PMC reports rising cases following festival
June 2, 2022
Petersburg Medical Center staff discussed how a surge of COVID-19 cases in Petersburg has affected hospital operations and the community during its hospital board meeting last Thursday.
According to Dr. Selina Burt, over the past month the hospital has had to reshuffle its staff to cover shifts of those who had to stay at home with the virus, but that at this point operations are mostly back to normal.
PMC CEO Phil Hofstetter also reported that there has recently been "a little bit of an explosion" of COVID-19 cases in Petersburg following the Little Norway Festival two weeks ago.
