- Region J Critical Care Bed Capacity increased to 29 today. There are only 20% (567 beds) critical care beds available statewide.
Exceeding EGRMC bed and staff capacity is why leaders keep calling for citizens to wear a mask, social distance, wash hands and avoid crowds to slow the spread and not overwhelm our hospital. EGRMC has 24 ICU beds and 17 vents currently. The ICU bed count does not include step down beds. They can expand to more critical beds if needed with some modifications.
DPH Launches covid19.dph.ga.gov Website to Schedule and Track Test
The Georgia Department of Public Health has now launched covid19.dph.ga.gov a website to schedule FREE COVID-19 test at any of the Specimen Point of Collection (SPOC). Bulloch County SPOC is located at the Bulloch County Health Department. You will create a free account on the site, which allows you to schedule test and track results. It is important to put the address of the county you are living in when scheduling the test. This is very important for college students who are living in Statesboro attending school. Even though their driver’s license or insurance card address may be their home address, for results to be tracked where they live, it is important to use your address of residency.
