Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 12.29%.

 

Deaths: We are sad to report 2 new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 286 deaths resulting in a 1.8% mortality rate (about 1 in 56) among known cases. This compares with a 0.95% mortality rate at the state level, and a 1.67% mortality rate at the national level. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones.

 

Hospitalizations: We presently have 75 cases in the hospital. This is equal to what we reported yesterday. We have had a total of 900 hospitalizations resulting in a 5.65% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 18) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 4.75%. The latest data shows that 100% of Lake Cumberland’s ICU beds are filled, and 33.33% of ventilator capacity is being utilized.

 

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 15,933 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 7.63% of our total population have been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested.

 

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 171 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 14; Casey: 3; Clinton: 7; Cumberland: 6; Green: 3; McCreary: 13; Pulaski: 55; Russell: 14; Taylor: 32; and, Wayne: 24. In all, we have released 92% of our total cases.

 

Active (Current) Cases: Taking into account deaths and releases, our active cases decreased by 2 more than the new cases we added today. This leaves us with 996 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 12/10/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1,340.

 

Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Schools, Family, and Medical Facilities. We have had 64 cases tied to Christmas gaterings, 43 tied to Thanksgiving gatherings, and 13 tied to New Year’s events. Of our active cases, 13% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

A close look at our data may appear that Clinton and Pulaski’s numbers are off today. This is because we removed a duplicate entry from Pulaski and moved one Pulaski case to Clinton.

 

The deaths we report today are: a 74-year-old individual from Adair who had been hospitalized; and a 71-year-old individual from Wayne who had been hospitalized.

 

Of an alarming note, 100% of our district’s ICU capacity is currently being utilized. Also, it is becoming quite difficult to find an in-state hospital to which patients can be transferred. New cases are still high in our area so please, let’s all do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 by wearing our face coverings, avoiding crowds (especially in confined spaces), social distancing when around others, increasing our hand hygiene, increasing our general sanitation, and by avoiding touching our faces.

 

The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 15,933 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 314,391 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 313,282 statewide plus 1,109 recently reported cases in Lake Cumberland not in the Governor’s/Department for Public Health’s daily report). Regardless of the confirmed case count for any Lake Cumberland County, we believe COVID-19 to be widespread. The LCDHD is working tirelessly, including nights and weekends, to identify and contact all those with whom any positive case may have come into close contact, and to follow-up with positive cases when ready to be released.

 

Additionally, we are striving diligently to follow-up on business-related complaints regarding noncompliance with the Governor’s Executive Orders. We are also working with any community partner that requests assistance for prevention or post-exposure planning/response. Finally, we are working with all community partners regarding vaccination planning.

 

COVID-19 Vaccination Status

Here is an article we published this morning: COVID-19 Vaccine, Patience is Needed. As soon as we have additonal information, we will post it.

 

LCDHD is currently operating in Phase 1a of our COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan. This includes vaccines for healthcare workers and first responders. We are not pre-registering for future vaccination phases at this time, as vaccines are not readily available. As soon as the state authorizes us to order Phase 1b vaccine, we will order it and set up clinics. Please follow this website and the LCDHD social media sites such as Facebook for details about future vaccine availability once additional vaccine is received. Also, don’t forget about the contract with Walgreens and CVS pharmacies to vaccinate the long-term care facilities and personal care homes — residents and staff.

A close look at our data may appear Pulaski and Wayne’s numbers are off today. This is because we removed a duplicate entry in both of those counties today.

 

The death we announce today is: a 90-year-old individual from Casey who had been released from public health observation as no longer contagious, but later succumbed to lasting complications from the disease.

 

So far, this week’s new case numbers are lower than last week’s new case numbers for the same timeframe.

We are troubled by the very high hospitalization numbers in our district. Some of our hospitals’ leadership are expressing concerns.

 

Generally, deaths and hospitalizations follow the new cases trends by a couple of weeks or so. Lets hope that our new cases are truly starting to trend downward so that our hospitals can find some much-needed relief. For now, let’s all do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 by wearing our face coverings, avoiding crowds (especially in confined spaces), social distancing when around others, increasing our hand hygiene, increasing our general sanitation, and by avoiding touching our faces.

 

The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 15,762 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 309,667 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 308,729 statewide plus 938 recently reported cases in Lake Cumberland not in the Governor’s/Department for Public Health’s daily report). Regardless of the confirmed case count for any Lake Cumberland County, we believe COVID-19 to be widespread. The LCDHD is working tirelessly, including nights and weekends, to identify and contact all those with whom any positive case may have come into close contact, and to follow-up with positive cases when ready to be released.

 

Additionally, we are striving diligently to follow-up on business-related complaints regarding noncompliance with the Governor’s Executive Orders. We are also working with any community partner that requests assistance for prevention or post-exposure planning/response. Finally, we are working with all community partners regarding vaccination planning.

 

COVID-19 Vaccination Status

Here is an article we published this morning: COVID-19 Vaccine, Patience is Needed. As soon as we have additonal information, we will post it.

 

LCDHD is currently operating in Phase 1a of our COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan. This includes vaccines for healthcare workers and first responders.

 

We are not pre-registering for future vaccination phases at this time, as vaccines are not readily available. As soon as the state authorizes us to order Phase 1b vaccine, we will order it and set up clinics. Please follow this website and the LCDHD social media sites such as Facebook for details about future vaccine availability once additional vaccine is received. Also, don’t forget about the contract with Walgreens and CVS pharmacies to vaccinate the long-term care facilities and personal care homes — residents and staff.

OVER 3,000 NEW COVID-19 CASES IN KY & 22 NEW DEATHS...

 

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Jan. 12, 2021) – Today, Gov. Andy Beshear announced more than 3,000 cases and shared more details on the state’s unemployment one-time relief payment program.

 

“This is the fourth-highest Tuesday, it’s higher than the last couple weeks, so we’re trying to determine where these numbers are going,” said Gov. Beshear. “We are sure that this is a surge caused by gatherings through the holidays, but there is a chance from what we are seeing in the data that while people gathered during the holidays, maybe now they’ve changed their behavior back to be being very careful. If that’s the case, hopefully we’ll see a leveling off, but only the data over the next week is going to let us know.”

 

Gov. Beshear also expressed concerns Tuesday about the Kentucky House of Representatives moving forward with an impeachment petition even though it was filed by four individuals who have made threatening comments and organized extremist rallies, including those where heavily armed men hung the Governor in effigy and another held at the State Capitol last weekend.

 

Unemployment One-Time Relief Payment Program
Today, Gov. Beshear signed an executive order creating the Unemployment One-Time Relief Payment Program to be administered by the Office of Unemployment Insurance (OUI) and funded by Coronavirus Relief Fund money for up to $48 million. The program will provide one-time supplemental payments to claimants:

 

  1. $400 to claimants under any OUI program who: (a) would otherwise have qualified for 2020 FEMA Lost Wages Assistance but their weekly benefit amount was below $100, and (b) who had an approved claim in November and December 2020 but a weekly benefit amount of less than $176. Approximately 25,000 Kentuckians are eligible for this payment; and
  2. $1,000 to claimants under any OUI program between March 4 and Oct. 31, 2020, with verified identities and no indication of fraud, but whose claims were not yet adjudicated and paid. Approximately 16,500 Kentuckians are eligible for this payment.

 

“For those who were able to file a claim, we want to help these people until we can get to their claims,” said Gov. Beshear. “And we want to help the people who were working regular, full-time jobs before this crisis but still didn’t make enough to qualify for Lost Wages Assistance when they lost their jobs.”

 

Case Information
As of 4 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 12, Gov. Beshear reported the following COVID-19 numbers:

New cases today: 3,053
New deaths today: 22
Positivity rate: 12.23%
Total deaths: 2,944
Currently hospitalized: 1,733
Currently in ICU: 397
Currently on ventilator: 205

 

Top counties with the most positive cases today are: Jefferson, Madison, Kenton, Fayette, Boone and Warren. Each of these counties reported 90 or more new cases; Jefferson County alone reported 368.

Covid-19 Cases in The Lake Cumberland District

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 12.35%.

Deaths: We are sad to report 3 new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 283 deaths resulting in a 1.81% mortality rate (about 1 in 55) among known cases. This compares with a 0.96% mortality rate at the state level, and a 1.67% mortality rate at the national level. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones.

Hospitalizations: We presently have 65 cases in the hospital. This is 2 less than what we reported yesterday. We have had a total of 879 hospitalizations resulting in a 5.64% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 18) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 4.78%. The latest data shows that 91.11% of Lake Cumberland’s ICU beds are filled, and 31.67% of ventilator capacity is being utilized.

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 15,594 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 7.47% of our total population have been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested.

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 184 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 6; Casey: 7; Clinton: 13; Cumberland: 10; Green: 3; McCreary: 14; Pulaski: 66; Russell: 11; Taylor: 37; and, Wayne: 17. In all, we have released 91.8% of our total cases.

Active (Current) Cases: Taking into account deaths and releases, our active cases decreased by 49 more than the new cases we added today. This leaves us with 994 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 12/10/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1,340.

Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Schools, Family, and Medical Facilities. We have had 63 cases tied to Christmas gaterings, 43 tied to Thanksgiving gatherings, and 13 tied to New Year’s events. Of our active cases, 10% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 138 today: Adair: 5; Casey: 8; Clinton: 12; Cumberland: 2; Green: 3; McCreary: 9; Pulaski: 63; Russell: 12; Taylor: 11; and, Wayne: 13. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.014. This means our total case count is projected to double every 50.42 days. The most new cases we ever added in a single day was on 12/30/2020 when we added 301 cases. Today’s new cases include:

The deaths we report today are: a 70-year-old female from McCreary who had been hospitalized; an 83-year-old male, long-term care resident from Taylor; and an 88-year-old male from Wayne who had been hospitalized.

For most of the counties in our district, we have largely attended to the Phase 1a demand. We are ready to shift to Phase 1b. We have begun preliminary work with health partners and the schools to vaccinate school staff and have begun planning to vaccinate those 70 and over. However, we are still not authorized to order Phase 1b vaccine. Even when we do, it will likely trickle in resulting in it taking several weeks to work through Phase 1b.

For now , let’s all do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 by wearing our face coverings, avoiding crowds (especially in confined spaces), social distancing when around others, increasing our hand hygiene, increasing our general sanitation, and by avoiding the touching of our faces.

SENATOR MAX WISE'S LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

The Kentucky General Assembly has officially begun legislative business for the 2021 Regular Session. Our first official few days back in Frankfort have been productive. Diligent work throughout the 2020 Interim and handling initial procedural responsibilities bring me confidence in what this 30-day session has in store.

 

This year’s legislative session will be unlike any other. Standard procedures have been altered to avoid the spread of COVID-19, such as limiting the number of people within the Senate Chamber, committee rooms, and legislative suites at one time. Our excellent staff will remain socially distanced, workstations will be adequately sanitized, and masks will be worn to be as safe as possible while still fulfilling our constitutional obligations to the Commonwealth. Also unique about this year’s legislative session will be the responsibility to pass another state budget. For the first time in state history, a biennial budget was not passed. Instead, during the 2020 Session, as COVID-19 made its way into our lives, and not knowing what impacts it would have on state revenue, the General Assembly determined the best course of action was to pass a 1-year budget rather than a 2-year budget. The 2021 budget will be among the most critical efforts in this new 30-day session.

 

Some priority legislation of the majority caucus has been outlined. The bills are relevant to the topics at the forefront of discussions through the interim. They include measures to address the economic impacts of COVID-19 and the state’s response to it, liability protections for businesses and health care providers, police reforms, and better defining executive authority during a state of emergency. All of these and more have been the issues that have motivated constituents to contact lawmakers’ offices. They will be key topics of discussion and debate, along with other legislation aimed at addressing concerns that matter to the people of Kentucky.

 

The Senate moved swiftly this week to pass a pair of bills out of the chamber that would place limits on the governor’s use of executive orders and regulations. Senate Bill (SB) 1 would dictate that executive orders that place restrictions on the function of schools, businesses, or nonprofits expire after 30 days – unless extended by the General Assembly. The same would go for executive orders that regulate political, religious, and social gatherings or impose mandatory quarantines or isolation requirements. This bill has been designated as a 2021 legislative priority because the pandemic brought to light “fractures” in the current laws concerning executive orders. Provisions of SB 1 would also allow chief executive officers or local governments to seek emergency executive orders for their communities beyond 30 days in length.

 

The second measure, SB 2, would have similar effects and would require some administrative regulations to last no longer than 30 days if, for example, they imposed restrictions on gatherings or mandatory quarantines. The goal of SB 2 is to provide a more logical administrative process, transparency, and legislative oversight to hamper the ability of executive agencies to legislate through regulation, as when regulations are promulgated and accepted, they become law.

Other priority bills passed in the Senate this week include SB 3 and SB 9. 

 

SB 3 would reorganize the Governor’s Office of Agriculture Policy under the Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner’s Office. SB 9, better known as the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act, was passed out of the Senate again. That bill assures any baby born-alive will receive lifesaving medical care, even in cases of a botched abortion. SB 9 was passed last year but was vetoed by the governor. Unfortunately, the veto occurred beyond the veto override period. That will not be an issue this year if the bill is vetoed again.

 

We continued legislative business through Saturday, completing five days of the 30-day session. It was a very productive day for the General Assembly, as we passed 3 House bills. Meanwhile, the House was able to pass Senate bills that are now being delivered to the governor’s desk for either a signature or a veto. 

 

House Bills passed in the Senate on Saturday: 

 

·        HB 1 aims to provide clarity and reassurance amid a state of emergency for businesses, schools, parents, teachers, students, and religious institutions and that any business or school may remain open and operational if they follow a comprehensive operating plan, detailing how the business or school will adhere to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines to ensure safety.

 

·        HB 2 gives Kentucky’s Attorney General the authority to seek an injunction and civil or criminal penalties for violations of statutes and administrative regulations guiding the practice of abortion. Current law only allows the Attorney General to take action if the Cabinet for Health and Family Services secretary requests that he or she intervene.

 

·        HB 5 would require all executive branch reorganizations and board reorganizations to require a vote of the General Assembly as well as refining gubernatorial authority when the legislature is not in session.

 

I am honored for another year of representing the 16th District in the Kentucky State Senate. Though things will be different this year, I look forward to hearing from you. I will be keeping you updated over the 30-day session. Do not hesitate to contact my office with any questions or concerns you may have. God bless. 

 

If you have any questions or comments about these issues or any other public policy issue, please call me toll-free at 1-800-372-7181 or email me Max.Wise@LRC.ky.gov.

Covid-19 Cases in The Lake Cumberland District

 

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 11.93%.

 

Deaths: We are sad to report 4 new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 280 deaths resulting in a 1.84% mortality rate (about 1 in 54) among known cases. This compares with a 0.96% mortality rate at the state level, and a 1.69% mortality rate at the national level. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones.

 

Hospitalizations: We presently have 59 cases* in the hospital. This is 3 less than what we reported yesterday. We have had a total of 863 hospitalizations resulting in a 5.67% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 18) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 4.85%. The latest data shows that 80% of Lake Cumberland’s ICU beds are filled, and 26.67% of ventilator capacity is being utilized. (*This number is an estimation. Due to the high numbers, we only check with the hospitals on Fridays now. Therefore, the best time to see the most accurate hospital data will be in the Saturday News Brief.)

 

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 15,230 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 7.29% of our total population have been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested.

 

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 221 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 22; Casey: 5; Clinton: 42; Cumberland: 5; Green: 10; McCreary: 8; Pulaski: 43; Russell: 14; Taylor: 27; and, Wayne: 45. In all, we have released 90.8% of our total cases.

 

Active (Current) Cases: We added 18 more cases today than we had deceased and/or released cases. This leaves us with 1,114 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 12/10/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1,338.

 

Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Schools, Family, and Long-term Care/Residential Facilities. We have had 60 cases tied to Christmas gaterings, 43 tied to Thanksgiving gatherings, and 5 tied to New Year’s events. Of our active cases, 8% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

 

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 243 today: Adair: 12; Casey: 8; Clinton: 28; Cumberland: 8; Green: 10; McCreary: 20; Pulaski: 104; Russell: 14; Taylor: 19; and, Wayne: 20. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.015. This means our total case count is projected to double every 46.41 days. The most new cases we ever added in a single day was on 12/30/2020 when we added 301 cases.

The deaths we report today are: a 61-year-old individual from McCreary who had been hospitalized; a 76-year-old individual from McCreary who had been hospitalized; a 77-year-old individual from Taylor who had been hospitalized; and an 89-year-old individual from Wayne who had been hospitalized.

 

We added a new chart to our main COVID-19 statistics page that shows hospitalizations by age group. Seventy-five percent of our deaths have been in the 70 plus age group, and 50% of our hospitalizations. That is why it is important we get to this population with the vaccine as soon as possible. We are anxious to do this work. Please watch our Daily Brief and social media for breaking news about when vaccine for this population starts flowing into our communities.

 

New cases continue to be high. So, let’s all do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 by wearing our face coverings, avoiding crowds (especially in confined spaces), social distancing when around others, increasing our hand hygiene, increasing our general sanitation, and by avoiding the touching of our faces.

 

The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 15,230 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 297,298 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 296,167 statewide plus 1,131 recently reported cases in Lake Cumberland not in the Governor’s/Department for Public Health’s daily report). Regardless of the confirmed case count for any Lake Cumberland County, we believe COVID-19 to be widespread. The LCDHD is working tirelessly, including nights and weekends, to identify and contact all those with whom any positive case may have come into close contact, and to follow-up with positive cases when ready to be released. Additionally, we are striving diligently to follow-up on business-related complaints regarding noncompliance with the Governor’s Executive Orders. We are also working with any community partner that requests assistance for prevention or post-exposure planning/response. Finally, we are working with all community partners regarding vaccination planning.

 

COVID-19 Vaccination Update

LCDHD is currently operating in Phase 1a of our COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan. This includes vaccines for healthcare workers and first responders. We are not pre-registering for future vaccination phases at this time, as vaccines are not readily available. Please follow this website and the LCDHD social media sites such as Facebook for details about future vaccine availability once additional vaccine is received. Also, don’t forget about the contract with Walgreens and CVS pharmacies to vaccinate the long-term care facilities and personal care homes — residents and staff.

Two-Car Crash Near Green/Taylor Line Sends 3 People to Hospital

 

A Summersville woman and her passengers were injured after a 2-car crash Saturday morning near the Green/Taylor County Line at Black Gnat.

 
Taylor County Sheriff Allen Newton told 99.9 The Big Dawg News that 32-year-old Jessica Milby was traveling on Highway 68 (Greensburg Road) when a vehicle, operated by 49-year-old Michael Wilson of Campbellsville, KY was traveling on Miller Road and failed to stop, colliding with the Milby vehicle.
 
Wilson was not injured; Milby and her passengers, Jameson Milby and Jonah Milby, were all taken to Taylor Regional Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 
 
The accident occured on Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. and was investigated by Taylor County Deputy Sheriff Stephen Dobson.

Covid-19 Cases in The Lake Cumberland District

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 11.93%.

Deaths: We are sad to report 4 new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 280 deaths resulting in a 1.84% mortality rate (about 1 in 54) among known cases. This compares with a 0.96% mortality rate at the state level, and a 1.69% mortality rate at the national level. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones.

Hospitalizations: We presently have 59 cases* in the hospital. This is 3 less than what we reported yesterday. We have had a total of 863 hospitalizations resulting in a 5.67% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 18) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 4.85%. The latest data shows that 80% of Lake Cumberland’s ICU beds are filled, and 26.67% of ventilator capacity is being utilized. (*This number is an estimation. Due to the high numbers, we only check with the hospitals on Fridays now. Therefore, the best time to see the most accurate hospital data will be in the Saturday News Brief.)

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 15,230 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 7.29% of our total population have been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested.

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 221 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 22; Casey: 5; Clinton: 42; Cumberland: 5; Green: 10; McCreary: 8; Pulaski: 43; Russell: 14; Taylor: 27; and, Wayne: 45. In all, we have released 90.8% of our total cases.

Active (Current) Cases: We added 18 more cases today than we had deceased and/or released cases. This leaves us with 1,114 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 12/10/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1,338.

Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Schools, Family, and Long-term Care/Residential Facilities. We have had 60 cases tied to Christmas gaterings, 43 tied to Thanksgiving gatherings, and 5 tied to New Year’s events. Of our active cases, 8% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 243 today: Adair: 12; Casey: 8; Clinton: 28; Cumberland: 8; Green: 10; McCreary: 20; Pulaski: 104; Russell: 14; Taylor: 19; and, Wayne: 20. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.015. This means our total case count is projected to double every 46.41 days. The most new cases we ever added in a single day was on 12/30/2020 when we added 301 cases. Today’s new cases include:

We added a new chart to our main COVID-19 statistics page that shows hospitalizations by age group. Seventy-five percent of our deaths have been in the 70 plus age group, and 50% of our hospitalizations. That is why it is important we get to this population with the vaccine as soon as possible. We are anxious to do this work. Please watch our Daily Brief and social media for breaking news about when vaccine for this population starts flowing into our communities.

New cases continue to be high. So, let’s all do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 by wearing our face coverings, avoiding crowds (especially in confined spaces), social distancing when around others, increasing our hand hygiene, increasing our general sanitation, and by avoiding the touching of our faces.

The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 15,230 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 297,298 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 296,167 statewide plus 1,131 recently reported cases in Lake Cumberland not in the Governor’s/Department for Public Health’s daily report). Regardless of the confirmed case count for any Lake Cumberland County, we believe COVID-19 to be widespread. The LCDHD is working tirelessly, including nights and weekends, to identify and contact all those with whom any positive case may have come into close contact, and to follow-up with positive cases when ready to be released. Additionally, we are striving diligently to follow-up on business-related complaints regarding noncompliance with the Governor’s Executive Orders. We are also working with any community partner that requests assistance for prevention or post-exposure planning/response. Finally, we are working with all community partners regarding vaccination planning.

COVID-19 Vaccination Update

LCDHD is currently operating in Phase 1a of our COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan. This includes vaccines for healthcare workers and first responders. We are not pre-registering for future vaccination phases at this time, as vaccines are not readily available. Please follow this website and the LCDHD social media sites such as Facebook for details about future vaccine availability once additional vaccine is received. Also, don’t forget about the contract with Walgreens and CVS pharmacies to vaccinate the long-term care facilities and personal care homes — residents and staff.

Covid-19 Cases in The Lake Cumberland District

 

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 11.66%.

 

Deaths: We are sad to report 2 new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 276 deaths resulting in a 1.87% mortality rate (about 1 in 53) among known cases. This compares with a 0.98% mortality rate at the state level, and a 1.7% mortality rate at the national level. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones.

 

Hospitalizations: We presently have 73 cases* in the hospital. This is 14 less than what we reported yesterday. We have had a total of 846 hospitalizations resulting in a 5.74% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 17) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 4.9%. The latest data shows that 97.78% of Lake Cumberland’s ICU beds are filled, and 26.67% of ventilator capacity is being utilized. (*This number is an estimation. Due to the high numbers, we only check with the hospitals on Fridays now. Therefore, the best time to see the most accurate hospital data will be in the Saturday News Brief.)

 

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 14,744 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 7.06% of our total population have been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested.


Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 62 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 3; Casey: 4; Clinton: 5; Cumberland: 4; Green: 3; McCreary: 8; Pulaski: 8; Russell: 4; Taylor: 9; and, Wayne: 14. In all, we have released 90.1% of our total cases.

 

Active (Current) Cases: We added 218 more cases today than we had deceased and/or released cases. This leaves us with 1,184 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 12/10/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1,338.

 

Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Family, Schools, and Long-term Care/Residential Facilities. We have had 58 cases tied to Christmas gaterings, 43 tied to Thanksgiving gatherings, and 2 tied to New Year’s events. Of our active cases, 10% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

 

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 282 today: Adair: 9; Casey: 17; Clinton: 25; Cumberland: 14; Green: 6; McCreary: 13; Pulaski: 85; Russell: 24; Taylor: 37; and, Wayne: 52. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.01. This means our total case count is projected to double every 67.28 days. The most new cases we ever added in a single day was on 12/30/2020 when we added 301 cases.

Our Adair and Wayne numbers appear off by one today. This is because we moved 1 case from Wayne to Adair.

The deaths we report today are: a 68-year-old individual from Adair who had been hospitalized; and a 72-year-old individual from McCreary who had been hospitalized.

 

Cases are starting to surge again at the state and local level. This could be a result of holiday gatherings. We have had 58 cases so far that report attending a Christmas gathering. With the return of some degree of in-person school instruction, the next few weeks may continue to see increased case numbers. So, let’s all do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 by wearing our face coverings, avoiding crowds (especially in confined spaces), social distancing when around others, increasing our hand hygiene, increasing our general sanitation, and by avoiding touching our faces.

 

The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 14,744 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 287,491 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 286,541 statewide plus 950 recently reported cases in Lake Cumberland not in the Governor’s/Department for Public Health’s daily report). Regardless of the confirmed case count for any Lake Cumberland County, we believe COVID-19 to be widespread. The LCDHD is working tirelessly, including nights and weekends, to identify and contact all those with whom any positive case may have come into close contact, and to follow-up with positive cases when ready to be released. Additionally, we are striving diligently to follow-up on business-related complaints regarding noncompliance with the Governor’s Executive Orders. We are also working with any community partner that requests assistance for prevention or post-exposure planning/response. Finally, we are working with all community partners regarding vaccination planning.

 

COVID-19 Vaccination Update

LCDHD is currently operating in Phase 1a of our COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan. This includes vaccines for healthcare workers and first responders. We are not pre-registering for future vaccination phases at this time, as vaccines are not readily available. Please follow this website and the LCDHD social media sites such as Facebook for details about future vaccine availability once additional vaccine is received. Also, don’t forget about the contract with Walgreens and CVS pharmacies to vaccinate the long-term care facilities and personal care homes — residents and staff.

Covid-19 Cases in The Lake Cumberland District

 

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 11.36%.

 

Deaths: We regret we must report 3 new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 274 deaths resulting in a 1.89% mortality rate (about 1 in 53) among known cases. This compares with a 0.99% mortality rate at the state level, and a 1.7% mortality rate at the national level. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones.

 

Hospitalizations: We presently have 87 cases* in the hospital. This is 6 more than what we reported yesterday. We have had a total of 836 hospitalizations resulting in a 5.78% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 17) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 4.93%. The latest data shows that 91.11% of Lake Cumberland’s ICU beds are filled, and 25% of ventilator capacity is being utilized. (*This number is an estimation. Due to the high numbers, we only check with the hospitals on Fridays now. Therefore, the best time to see the most accurate hospital data will be in the Saturday News Brief.)

 

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 14,462 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 6.92% of our total population have been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested.

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 138 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 5; Casey: 2; Clinton: 22; Cumberland: 7; Green: 5; McCreary: 9; Pulaski: 39; Russell: 12; Taylor: 14; and, Wayne: 23. In all, we have released 91.4% of our total cases.

 

Active (Current) Cases: We added 153 more cases today than we had deceased and/or released cases. This leaves us with 966 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 12/10/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1,338.

 

Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Family, Schools, and Long-term Care/Residential Facilities. We have had 54 cases tied to Christmas gaterings, 43 tied to Thanksgiving gatherings, and 1 tied to a New Year’s event. Of our active cases, 10% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

 

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 294 today: Adair: 28; Casey: 10; Clinton: 32; Cumberland: 14; Green: 5; McCreary: 32; Pulaski: 51; Russell: 25; Taylor: 45; and, Wayne: 52. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.011. This means our total case count is projected to double every 64.68 days. The most new cases we ever added in a single day was on 12/30/2020 when we added 301 cases.

A close look at the data will appear that the Clinton numbers are off by 1 today. This is because 1 case was removed as not meeting case definition.

 

The deaths we report today are: an 85-year-old individual from McCreary; a 66-year-old individual from Taylor who had been hospitalized; and a 93-year-old individual from Taylor who had been hospitalized.

We are being inundated with phone calls, and messages about the COVID-19 vaccine. Rather than calling or sending us messages, please read our Daily Brief and social media posts for the very latest information.

 

New cases are still very high, and our area mortality, and hospitalization rates remain high. So, let’s all do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 by wearing our face coverings, avoiding crowds (especially in confined spaces), social distancing when around others, increasing our hand hygiene, increasing our general sanitation, and by avoiding the touching of our faces.

 

The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 14,462 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 281,681 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 280,836 statewide plus 845 recently reported cases in Lake Cumberland not in the Governor’s/Department for Public Health’s daily report). Regardless of the confirmed case count for any Lake Cumberland County, we believe COVID-19 to be widespread. The LCDHD is working tirelessly, including nights and weekends, to identify and contact all those with whom any positive case may have come into close contact, and to follow-up with positive cases when ready to be released. Additionally, we are striving diligently to follow-up on business-related complaints regarding noncompliance with the Governor’s Executive Orders. We are also working with any community partner that requests assistance for prevention or post-exposure planning/response. Finally, we are working with all community partners regarding vaccination planning.

BBB Warns of Secret Shopper Scam

Jan 2021 Hot Topics

 

  1. Don’t fall for a secret shopper scam! A local consumer reported to BBB Scam Tracker that she received a check to be a Secret Shopper. She was told to deposit the $2000 check, keep $500 for payment, then use the rest to purchase gift cards and send the gift card information. The check was fake, and the victim is out the money!
  2. A local consumer fell for a car wrap scam. Scammers used the address of a local business. The victim was sent a check, was told to cash it at the bank, keep part of it for payment, then take the rest of the money and deposit it to an account for the decal people to put the decal on his car. Supposedly, every two weeks, he would continue to be paid while the decal was on his car.
  3. Don’t fall for an employment scam! Several victims have reached out to BBB Scam Tracker saying they were contacted by “shipping companies” out of the local area, offering jobs as “Quality Control Inspectors.” Victims are told they will make a large sum of money to pick up packages, inspect them, and reship them. In order to get the job, the scammers ask for your personal information.
  4. A new phishing scam involves calls offering assistance with claiming unemployment benefits. The scammers usually claim to be from a federal or state labor department and ask for personal and confidential information. Just hang up.
  5. Scammers are using the confusion surrounding the second round of stimulus checks to take your money. Don’t provide personal information, upfront fees, or click on any links to fill out an “application” for the payment.
  6. Scammers are still cashing in on COVID scams. Be wary of anyone who reaches out to you in regards to getting the vaccine via a phone call, text, or email. Scammers impersonate the CDC,  in an attempt to steal your personal information.
  7. A fake notice from Amazon says that someone spent thousands of dollars using your account. In some cases, people receive what seems to be an invoice from Amazon requesting payment. The message contains a supposed fraud-hotline number. Victims are told they must send money to correct the "mistake."

VACCINATION FOR COVID 19 ACROSS THE LAKE CUMBERLAND DISTRICT

Vaccination for COVID 19 began December 23rd  across the Lake Cumberland District.  Each of the ten health departments received limited doses of the vaccine.  These doses were given to individuals identified by the Kentucky Department for Public Health Tier 1a.  The Tier 1a individuals consist of long-term care facilities (LTCF) residents and staff, assisted living facilities (ALT) residents and staff, healthcare personnel in clinical settings (inpatient, outpatient, dental and homebased).   The health departments focus has been on healthcare personnel.

 

The long-term care facilities (LTCF) residents and staff, are being vaccinated by a contact through the Department for Public Health with Walgreens and CVS pharmacies.  We anticipate these facilities in our District should be vaccinated by March.    

 

Hospitals across the Lake Cumberland District have received limited supplies of vaccine.  They are asked to follow the Kentucky Department for Public Health Tier Vaccination guidelines.  The hospitals have vaccinated their employees, as well as, in some counties assisted with additional health care personnel.    

 

We have requested additional vaccine to continue vaccinating Tier 1a.  After all identified Tier 1a individuals have been vaccinated, we will begin vaccination for Tier 1b.  Tier 1b is identified as first responders, K-12 school employees and persons over 70 years of age. Tier 1b is an extremely large group of individuals.  We want remind everyone that this is no easy task.  We realize many individuals want to be vaccinated.  However, there is very limited amounts of vaccine available at this time.

 

We do want to assure the public that we are working diligently to vaccinate the community as guided by the Department for Public Health.  Everyone be aware, it may be summer before unlimited vaccine will be available for the community at large.

Covid-19 Cases in The Lake Cumberland District Sunday Night Report

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 11.12%.

Deaths: We regret we must report 3 new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 263 deaths resulting in a 1.88% mortality rate (about 1 in 53) among known cases. This compares with a 0.98% mortality rate at the state level, and a 1.71% mortality rate at the national level. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones.

Hospitalizations: We presently have 79 cases* in the hospital. This is 7 more than what we reported yesterday. We have had a total of 819 hospitalizations resulting in a 5.85% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 17) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 4.96%. The latest data shows that 95.56% of Lake Cumberland’s ICU beds are filled, and 27.59% of ventilator capacity is being utilized. (*This number is an estimation. Due to the high numbers, we only check with the hospitals on Fridays now. Therefore, the best time to see the most accurate hospital data will be in the Saturday News Brief.)

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 13,997 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 6.7% of our total population have been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested.

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 212 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 6; Casey: 5; Clinton: 23; Cumberland: 8; Green: 7; McCreary: 11; Pulaski: 82; Russell: 13; Taylor: 22; and, Wayne: 35. In all, we have released 92.3% of our total cases.

Active (Current) Cases: Taking into account deaths and releases, our active cases decreased by 100 more than the new cases we added today. This leaves us with 808 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 12/10/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1,340.

Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Family, Long-term Care/Residential Facilities, and Schools. Of our active cases, 13% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

The deaths we report today are a 75-year-old individual from Taylor County; a 68-year-old individual from Wayne County; and a 73-year-old individual from Wayne County.

We are uncertain when the next COVID-19 vaccine shipments will arrive. After health care workers and nursing home residents and staff, as of today, the next phase will include school staff, first responders, and those who are seventy and older.

All our counties are back in the “Red-Critical” range of community spread. We are still having high numbers of new cases, and high rates of hospitalizations and death, so let’s all do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 by wearing our face coverings, avoiding crowds (especially in confined spaces), social distancing when around others, increasing our hand hygiene, increasing our general sanitation, and by avoiding the touching of our faces.

The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 13,997 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 277,432 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 276,826 statewide plus 606 recently reported cases in Lake Cumberland not in the Governor’s/Department for Public Health’s daily report). Regardless of the confirmed case count for any Lake Cumberland County, we believe COVID-19 to be widespread. The LCDHD is working tirelessly, including nights and weekends, to identify and contact all those with whom any positive case may have come into close contact, and to follow-up with positive cases when ready to be released. Additionally, we are striving diligently to follow-up on business-related complaints regarding noncompliance with the Governor’s Executive Orders. We are also working with any community partner that requests assistance for prevention or post-exposure planning/response. Finally, we are working with all community partners regarding vaccination planning.

A close look at the numbers may appear some of our counties’ data are off. This is because we moved one case from Adair to Pulaski.

The deaths we report today are: a 77-year-old individual from Pulaski who had been hospitalized; a 64-year-old individual from Wayne who had been hospitalized; a 76-year-old individual from Wayne; and an 89-year-old individual from Wayne.

After a few weeks of declining cases, last week saw an increase in the new case rate at both the state and local level. This week, Lake Cumberland added 1,007 new cases, last week, 789. We also broke our all-time one-day new case record on 12/30/20 adding 301 new cases. Last Saturday, we were at 867 active cases, today, 908. Twelve deaths occurred this week. Hospitalizations also remain high.

We have had 34 cases tie back to Christmas gatherings so far. We had 43 cases tie back to Thanksgiving gatherings. Please realize that large family gatherings are not safe. In fact, any situation that encourages gathering is not safe. Until the vaccinate is largely available, let’s all do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 by wearing our face coverings, avoiding crowds (especially in confined spaces), social distancing when around others, increasing our hand hygiene, increasing our general sanitation, and by avoiding the touching of our faces.

The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 13,882 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 274,678 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 273,971 statewide plus 707 recently reported cases in Lake Cumberland not in the Governor’s/Department for Public Health’s daily report). Regardless of the confirmed case count for any Lake Cumberland County, we believe COVID-19 to be widespread. The LCDHD is working tirelessly, including nights and weekends, to identify and contact all those with whom any positive case may have come into close contact, and to follow-up with positive cases when ready to be released. Additionally, we are striving diligently to follow-up on business-related complaints regarding noncompliance with the Governor’s Executive Orders. We are also working with any community partner that requests assistance for prevention or post-exposure planning/response. Finally, we are working with all community partners regarding vaccination planning.
