On Monday, Perry County Memorial Hospital said the COVID-19 vaccine would now be mandatory for all of its employees.

A statement from the hospital said that the vaccine was being made mandatory to keep team members, patients, and the rest of the Perry County community safe.

PCMH says all employees must receive the COVID-19 vaccine by Oct. 4, 2021.

Currently, the hospital says more than 76% of its employees are vaccinated against COVID-19.

“We have an obligation to do everything in our power to protect the health and well-being of others and to help end this pandemic," remarked Bill Bryant, Chief Nursing Officer at PCMH.

PCMH joins a growing list of Tri-State healthcare facilities now requiring employees to get the vaccine, including Deaconess, Baptist Health, and Ascension.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
