This was the worst week for the state and for the Lake Cumberland District in terms of new cases since the onset of the outbreak. Lake Cumberland’s new case rate exceeds the state average. We have 172 more active case today than we did last Saturday. We are at our peak number of hospitalizations at 43; 2 more than last Saturday. We experienced 3 deaths this week.

Eight of our district’s ten counties are now in the “red-critical” range: Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, Pulaski, Taylor, and Wayne. This leaves only McCreary, and Russell in the “orange-accelerated” range.

We have largely caught up on our delinquent data entry into the state system. We are hopeful the state reports will begin to better align with ours early next week.

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 5,108 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 120,387 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 119,661 statewide plus 726 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.
