HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Reno County has crossed the 65% number if you add together the overall case count since the beginning of the pandemic and the number of people vaccinated.

According to Wednesday's case count dashboard, there have been 10,338 cases thus far and 30,302 people have gotten at least one shot. Those two numbers together are 40,640 of 62,450 or just over 65%.

The actual number of people with some type of immunity is likely slightly different than that, because some people are both vaccinated and had COVID-19 and some people got COVID-19 and were never ill enough to even be diagnosed.

The active case count number continues to drop. It is at 306 cases as of Wednesday. It's been about two months since numbers have been this low.

Of the 10,032 resolved cases, there have been 163 deaths, for a just over 1.6% death rate.
