While new cases are down, the Delta Variant is spreading

Big Idea

  • The increase in cases per 100,000 has increased
  • There is one new case in Prescott, 9 in Yavapai County
  • The Delta Variant has different symptoms than the initial virus
  • Don’t brush it off as a cold
  •


Take time to restore your energy and re-connect with family and friends

Independence Day is an opportunity to reflect on the courage, compassion, and resiliency the public has shown over the last year and a half. Yavapai County’s wish for all of you this summer is the time to restore your energy and re-connect with family and friends.


As of July 2, 2021, Yavapai County has conducted

123,694 total tests, with 19,630 positive cases

529 COVID-19-related deaths overall in Yavapai County.

1 new case in Prescott

9 new cases in Yavapai County

11 hospitalizations at the two YRMC campuses

0 cases currently at the Prescott VA


Total vaccinations administered in Yavapai County is 178,244

Percent of people vaccinated: 43.7%

People fully vaccinated in Yavapai County against COVID-19 is 85,514



The ADHS dashboard to determine the level of community spread of COVID-19 in Yavapai County for the week ending June 26th indicates an increase in cases per 100,000 from 31/100k to 37/100K from the week ending June 26th, and an increase in percent positivity from 3.1% to 4.5%.


Symptoms of the COVID-19 Delta Variant appear to be different than the initial virus. 

  • Shortness of breath and other lung issues remain the most worrisome symptoms
  • upper respiratory issues such as congestion, runny nose and headache seem to be more prevalent. 
  • It may seem like a very bad cold – and it is very contagious.
  • The illness should not be brushed off as just a cold.
  • Respiratory droplets emitted from coughs and sneezes can infect other, more vulnerable, people.
  • Cases that start off mild can worsen and become more serious.

Vaccination remains the best protection against severe illness from COVID-19 and hospitalization.
