Todd PittengerAugust 23, 2021

There have been 3 new COVID deaths in Saline County and 35 new cases.

According to the Saline County Health Department,  COVID-19 has taken the lives of three additional members of our community since the last update on Friday, bringing the number of confirmed COVID-19 deaths to 131.

The Saline County Health Department staff is actively monitoring 530 cases of COVID-19.

Salina Regional Health Center reports they currently have 19 patients who require hospitalization for COVID-19.

There has been a total of 7126 confirmed cases, and at least 6465 people have recovered from COVID-19.

The best way to stop the spread of COVID-19 and thus prevent mutation of the virus is:

  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Get tested if you feel unwell, even if you don’t believe it is COVID.

You can find testing centers at or contact your local medical provider.

  • Get vaccinated.

You can find a vaccine at or contact your local medical provider.

  • Wear a mask, especially if you are not fully vaccinated. If you are fully vaccinated, wear a mask when in-doors in crowded spaces.
  • Maintain at least 6 feet of distance between yourself and those with whom you do not live.
  • Do not travel to “hot spots.”

• If you test positive, isolate immediately and be open and honest with COVID caseworkers about your contacts.
