The death we are reporting today is a 69-year-old female from Clinton who had been a nursing home resident who expired while in the hospital. Also, we had a record number of new cases today at 107, and have our highest number of active cases at 697. Nine of our district’s ten counties are now in the “red-critical” range: Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, McCreary, Pulaski, Taylor, and Wayne. This leaves only Russell in the “orange-accelerated” range.

 

If you have been watching the hospital numbers closely, you may notice a discrepancy between yesterday and today’s numbers. This is because one case was corrected as hospitalized yesterday after the Daily Brief went out.

 

It should be noted that, due to the recent surge in cases, and due to a medical absence of one of our key staff, we are behind entering a significant number of cases into the state system. While our local numbers are current (as reported in our news briefs, and on our webpages), the numbers reported by the Governor’s Office and posted on the state’s COVID-19 webpage will be significantly off. We have reported this through the State Department for Public Health to the Governor’s Office. In any event, please utilize our local data for the time being.

 

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 4,917 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 115,907 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 115,277 statewide plus 630 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.
