Full statement: 

"Both Memorial Hospital and Orange Park Medical Center have seen a rise in COVID hospitalizations after the holidays. Even though the symptoms of this strain tend to be less severe than what we saw during the surge this summer, it's still very important for us all to follow the CDC guidelines around masking, hand hygiene and social distancing. We also encourage vaccination as the most effective away to end this pandemic."
