After 3 days of lower cases than last week, we shattered our all-time new case high. On 10/22/20, we added 80 cases; today, 92. It is telling to note that it took Lake Cumberland 168 days before 1% of its population had tested positive for COVID-19. It has only taken us 56 days to get to 2%. Of course, we do not know how many additional people have had the disease but was never tested.
 
Over the last several weeks many area groups have asked us to review their plans for “community events” such as festivals, parades, firework shows, holiday events etc. Without fail, these groups share with us plans that align with the Governor’s guidance. Almost equally without fail, these events fail to unfold as planned and consistent social distancing and masking does not take place. Therefore, the health department will no longer review these types of event plans. It will be the health department’s standing policy that we advise against any such social gathering. While we do not have the authority to prevent these types of events, we can no longer spend our time reviewing plans that consistently fail during execution. We will simply direct such “event planners” to the state’s guidance. Of course, we will continue to work with businesses, long-term care facilities, schools etc. to put together prevention and post-exposure COVID-19 plans.
 
6 of our counties remain in the “red-critical” range: Adair, Clinton, Cumberland, Russell, Taylor, and Wayne. The other 4 are in the “orange-accelerated” range of community-spread, Casey, Green, McCreary, and Pulaski.
 
Please, let’s all continue to 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 4,273 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 101,775 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 101,494 statewide plus 281 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 daily with positive cases. 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.

The death we report today is a 72-year-old female from Wayne who had been hospitalized. Our local mortality rate remains high compared to the statewide mortality rate. 
 
Today some new recommendations came out from the Governor’s Office for counties in the “red-critical” range of community-spread. These include:
  • Employers allow employees to work from home when possible
  • Non-critical government offices to operate virtually
  • Reduce in-person shopping; order online or curbside pickup
  • Order take-out; avoid dining in restaurants or bars
  • Prioritize businesses that follow and enforce mask mandate and other guidelines
  • Reschedule, postpone, or cancel public and private events
  • Do not host or attend gatherings of any size
  • Avoid non-essential activities outside your home
  • Reduce overall activity and contracts, and follow existing guidance, including 10 steps to defeat COVID-19.

 

Seven of our counties are in the “red-critical” range: Adair, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, Russell, Taylor, & Wayne. The other 3 are in the “orange-accelerated” range of community-spread, Casey, McCreary, & Pulaski. We are happy we released 4 more cases today than we added new one. We are also pleased our hospitalizations dropped by 3.
 
Please, let’s all continue to 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 4,122 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 98,079 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 97,866 statewide plus 213 recently reported cases in Lake Cumberland not in the Governor’s/Department for Public Health’s daily report).
