Health officials paint dire picture as Covid hospitalizations surge in Shelby County

That’s about the same as during the height of the pandemic in January and hospitalizations are expected to double over the next two weeks. The problem is that hospitals are already at capacity in Shelby County and there are not enough health care workers to staff an overflow hospital.
