Our cases are still on the rise. Please don’t forget the guidance. Everyone should continue to wear their face coverings, avoid crowds as much as possible, social distance, wash their hands frequently, increase sanitation, and avoid the touching of their faces.

 

The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 1,102 Cumulative Confirmed Cases and there have been 30,866 Confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of 08/01/20 (this includes 30,723 statewide plus 143 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.
