‘Positive news,’ Johns Creek mayor says on COVID rate: report


JOHNS CREEK – Johns Creek Mayor Mike Bodker released his report on COVID-19 and immunization, calling the data trend “positive news.” He said Monday that rates of new diagnoses in Johns Creek, North Fulton and much of the Atlanta metro area were continually declining. As of October 22, the statewide seven-day moving average for new confirmed and suspected infections was 1,638, down more than 80% from the peak in late August.

“Many attribute the recent decrease in the number of new cases to the continued efforts of our residents and community members who are doing what it takes to stop the spread of the virus,” Bodker said in the report. “Throughout the pandemic, Johns Creek has almost always been the city with the fewest increases in incidence rate compared to our neighbors north of Fulton. “

He wants residents to remain cautious, especially as the holiday season approaches.

“I would ask everyone to use your best judgment for the overall safety of our community,” he said. “Please continue to make the right choice so that we can continue to reduce our numbers and stop the spread of the virus.”

The incidence rate drops by almost 40%

The incidence rate for the town of Johns Creek has fallen nearly 40% in the past 30 days, according to the report. Coronavirus cases, hospitalizations and deaths have all declined in Fulton County and Johns Creek.

In the last 14 days of the reporting cycle, according to the Fulton County Board of Health and the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH), the incidence rate in the town of Johns Creek fell to 99, a drop from 30 % over the previous 14 day reporting period.
