This week, Williamson Medical Center continued to see a lower number of hospitalizations than we saw earlier in the year, with total hospitalizations holding steady week-over-week. 

Because COVID-19 continues to have a significant health impact on many people, particularly those who are immunocompromised, have pre-existing conditions and/or have other risk factors, Williamson Medical Center strongly urges the community to get vaccinated and receive your booster shot when eligible. Continuing to wear masks when traveling and/or in large indoor gatherings is also encouraged as a way to protect not only yourself, but those in our community who are at a higher risk of hospitalization should they contract COVID-19.
