UPDATE 4/30/2021 8:00 AM

Tucker County’s total case numbers are 533 confirmed positive cases since the beginning of this pandemic, 0 active cases, 524 that have recovered and 9 deaths.  Tucker County continues to have 0 known active cases of COVID-19 (recently, one case was reported to state that was later found to be negative and another one that was determined to be another county’s).

IF YOU HAVE NOT GOTTEN VACCINATED AND WANT TO BE, please contact the Tucker County Health Department, St. George Medical Clinic, Preston Taylor Mountain Top Clinic or one of our pharmacies, VACCINATIONS ARE STILL AVAILABLE. 

 

HAVE YOU BEEN FULLY VACCINATED?

In general, people are considered fully vaccinated:

  • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderns vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine

If you do not meet these requirements, you are NOT fully vaccinated. Keep taking all precautions until you are fully vaccinated.

 

BEING VACCINATED PROTECTS YOU AND OTHERS AND HAS OTHER BENEFITS. 

IF YOU HAVE BEEN FULLY VACCINATED:

  • You can gather indoors with fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart.
  • You can gather indoors with unvaccinated people of any age from one other household (for example, visiting with relatives who all live together) without masks or staying 6 feet apart, unless any of those people or anyone they live with has an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
  • You can gather or conduct activities outdoors without wearing a mask except in certain crowded settings and venues.
  • If you travel in the United States, you do not need to get tested before or after travel or self-quarantine after travel.

 

 

 

  • If you have been around someone who has COVID-19, you do not need to stay away from others or get tested unless you have symptoms. -However, if you live in a group setting (like a correctional or detention facility or group home) and are around someone who has COVID-19, you should still get tested, even if you don’t have symptoms.

 

YOU SHOULD STILL PROTECT YOURSELF AND OTHERS IN MANY SITUATIONS BY WEARING A MASK THAT FITS SNUGLY AGAINST THE SIDES OF YOUR FACE AND DOES NOT HAVE GAPS. TAKE THIS PRECAUTION WHENEVER YOU ARE:

-In indoor public settings.

-Gathering indoors with unvaccinated people (including children) from more than one other household.

-Visiting indoors with an unvaccinated person who is at increased risk of severe illness or death from COVID-19 or who lives with a person at increased risk.

UPDATE 4/22/2021 6:00 PM

Tucker County’s total case numbers are 533 confirmed positive cases since the beginning of this pandemic, 0 active cases, 524 that have recovered and 9 deaths.  For the first time in a long time, Tucker County has 0 known active cases of COVID-19. 

Last Friday was the Tucker County Community Covid-19 Vaccination Clinic’s final drive-thru clinic.   Due to the county’s high rate of vaccination and less demand for additional new doses, vaccination efforts have now been shifted to our county’s clinics and pharmacies.  If the demand increases, the drive-thru clinics would resume.

The Tucker County Health Department and Tucker County Office of Emergency Management would like to thank everyone that made the County’s Community Clinics a huge success.  Quickly, Tucker County led the state in vaccination rate and has continued to do so because of the joint effort of so many organizations and individuals.  The Tucker County OEM, Tucker County Health Department, St. George Medical Clinic and Preston Taylor Medical Clinic provided staff, supplies and countless hours to provide vaccinations to thousands of Tucker County residents.  The City of Parsons supplied staff and officers to work clinics, set up barricades and handle traffic flow.  The Parsons Volunteer Fire Department supplied the site, and their dedicated members were there early and stayed late, to provide set up, take down, and support in running each clinic.  McClain Printing, Tucker 911, Leadmine Cert, Tucker EMS, Tucker FRN and countless other volunteers were there supporting in every capacity to serve their fellow Tucker Countians.  A big thanks to Parsons Shop-n-Save, Siranni’s Café, Best of Canaan, and The Ice Cream Shop from Davis, who supported the clinics with food, beverages, and snacks. 

There was so much support for these clinics, we hope we did not leave anyone out.   A huge heartfelt thanks to each and every one who assisted in any way, from the firemen and law enforcement who worked out in the weather to the nurses who stood and gave shots for hours and the computer data entry crew who logged in every shot.  It took each one of you to accomplish this critical task.  Know that you are appreciated, and you made a difference.  Prior to vaccinations, our county’s active case number was in the 50-70 range, the past three days it has been 0.   It is not a coincidence, it the results of a job well done.  Also, one thanks that cannot go unsaid, is thanks to the residents of Tucker County.  Tucker County’s high vaccination rate is mainly because, Tucker County Residents have been willing to receive the vaccine.  Thank each of you for doing your part to take care of yourselves and your neighbors.  Once again, thanks to everyone for working together to do an amazing job.  This is the efforts of many and a great example of the positive things that can happen when a community comes together to help one another. 

If you have not gotten vaccinated and want to be, please contact the Tucker County Health Department, St. George Medical Clinic, Preston Taylor Mountain Top Clinic or one of our pharmacies, vaccinations are still available.

Tucker County COVID-19 Vaccination Update 1/21/2021

 

The COVID-19 vaccination process has been a rapid and a rapidly changing process.  At times, we are unable to release information, because it changes within minutes.

In the past two weeks, Gov. Jim Justice, the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources, and the West Virginia Joint Interagency Task Force for COVID-19 Vaccines choose to use regional vaccine clinics.  This was to try and vaccination West Virginians who are 65 years of age and older. Many clinics were listed as full as they utilized existing waitlists. All clinics required appointments and walk-ins were not accepted.  Tucker County Health Department, St. George Medical Clinic and Preston Taylor Mountain Top Clinic worked to try and get as many Tucker County Residents as possible into those clinics.  All three facilities have lists of residents seeking the vaccination and have tried to work down those lists as the opportunity for appointments became available.  There were very limited doses available for Tucker County Residents.

Our hope is that as vaccine becomes more readily available in the future, we will be able to set up large vaccination clinics in the county to serve our residents.  Currently, the biggest obstacle is that we simply do not have the vaccine at this time.

Rest assured that collectively, TCHD, Tucker OEM, St. George Medical Clinic and Preston Taylor Mountain Top Clinic and all our county partners are prepared and ready to vaccinate our residents once vaccine becomes available and is distributed to us.  We will keep Tucker County Residents informed of this every changing response to this vaccination process as we are given more information.

At this time TCHD, will be pausing from taking additional names for the waiting list, due to possible changes in the coming days as to how we get residents scheduled and registered for future clinics.  We know this is a frustrating process, it is frustrating and challenging to us as well.  We ask you to please be patient and know that each of us are working to get vaccinations available to our residents as quickly as possible.

  1. I recently visited Tucker County. I had breakfast at The Sawmill on October 5th. NONE of the staff were wearing face masks. I traveled for three weeks through NC, TN, WV, and VA. This was the only business where I observed employees not wearing face masks. I felt vulnerable and could not enjoy my meal. Sincerely, Don Ross

  2. I am a 85 year old male and would like to get vaccinated when it is available. Can I get on a list to be notified when it is available.

  3. Hi,
    I frequently must visit Shop ‘n Save Express in Davis. I noticed multiple f times that employees in the back don’t wear a mask. Also, some customers do not wear a mask. I nicely spoke to my cashier about it. She kindly responded that it is not nothing that she can do because it is optional to wear a mask in WV.

    I was very surprised about it.

  4. My husband & I moved to tucker county 6mths ago. We are both 66 yrs old. Where can we get the covid vaccine?

  5. All day today I tried to call the number listed on yesterday’s post to get an appointment for COVID vaccinations at the Regional Vaccination Clinic in Randolph County on Thursday of this week. I called the number literally 65 times since 10:00am — and always got a busy signal or the call was just disconnected. The number answers now, but gives a message that its mailbox is full and then gives options about entering a last name, or dialing an extension or holding for an operator — NONE of which work. I’m 70 years old and am very eager to be vaccinated. What is the point of offering the option to call a number to make an appointment if it doesn’t work?

  6. Thank you, Mr. Snyder for your thoughtful email reply to my posting yesterday. Yeah, it’s really frustrating to keep dialing all day with no luck, but I do understand that the folks on the other side of the line are working as hard as they can to get vaccines into the arms of folks like me. I will TRY to be more patient!

  7. Question
    If we got our first dose, are we to report to the Phil Gainer Center in Elkins on the date printed on our card for our second dose? Or, should we wait to be notified about our appointment for our second dose?
    We are registered in the new system.
    Thank you so much
    ,
    Eileen

  8. Thank you so much for your efforts James. You have been so professional and open to those of us with questions. We are lucky to have you!
