Madison County placed in “low risk” level for COVID

MADISON COUNTY – Madison County is finally in the green. Even though COVID-19 continues to cause issues in the Madison and Huntsville area, and health officials still wait to see if the recent Christmas holidays will cause a spike, the county was listed by the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) as being a low risk for the virus.

The ADPH releases a weekly chart showing where counties stand in relation to the rise in positive COVID cases. Madison County previously had been listed at a moderate risk level, along with Limestone County.

There was no change this week in Limestone’s risk level.

The ADPH reports there have been 4,616 new COVID-19 cases in Madison County over the past fourteen days. The daily number of cases peaked on Jan. 8 with 519, but has dropped since then. There were 285 new cases reported for Wednesday.

Limestone County had 1,031 new cases of COVID during the past fourteen days. They had three days during that time when new cases topped over 100, but they have also seen a decline with 62 new cases reported for Wednesday.

Healthcare workers on the front-line have been receiving the new COVID vaccinations. Last week, the ADPH announced the availability of vaccinations by appointment for people 75 and older and first responders. Those vaccinations begin Monday, although the state’s existing supply of the vaccine is inadequate for the eligible population.
