The Marshall County Health Department reported one new COVID-19-related death in its Tuesday night report, the 62nd such death since the pandemic began.

Since the weekend there were also another 26 people across British Columbia who died from COVID-19, bringing the total number of people to 1,314. Out of this 12,188 samples have resulted positive for COVID-19.

Locally, Lantern Park Specialty Care in Coralville remained at 44 cases and added one new recovery for 37 total.

In the three weeks after the initial dose, the protective effect of the vaccine was almost 90 per cent, she said.

February 17-Boulder County reported two new COVID-19 deaths and 36 new cases as officials said it's uncertain if weather could impact the next delivery of COVID-19 vaccine doses. A total of 41,635 coronavirus doses have been administered in Boulder County. The death announced Tuesday was: Male, older than 85, Salt Lake County resident, hospitalized at time of death.

These numbers are beyond the "widespread" risk level factors for each county, which is more than seven daily new cases per 100,000 residents, and a positivity rate of more than 8 percent.

There have been three new health-care facility outbreaks at Shaughnessy Care Centre, Eden Gardens and Wexford Creek. That rate was roughly 4% at this time a year ago.

As of midnight, the HPSC has been notified of 744 confirmed cases of Covid-19. An unknown community transmission rate above 30% is considered a high-risk concern, because it means the virus is spreading beyond the state's ability to track it and contain it.

As of today, 828,078 Hoosiers have received a first dose of vaccine, and 347,508 are fully vaccinated.
