s office versus a lab. There may be technical discrepancies in reporting numbers week to week due to retroactive reporting of cases.

All individuals 6 months and older may still get vaccinated against the flu if they haven’t already. Flu vaccines are available at pharmacies (including those in grocery stores), participating medical provider offices, Federally Qualified Health Centers (for their patients), as well as Division of Public Health clinics. DPH is also advising the public that the flu vaccine can be administered at the same time as the COVID-19 vaccine.

May Is Viral Hepatitis Awareness Month; May 19 Hepatitis Testing Day

Dover (May 4, 2022) – The Division of Public Health (DPH) is announcing May as Viral Hepatitis Awareness Month and May 19 as Hepatitis Testing Day. There are several different viruses that can cause hepatitis. The most common type of viral hepatitis are hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C. Both hepatitis A and hepatitis B are preventable with vaccines and while there is no vaccine for hepatitis C, it is curable with proper treatment. Hepatitis B and C are the leading causes of liver cancer in the United States.  The only way to know if you have a viral hepatitis is to get tested. 

It is estimated that 2.4 million people in the United States are living with hepatitis C and between 880,000 and 1.89 million people are living with hepatitis B. Many are unaware that they are infected since symptoms usually are slow to present themselves. The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests everyone should get tested for viral hepatitis at least once in their lives. Some of the risk factors for contracting viral hepatitis include but are not limited to:  

  • Individuals born between 1945 and 1965 
  • IV drug users 
  • Unstable housing 
  • Travel to an area with endemic hepatitis A virus without being immunized 
  • Unprotected sex with multiple partners 
  • Job that exposes you to human blood 

“The Viral Hepatitis Program has been hard at work to build up the program’s outreach, prevention, and surveillance measures over the past year,” said DPH Treatment Program Administrator for the Viral Hepatitis and Vaccine Preventable Disease Programs Victoria Pyne, MA.  “Viral hepatitis is preventable and DPH’s viral hepatitis team is making efforts to raise awareness of the issue and encourage people to get tested at least once, as well as getting vaccinated for hepatitis A and hepatitis B.  Without testing, undiagnosed and untreated cases can lead to significant health complications. During Viral Hepatitis Awareness Month, we encourage people to get tested, learn the risks, and help the prevent the spread of viral hepatitis.”

For greater detail on the risk factors and disease information on each form of viral hepatitis, you can visit the CDC website:

  • Total breakthrough deaths: 191

 

A breakthrough case is defined as testing positive for COVID-19 after an individual has been fully vaccinated for two weeks or more.

COVID-19 Variant Cases in Delaware:   

Of the samples collected during the week of Jan. 7 – Jan. 13, the Omicron variant represented 97.4% of cases sequenced for a variant of concern, variant of interest, or variant being monitored. The remaining 2.6% of sequenced cases were identified as Delta. 

As a reminder, DPH is now providing variant data based on sample collection date rather than sequencing date, due to the length of time between sample collection (when a person is tested) and when samples are sequenced by laboratories, which can be lagged by two weeks or longer. This will more accurately reflect the proportion of specific variants that are circulating in the community at various points in time. 

The Delaware Public Health Laboratory and other laboratories regularly monitor for the presence of COVID-19 variants, including Delta and Omicron, through routine genomic sequencing of test specimens. Genome sequencing is a public health surveillance tool used to monitor the prevalence of COVID-19 variants; it is not used to diagnose individuals with a specific strain of COVID-19, as treatment recommendations do not differ based on variant strains. COVID-19 tests identify current infection of COVID-19, but do not identify a specific variant of the virus the individual might have. 

Long-term Care Statistics:  

As of Thursday, Jan. 27, there have been a total of 3,045 positive COVID-19 cases involving long-term care residents, and 896 residents of Delaware long-term care facilities have died from complications related to COVID-19.  

Flu Update:

There were 12 laboratory-confirmed cases reported the week of Jan. 16 – Jan. 22. As of Jan. 22, 2022, the most recent date for which flu statistics are available, there have been 607 laboratory-confirmed cases for the current season. The cases involved 423 individuals from New Castle County, 79 from Kent County and 105 from Sussex County. This number reflects only the number of lab-confirmed cases; the actual number of cases circulating statewide is likely higher as not all people with the flu seek treatment, and many cases are diagnosed through rapid test kits in a provider’s office versus a lab. 

All individuals 6 months and older are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated against the flu if they haven’t already. Flu vaccines are available at pharmacies (including those in grocery stores), participating medical provider offices, Federally Qualified Health Centers (for their patients), as well as Division of Public Health clinics. DPH is also advising the public that the flu vaccine can be administered at the same time as the COVID-19 vaccine.

DPH Announces Walk-In Hours for COVID-19 Vaccines at 5 Public Health Clinics

DOVER (April 28, 2021) – The Division of Public Health (DPH) is announcing walk-in hours at five of its public health clinics for those interested in getting a COVID-19 vaccination.

The new vaccination walk-up clinics, which started this week, are offering the Pfizer vaccine. No appointment is necessary. The clinics are open to any individual 16 years or older. Pfizer is the only vaccine currently FDA-approved to served individuals under the age of 18.

The clinics, located in Dover, Georgetown, Milford, Seaford, and Wilmington, are handicap-accessible and are located within walking distance of DART routes. Walk-in hours are 8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., and 1:15 p.m. – 4:00 p.m., Monday – Friday. Details can be found at de.gov/getmyvaccine.

As of Wednesday, April 28, a total of 400,635 Delaware residents have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and 281,013 have been fully vaccinated.

“We are truly excited to offer these new walk-in opportunities at our public health clinics as a way to both increase access and reduce barriers to getting vaccinated,” said DPH Director Dr. Karyl Rattay. “These sites help us reach more Delawareans in the communities where they live, and the walk-in option provides a measure of convenience for people who have challenges with scheduling or who may decide on a whim that this is the day they want to get vaccinated. We want to be able to accommodate that.”

The walk-up opportunities at these five clinics will make accessing the vaccine easier for younger people who may lack transportation and other individuals who may have had a harder time making it to large-scale vaccination events.

DPH encourages everyone, particularly families with high school and college-aged students, to take advantage of these walk-up opportunities ahead of graduation, vacation and the summer season.

“The more individuals who are 16 and older that we can fully vaccinate, the sooner we can all get back to doing the things we enjoy most,” said Dr. Rattay. “Getting our youth and their families vaccinated will allow more opportunities to get together with loved ones and friends and take advantage of summer activities.”

As of Wednesday, April 28, 5.4% of the state’s 16-17-year-old population have been fully vaccinated, while 15.9% of the state’s 18-34-year-old population have been fully vaccinated.

The Public Health clinic locations offering walk-in COVID-19 vaccination hours are:

New Castle County:

• Porter Public Health Clinic, 509 W. 8th St., 2nd floor, Wilmington

Kent County:

• Williams Public Health Clinic, 805 River Road, Dover
• Riverwalk Public Health Clinic, 253 NE Front St., Milford

Sussex County:

• Adams Public Health Clinic, 546 S. Bedford St., Georgetown
• Shipley Public Health Clinic, 350 Virginia Ave., Seaford
