Your COVID-19 update for Wednesday, January 5th:
________________________________________ 
WILLIAMSON COUNTY:
Confirmed Cases:  78,089 (up 1,058)
Total Probable Cases:  13,169
Deaths:  757 (unchanged)
________________________________________
1/5/2022
Williamson County now has a total of 78,089 confirmed cases and 757 deaths. 
1,058 new cases have been reported since yesterday. 
The rolling 7-day average incidence is164.29 per 100K people. 
12 cases were identified in QA and added to the cumulative total.
Williamson County and Cities Health District (WCCHD) is using the CDC Data Tracker for determining Gating Phases in Williamson County. The Phases are used to inform the public of the COVID-19 community transmission risk.
The Data Tracker can be accessed at www.wcchd.org/COVID-19 and provides an integrated, standardized view of key data for monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic in Williamson and the surrounding counties, and across the United States. 
The CDC Data Tracker looks at two numbers — total new cases and percent positivity — to determine the level of community transmission.
Total new cases refers to a county’s rate of new COVID-19 infections, reported over the past 7 days, per every 100,000 residents. To calculate this number, CDC divides the total number of new infections by the total population in that county. CDC multiplies this number by 100,000.
Percent positivity refers to the percentage of positive COVID-19 tests in a county over the past 7 days. This number is based on reports from states on a specific type of test known as a Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT). To calculate this number, CDC divides the number of positive tests by the total number of NAATs performed in that county. CDC multiplies this number by 100 to calculate the percentage of all tests that were positive.
Getting fully vaccinated is the most effective way to prevent COVID-19 infection. To find a vaccine location near you, visit www.vaccines.gov, or text your ZIP code to GETVAX (438829) in English or VACUNA (822862) in Spanish, or call 833-832-7067 for a referral to a local vaccine provider, or call WCCHD at 512-943-3600 for an appointment at our Public Health Centers.
