We start the week off tough with a death, our 34 th . Today, we lost a 95-year-old female from Casey. On the upside, we released 41 cases today as recovered. Please don’t become complacent with wearing your face covering, avoiding crowds, social distancing, washing your hands frequently, increased sanitation, and with the avoidance of touching your face.

 

The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 765 Cumulative Confirmed Cases and there have been 23,271 Confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of 07/19/20 (this includes 23,161 statewide plus 110 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.
