Sunday Night Covid Update

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 8.95%.

Deaths: We regret we must report 1 new death today. We have experienced a total of 124 deaths resulting in a 1.5% mortality rate (about 1 in 67) among known cases. This compares with a 1.08% mortality rate at the state level, and a 2% morality rate at the national level. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones.

Hospitalizations: We presently have 71 cases* in the hospital. This is 6 more than yesterday. We have had a total of 520 hospitalizations resulting in a 6.29% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 16) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 5.73%. The latest state data shows that 86% of ICU beds and an unreported % of ventilator capacity are being utilized. (*This number is an estimation. Due to the high numbers, we only check with the hospitals on Fridays now. Therefore, the best time to see the most accurate hospital data will be in the Saturday News Brief.)

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 8,265 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 3.96% of our total population have been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested.

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 132 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 11; Casey: 7; Clinton: 3; Cumberland: 2; Green: 11; McCreary: 19; Pulaski: 41; Russell: 12; Taylor: 22; and, Wayne: 4. In all, we have released 86.4% of our total cases.

Active (Current) Cases: We released 26 more cases today than we added new cases. Taking all things into account, this leaves us with 997 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 11/25/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1150.

Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Long-term Care/Residential Facilities, Businesses, Schools, and Family. Of our active cases, 10% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

The death we announce today is an 81-year-old female from Wayne who had been released from public health monitoring (meaning she was no longer contagious), but later succumbed to lasting complications from the disease. Keep in mind that locally, approximately 1 in every 67 people who contract COVID-19 will die from it.

A close look at the data will appear that the McCreary numbers are off by 1 today. That is because we removed one duplicate entry from McCreary. This also caused our total case count increase to be one less than our new case count increase for the day.

We added 108 new cases today compared with 98 new cases last Sunday. However, we have 26 fewer active cases (997 vs 1,023). Our hospitalized cases remain at a record-high level.

We often get asked questions about how many of our cases have underlying health conditions or how many of our COVID-19 related deaths were due to COVID-19 only. These types of questions demonstrate a narrow and lacking understanding of morbidity and mortality. It should be noted that almost everyone in Kentucky, even those who aren’t presently “sick” form anything, has “underlying health conditions” such as diabetes, high-blood pressure, heart disease, etcetera. Also, no matter what someone dies from, COVID-19 or otherwise, there are almost always co-morbidities (other contributing factors) such as, again, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, etcetera). When a COVID-19 death is announced by us, we have every reason to believe that COVID-19 was either the primary cause of death or was a major contributor thereof.

People also often claim that in our total case count that we count people multiple times; that we count them for every positive test they may have had. This is false. For every case we report, we have an associated name, birthdate, and address; and, that person is only listed once regardless of how many tests they may have had. If we discover we have reported a duplicate, such as the one referenced above, we adjust our numbers and report that publicly.

The one exception to this is when an individual contracts COVID-19 for a second time. Basically, this means they have had a lab confirmed COVID-19 illness, and then had a second lab-confirmed COVID-19 illness over 90 days later. Though rare, this is possible. In fact, 10 or our 8,265 cases, or .0012%, or about 12 in 10,000, to have had a repeat infections – have contracted COVID-19 twice. This could be due to waning post-exposure immunity, having contracted a slightly different strain of the COVID-19 virus, or due to having had a false-positive lab result. Again, this is very, very rare.

The practices of public health, epidemiology, the monitoring of communicable diseases, and the study of morbidity and mortality are sciences supported by scholarship and years of research. These are specialized fields practiced by providers aided by years of advanced education and experience. Please do not allow “social media conspiracy theories”, pseudo-sciences, or public opinion to cause you to discount the advice of public health officials. COVID-19 is serious (in our area, 1 in 67 people who contract it die from it, and 1 in 16 end up hospitalized). For 2020, it is now one of the leading causes of death in our nation.

Mother Nature has presented us with a challenge that is disruptive to our normal lives, we don’t like being inconvenienced by this disease, and leadership at the world, federal, state, and local levels have “politicized” it. But, know this, COVID-19 does not care about your political affiliation, your race, your sex, or your religion; nor does it care about county or state borders. When it attacks in clusters, it does not distinguish between churches or bars; between public or private schools; or, between government or private businesses. Let your guard down, and you could become 1 of the 16 who contract it who become hospitalized, or, more frightening, 1 of the 67 who will die.

There is hope. It is within your control to reduce your risk, and the risks of those around you. Please, let’s all 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 8,265 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 178,804 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 176,925 statewide plus 1,879 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 deaths we report today are: a 66-year-old male from Adair who had been hospitalized; and, a 75-year-old male from Taylor who had been hospitalized. Our death rate continues to be high compared to the state average.

Though we still have high numbers, this week was an improvement over last, at least in some aspects. Maybe this is a fluke due to fewer people seeking testing over the holidays. Nevertheless, we will take the good news and hope it continues into the next week. We have 78 fewer active cases compared to last week (1,023 vs 1,101). We added 961 new cases this week compared to 1,203 last week. On the negative side, our deaths this week were higher than last (11 compared to 8), as was our hospitalizations (65 this Saturday compared to 63 last Saturday).

Remember, it is within our power to impact the spread of COVID-19, and it will take a community-wide committment to improve our situation. Please, let’s all 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 8,158 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 176,005 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 174,182 statewide plus 1,823 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.

A close look at our numbers may appear that out total cases are off by 1 today. This is because we removed an earlier Clinton case that did not meet criteria.

 

We are presently experiencing continued high numbers of COVID-19 new cases. At our present growth rate, our total case count is expected to double in just over 35 days. We also have a record number of hospitalized cases at the moment.

 

There is hope! It is within our power to impact the spread of COVID-19. Please, let’s all 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 8,036 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 173,582 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 171,755 statewide plus 1,827 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.

7 NEW COVID-19 DEATHS IN LAKE CUMBERLAND DISTRICT...

 

REMINDER: LCDHD Staff will take Thanksgiving Day off to observe the holiday with our families, although it will be a nontraditional, socially distanced day for most of us. There will be no evening reports on Thursday, November 26. The reports will resume on Friday. Thank you for understanding.

 

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 8.88%.

 

Deaths: We are sad to report 7 new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 121 deaths resulting in a 1.54% mortality rate (about 1 in 65) among known cases. This compares with a 1.1% mortality rate at the state level, and a 2.06% morality rate at the national level. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones.

 

Hospitalizations: We presently have 76 cases in the hospital. We have had a total of 498 hospitalizations resulting in a 6.34% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 16) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 5.87%. The latest state data shows that 86% of ICU beds and an unreported % of ventilator capacity are being utilized.

 

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 7,849 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 3.76% of our total population have been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested.

 

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 162 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 21; Casey: 6; Clinton: 8; Green: 6; McCreary: 10; Pulaski: 41; Russell: 28; Taylor: 18; and, Wayne: 24. In all, we have released 83.8% of our total cases.

 

Active (Current) Cases: We added 29 more cases today than we released historic cases. Taking all things into account, this leaves us with 1152 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 11/25/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1152.

 

Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Long-term Care/Residential Facilities, Schools, and Medical Facilities. Of our active cases, 15% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

 

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 198 today: Adair: 24; Casey: 8; Clinton: 12; Cumberland: 5; Green: 5; McCreary: 6; Pulaski: 70; Russell: 24; Taylor: 26; and, Wayne: 18. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.026. This means our total case count is projected to double every 27.33 days.

In observance of the Thanksgiving Holiday, there will be no reports on Thursday the 26th.

 

A close look at the data may appear that our numbers are off by 1 today. This is because we moved one case from Taylor to a proper address outside our district.

 

We are very sad to report 7 deaths today. The deaths include a 90-year-old female from Cumberland who had been hospitalized; a 53-year-old female from Pulaski who had been hospitalized; an 88-year-old male from Pulaski who had been an assisted living resident; a 75-year-old male from Pulaski; a 63-year-old male from Russell who had been a long-term care resident; a 70-year-old female from Russell; and, an 80-year-old female from Wayne.

 

We have a record number of active cases, hospitalized cases are high, deaths are on the rise, and new cases are still very high. To help put in perspective the exponential growth we are currently experiencing, keep in mind: it took us 133 days to have 1,000 total cases in the Lake Cumberland area; 34 additional days to get to 2,000 cases; 33 more days to reach 3,000; 21 additional days to get to 4,000; 13 more days to get to 5,000; 10 more days to get to 6,000; and, only 5 more days to reach 7,000 total cases.

 

There is hope! It is within our power to impact the spread of COVID-19. Please, let’s all 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 7,849 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 167,981 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 166,139 statewide plus 1,842 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.

 

Kentucky Christian Academy in Campbellsville Joins Lawsuit

 

FRANKFORT, Ky. (KT) - Seventeen Kentucky Christian schools and more than 1,000 Kentucky parents filed separate briefs in support of a federal lawsuit against Gov. Andy Beshear‘s order halting in-person instruction at public and private K-12 schools.


The amicus brief filed Monday by the parents said Beshear’s executive order violates Danville Christian Academy’s right to the free exercise of religion and violates the free exercise rights of parents who send their children to religious schools as part of the children’s religious training.


The brief, filed by the religious schools in U.S. District Court in Frankfort, said there was no link to any current increase in COVID cases to numbers in schools.


“Because the religious schools believe both in the importance of their mission and the need for in-person instruction to the greatest extent possible, each of the religious schools has taken extraordinary steps and incurred significant financial expense to provide safe in-person learning during this academic year,” the brief said.


Beshear announced new executive orders Wednesday designed to curb the spread of COVID-19 in Kentucky, which has been setting records nearly daily.


One order requires the state's private and public K-12 schools to hold only virtual classes until Jan. 4.


Elementary schools not in red counties, which average 25 or more new daily cases per 100,000 residents, can resume in-person classes Dec. 7 if they follow the state’s "Healthy At School" guidance, according to Beshear’s order.


The Kentucky Supreme Court ruled earlier this month that Beshear can protect the health and safety of Kentucky citizens.


On Friday, Danville Christian Academy and Attorney General Daniel Cameron filed a lawsuit against Beshear, saying his order closing Kentucky’s schools, including private religious schools, violates the First Amendment of the Constitution and the state’s Religious Freedom and Restoration Act.


“The governor’s school-closure order prohibits religious organizations from educating children consistent with and according to their faith,” Cameron, said in a release. “The ability to provide and receive a private religious education is a core part of the freedoms protected by the First Amendment.”


Beshear said Monday at his regular press conference he closed public and private schools to in-person learning as a last resort, saying “it is not safe” and that roughly 10,000 school kids had been in quarantine.


The motion for a temporary restraining order filed along with the federal lawsuit said, “Danville Christian has a sincerely held religious belief that it is called by God to have in-person instruction for its students, and it believes that ‘its students should be educated with a Christian worldview in a communal in-person environment.’”


U.S. District Judge Gregory F. Van Tatenhove heard the request for a temporary restraining order Monday afternoon in Lexington and is expected to render a decision this week.


Beshear’s general counsel filed a response, saying the governor treated all schools equally and that the Kentucky Supreme Court unanimously has upheld his emergency orders.


The 17 Christian schools who filed the brief were: Pleasantville Baptist School, Veritas Christian Academy, Highlands Latin, Micah Christian School, Faith Baptist Academy, Central Baptist Academy, Cornerstone Christian School, Mayfield Creek Christian School, Bourbon Christian Academy, Foundation Christian Academy, Heritage Christian School, Kentucky Christian Academy, Lexington Christian Academy, Lexington Latin School, Somerset Christian School, Summit Christian Academy and Trinity Christian Academy.  

 

Covid-19 Cases in The Lake Cumberland District

 

Hospitalizations: We presently have 69 cases in the hospital. This is 2 more than yesterday. The most hospitalizations we have had at any one time was 69 on 11/24/2020. We have had a total of 483 hospitalizations resulting in a 6.31% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 16) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 5.91%. The latest state data shows that 86% of ICU beds and an unreported % of ventilator capacity are being utilized.

 

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 7,651 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 3.66% of our total population have been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested.

 

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 184 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 18; Casey: 13; Clinton: 13; Cumberland: 3; Green: 9; McCreary: 12; Pulaski: 55; Russell: 17; Taylor: 32; and, Wayne: 12. In all, we have released 83.8% of our total cases.

 

Active (Current) Cases: We added 52 more cases today than we released historic cases. Taking all things into account, this leaves us with 1123 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 11/20/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1125.

 

Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Long-term Care/Residential Facilities, Schools, and Medical Facilities. Of our active cases, 17% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

 

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 237 today: Adair: 22; Casey: 11; Clinton: 8; Cumberland: 9; Green: 11; McCreary: 22; Pulaski: 83; Russell: 12; Taylor: 38; and, Wayne: 21. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.027. This means our total case count is projected to double every 26.41 days. The most new cases we ever added in a single day was on 11/19/2020 when we added 273 cases.

A close look at the data may appear that we are off by one today. That is because we removed one duplicate.

 

The death we report today was a 60-year-old female from Cumberland. Our mortality rate remains high when compared to the state average.

 

We have a record number of hospitalizations today, 69. Hospital capacity remains our most urgent concern. Therefore, we continue to call upon all of our community leaders and citizens to face this challenge with the utmost seriousness before our medical infrastructures are compromised. There is hope! It is within our power to impact the spread of COVID-19. Please, let’s all 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 7,651 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 164,607 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 162,838 statewide plus 1,769 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.

 

5 New Covid-19 Deaths in Lake Cumberland District....

 
Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 8.97%.
 
Deaths: We are sad to report 5 new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 113 deaths resulting in a 1.52% mortality rate (about 1 in 66) among known cases. This compares with a 1.12% mortality rate at the state level, and a 2.08% morality rate at the national level. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones.
 
Hospitalizations: We presently have 67 cases in the hospital. This is 6 more than yesterday. The most hospitalizations we have had at any one time was 67 on 11/23/2020. We have had a total of 475 hospitalizations resulting in a 6.41% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 16) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 5.95%. The latest state data shows that 86% of ICU beds and an unreported % of ventilator capacity are being utilized.
 
Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 7,414 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 3.55% of our total population have been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested.
 
Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 149 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 6; Casey: 4; Clinton: 16; Cumberland: 8; Green: 10; McCreary: 6; Pulaski: 36; Russell: 10; Taylor: 30; and, Wayne: 23. In all, we have released 84% of our total cases.
 
Active (Current) Cases: We released 36 more cases today than we added new cases. Taking all things into account, this leaves us with 1071 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 11/20/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1127.
 
Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Long-term Care/Residential Facilities, Schools, and Family. Of our active cases, 19% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).
 
New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 118 today: Adair: 8; Casey: 3; Clinton: 11; Green: 4; McCreary: 15; Pulaski: 47; Russell: 9; Taylor: 17; and, Wayne: 4. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.026. This means our total case count is projected to double every 26.56 days. The most new cases we ever added in a single day was on 11/19/2020 when we added 274 cases.

A close look at the data may appear like the Clinton and McCreary numbers are off today. This is because we moved a case from Clinton to McCreary due to correcting a clerical error.
 
We are reporting 5 deaths today, an 86-year-old female from Clinton who had been a long-term care resident; an 80-year-old male from Clinton who had been a long-term care resident; an 81-year-old male from Clinton who had been recently hospitalized; and, a 88-year-old female from Russell who had been a long-term care resident. We also are reporting a death that occurred on 10/5 that we just found out about, a 72-year old male from Adair (for this patient, the primary cause of death may not have been COVID-19).
 
Not only are deaths on the rise, so too are hospitalizations. We have a record number of hospitalized cases today, 67. Also, all 10 or our district’s 10 counties remain in the “red-critical” range of community-spread.
 
To help understand exponential growth, keep this in mind. It took Lake Cumberland 168 days to get to 1% of our total population having tested positive; 55 additional days to get to 2%; and 21 days to get to 3% of the population having tested positive.
 
It took 66 days to get to 25 deaths; 88 additional days to get to 50; 53 more days to get to 75; and 31 days to get to 100 deaths.
 
It took 125 days to get to 100 hospitalizations; 42 additional days to get to 200; 48 more days to get to 300; and 24 to get to 400 total COVID-19 related hospitalizations.
 
In summary, while our growth rate has continued to progressively pick up steam, for deaths and hospitalizations, there was a slow-down along the way, but both have really accelerated of late. The hospitalization rate is particularly alarming since we desperately do not want our hospital infrastructures to become overwhelmed. If they do, it will not only be COVID-19 patients not getting appropriate care, but patients needing other services as well.
 
We continue to call upon all of our community leaders and citizens to face this challenge with the upmost seriousness before our medical infrastructures are compromised. There is hope! It is within our power to impact the spread of COVID-19. Please, let’s all 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 7,414 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 161,851 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 160,232 statewide plus 1,619 recently reported cases in Lake Cumberland not in the Governor’s Department for Public Health’s daily report).

Governor Andy Beshear Announces The Most Covid Cases On a Sunday

 

Gov. Andy Beshear announced there were 2,194 new cases of the coronavirus, the highest ever for a Sunday, beating the old record by 732, set on Oc. 25.
 

The counties with the most cases reported to state public health officials on Sunday were Jefferson with 515, Fayette 301, Boone 112, Kenton 101, Greenup 60, Campbell 52, Madison 48, Bullitt 43 Hardin 42, and McCracken 41.
 

This brings Kentucky’s total positive COVID-19 cases to 158,100, since the first one was reported on March 6, and the Governor says this past week saw the highest one-week total, topping the previous record by 3,766. The positivity rate also continues to rise, and now stands at 9.19%.
 

Sunday’s current incidence rate map shows 117 of Kentucky’s 120 counties are now in the red zone, meaning at least 25 confirmed cases per 100,000 population over the past seven days.
 

“This upcoming holiday week is a special time for all of our families, and I know everyone wants to have a normal Thanksgiving after such a difficult year,” he stated. “I wish more than anything that we could go back to normal safely, but we can’t. In order to protect our only line of health care workers and all of our fellow Kentuckians, keep gatherings small (eight people or fewer and two households at most), wear a mask, wash your hands and stay six feet apart.”
 

Beshear issued this warning, “If we have a major surge of COVID-19 cases after Thanksgiving, our hospitals will simply not have the capacity to give everyone the care they need. Nothing is worth that risk.”
 

On Sunday, there were 1,533 people reported hospitalized in Kentucky. Of them, 389 were in the ICU and 208 on a ventilator.
 

There were also four new deaths reported, making the pandemic total 1,787. They include a 69-year-old woman from Allen County, a 78-year-old man from Daviess County, an 88-year-old man from McCracken County, and a 62-year-old woman from Ohio County.
 

Taking a wider view of the pandemic, Johns Hopkins University reported on Saturday there have been 58,483,683 confirmed cases worldwide, along with 1,385,499 deaths. In the United States, there have been 12.189,797 confirmed cases along with 256,533 deaths.

Gov. Beshear plans his next live virtual press briefing, Monday afternoon at 4.

 

Covid-19 Cases in Lake Cumberland District

 

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 9.14%.

 

Deaths: We regret we must report 1 new death today. We have experienced a total of 108 deaths resulting in a 1.48% mortality rate (about 1 in 68) among known cases. This compares with a 1.13% mortality rate at the state level, and a 2.1% morality rate at the national level. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones.

 

Hospitalizations: We presently have 61 cases in the hospital. This is 7 more than yesterday. The most hospitalizations we have had at any one time was 61 on 11/22/2020. We have had a total of 462 hospitalizations resulting in a 6.33% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 16) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 5.95%. The latest state data shows that an unreported % of ICU beds and an unreported % of ventilator capacity are being utilized.

 

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 7,296 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 3.49% of our total population have been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested.

 

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 92 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 13; Casey: 11; Clinton: 11; Cumberland: 3; Green: 2; Pulaski: 23; Russell: 4; Taylor: 8; and, Wayne: 17. In all, we have released 83.3% of our total cases.

 

Active (Current) Cases: We added 5 more cases today than we released historic cases. Taking all things into account, this leaves us with 1107 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 11/20/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1126.

 

Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Long-term Care/Residential Facilities, Schools, and Family. Of our active cases, 19% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

 

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 98 today: Adair: 6; Casey: 12; Clinton: 2; Cumberland: 3; Green: 2; McCreary: 7; Pulaski: 26; Russell: 3; Taylor: 27; and, Wayne: 10. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.027. This means our total case count is projected to double every 26.19 days.

The death we report today was a 90-year-old male nursing home resident from Pulaski.

 

We have 6 more active cases today than last Sunday. Last Sunday we added 70 new cases, this Sunday 98. All 10 of our District’s 10 counties remain in the “red-critical” range of community-spread. We also have a record number of hospitalized cases, 61.

 

We continue to call upon all of our community leaders and citizens to face this challenge with the upmost seriousness before our medical infrastructures are compromised. There is hope! It is within our power to impact the spread of COVID-19. Please, let’s all 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 7,296 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 159,673 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 158,100 statewide plus 1,573 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.

 

Leading well in difficult days

 

There's a group of leaders who are usually the most second-guessed in your community. You can find them in the pulpits of churches Sunday after Sunday. While listening to church members' opinions goes with the territory, this year has challenged them in ways beyond imagination.

It happened again this week when Gov. Andy Beshear recommended Thursday that houses of worship shutter indoor services for the next 3-4 weeks. In a pastor's mind, that didn't leave much time for planning.


Some Kentucky Baptist churches are still planning to gather in-person on Sunday, some will be virtual-only, some are offering both options and some are still hosting drive-in services every week.


There isn't a right or wrong answer. But it almost always falls back on the pastor and a small group of church leaders to make these critical decisions.


As we approach this Thanksgiving season, we should find time to be thankful for our godly pastors who have been under so much stress but are determined to move the gospel forward in a time of turmoil.


Considering all that has happened in 2020, people are in desperate need to hear the hope of the gospel. Can there be a better message of comfort for distressed hearts?


Pastors have become more than the shepherd of the flock. They have been the sanctuary sanitizers, the IT experts, and the sounding board of frustration for mask-wearing.


They've opened up conversations between medical officials and public leaders. While it's doctors who care for sick patients, it's usually a pastor who's left to bury them when the end comes. Pastors want their church members to be healthy, which means they must care about their community's health.


It's been a season of polarization for pastors as they do what they think is best for their congregations. Has every decision been perfect? Of course not. But rest assured, pastors have agonized and prayed for guidance on what to do.


That includes the next three to four weeks as the coronavirus rages in Kentucky.


Churches and pastors are better equipped now to have safe in-person services than they were eight months ago. They know how and where to clean, that masks and social distancing can help tamp down the spread, and that the elbow bump is just as good as a handshake.


Can you get the coronavirus at a church service? Sure, you can. No place is safe from this dreaded virus that has disrupted the entire world. It's undoubtedly each individual's choice to come to church, go to the ice cream store, or even a ball game. You determine what's essential.


Pastors have their information sources in their pews with nurses, doctors, or other health officials as members. They value those opinions. They take those decisions seriously, even as they vary from church to church and area to area.


We saw that in a recent story after the governor made the announcement Thursday. Even those who said they were going to meet anyway promised to pray for the governor as he navigates these tricky waters. I'm sure Gov. Beshear is like our pastors in adding a few more gray hairs since March, and he does need our prayers.


Our Kentucky Baptist pastors may not have the cure for the coronavirus, but they know the cure for the human heart. May they continue to be "super-spreaders" of the gospel cure that brings ultimate healing.

Americans most thankful for and to family this Thanksgiving

NASHVILLE (BP) – Even though the pandemic may change Thanksgiving celebrations this year, Americans still express thankfulness for their family and friends.


According to a survey from Nashville-based LifeWay Research, more than 4 in 5 Americans (84 percent) say they are thankful for their family.


Sizable majorities also note being thankful for health (69 percent), friends (63 percent) and memories (63 percent).


Around half point to personal freedom (53 percent) and stability (47 percent). More than 2 in 5 are thankful for fun experiences (45 percent) and opportunities (42 percent).


A third of Americans will spend Thanksgiving being grateful for their achievements (33 percent), while 1 in 5 (21 percent) express thankfulness for their wealth.


The average person chose five things on the list for which they are thankful.


“In a year that has been difficult for most, Americans still express a lot of thanks,” said Scott McConnell, executive director of LifeWay Research. “This year of loss and division does not mean people have an absence of good things for which to be grateful.”


Compared to a 2016 LifeWay Research survey, fewer Americans expressed thankfulness for almost all of the options.


Four years ago, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent social distancing guidelines and regulations, more Americans said they were thankful for health (77 percent to 69 percent in 2020) and personal freedom (72 percent to 53 percent).


Other choices that also saw significant decreases from 2016 to 2020 include friends (71 percent to 63 percent), opportunities (59 percent to 42 percent), fun experiences (53 percent to 45 percent), achievements (51 percent to 33 percent) and wealth (32 percent to 21 percent).


Compared to other Americans, those with evangelical beliefs are more likely to say they are thankful for family (90 percent to 82 percent), health (80 percent to 66 percent), personal freedoms (69 percent to 50 percent), memories (68 percent to 61 percent), stability (56 percent to 45 percent), opportunities (56 percent to 38 percent) and achievements (38 percent to 31 percent).


Thankful to whom?


When Americans give thanks on the last Thursday of November, most say they express their gratitude toward their family and God.


Around 2 in 3 say they typically give thanks to family (68 percent) and God (67 percent), while 42 percent say they are grateful to their friends.


Fewer say they are thankful to themselves (16 percent) and fate (10 percent). Even fewer say they don’t give thanks (4 percent).


“Giving someone else thanks is not a given on Thanksgiving,” said McConnell. “But four times as many people give thanks to family or God than choose to thank themselves.”


This year, both family and friends saw 11-point jumps from 2016 when 57 percent were thankful to family and 31 percent to friends.


Thankfulness to myself (8 percent in 2016 to 16 percent) and fate (4 percent to 10 percent) also grew substantially in the past four years.


The percentage of those who say they are thankful to God in 2020 (67 percent) is similar to that of 2016 (63 percent).


Among self-identified Christians, those who attend worship services weekly are the most likely to express thanksgiving toward God this time of year (94 percent).


Those with evangelical beliefs are more likely than other Americans to say they are thankful to God (96 percent to 60 percent).


Protestants (83 percent) are more likely than Catholics (72 percent) and those belonging to other religions (62 percent). A third of religiously unaffiliated Americans (32 percent) are grateful to God on Thanksgiving.


Younger Americans are more likely to say they are thankful to themselves than older Americans.


A quarter of those aged 18 to 34 (24 percent) and 19 percent of 35- to 49-year-olds say they thank themselves on Thanksgiving, compared to 9 percent of those aged 50 to 64 and 6 percent of Americans 65 and older.

It’s been our most challenging week since the onset of the outbreak — our most challenging week by far. At both the state and local level, record numbers of new cases were added. Last week Lake Cumberland added 886 new cases, this week, 1,204. Last Saturday, we had 981 active cases, today, 1,102. Last week we had 40 hospitalized cases on Saturday, today 54 (which ties for our most hospitalizations at any given time). We also experienced 11 deaths this week. Finally, all 10 of our district’s 10 counties remain solidly in the “red-critical” range of community-spread.

At our present growth-rate, our total cases will double in 26 days. Imagine all the death and hospitalizations we’ve had up until this point potentially doubling in just 26 days. Imagine all the pain and suffering we’ve endured since March repeating itself, not in 8 and half months, but in 28 days.

We continue to call upon all of our community leaders and citizens to face this challenge with the upmost seriousness before our medical infrastructures are compromised. There is hope! It is within our power to impact the spread of COVID-19. Please, let’s all 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 7,198 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 157,430 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 155,908 statewide plus 1,522 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.

Buckle Up for the Holiday Season

Thanksgiving weekend is traditionally one of the heaviest traveled holidays across the country. Kentucky State Police (KSP) announced today that they will step up patrols as part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ‘Click It or Ticket’ Thanksgiving enforcement initiative. These efforts will target seat belt usage with an added focus on impaired driving and commercial vehicle safety.  

“We want all Kentuckians to be safe this Thanksgiving, not only from COVID-19, but on our roads as well,” said Gov. Andy Beshear. “Please limit travel this year in general, but if you are driving, buckle up and watch your speed. I appreciate all of our law enforcement officers who may spend this holiday away from their own families in order to keep other Kentuckians safe.”

KSP Spokesman Sergeant Billy Gregory says the agency will utilize federal overtime funds to increase the number of troopers and officers on roadways. “High visibility enforcement is a universal traffic safety approach designed to deter motorists from unsafe driving behaviors,” notes Gregory. “Often times during the holidays, drivers are so focused on getting to their family gatherings that they tend to forget about traffic safety. Seeing our patrol cars out there on the roadways is a great reminder to buckle up and slow down.”

Gregory says Kentuckians should be commended for regularly wearing their seat belts, as the commonwealth currently has an 89.7 percent usage rate. “While this is positive for our state, we have traditionally seen an increase in impaired driving during holiday festivities. If you plan to serve alcohol at your family gathering this year, we encourage people to plan ahead and arrange for sober rides home.”

The ‘Click It or Ticket’ campaign coincides with Operation C.A.R.E. (Crash Awareness and Reduction Effort), a national enforcement effort, scheduled to take place during the four-day holiday driving season beginning November 25 at 6 p.m. to November 29, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. These joint efforts across the country encourage drivers to buckle up and refrain from impaired driving.

“The best defense against an impaired driver is wearing a seat belt,” adds Gregory. “At the end of the day it’s not about writing tickets, it’s about you and your family members arriving home safely.”

According to the Kentucky Traffic Collision Facts Report, the four-day Thanksgiving holiday travel period accounted for 1,253 collisions with five fatal crashes in 2019.

Governor Asking Houses Of Worship To Stop Indoor Services For Weeks

 

Gov. Andy Beshear is asking all religious leaders across the state to immediately suspend in-person services at their houses of worship for the next three to four weeks.


The governor did not call or meet with leaders of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, the state’s largest denomination of churches, but did speak with the Kentucky Council of Churches during a regular weekly call. The KBC is not affiliated in any way with that organizatrion.


Beshear asked churches within the Kentucky Council of Churches to consider having virtual services for the next three or four Sundays. But he said during the Thursday press conference it goes for any house of worship.


Dr. Todd Gray, the executive director-treasurer of the KBC, said Kentucky Baptist pastors have been careful and cautious from the beginning of the pandemic.


“Kentucky Baptist pastors and churches are doing a model job of self-regulating as we continue dealing with the COVID pandemic,” he said. “They are monitoring the news and the number of cases in their communities and making adjustments as needed. They continue to make decisions based on the well-being of the congregation they serve. I am certain these godly leaders will continue to do the same in light of this most recent request from our governor.”


Beshear said he has regular meetings with the Kentucky Council of Churches.  He backed up his decision by saying there were examples of houses of worship being a virus spreader.


“The virus is spreading so fast right now and I think we have at least 35 examples in the last six weeks of spread in and around a house of worship, not just worship services but potlucks and others,” Beshear said. “My recommendation to them (the Kentucky Council of Churches) was to do virtual-only services through the same period that we are asking other people to certainly change the way they’re doing things. That will be starting on Friday and through the end of Sunday, Dec. 13."


Kentucky reported its highest one-day case total with 3,649 new cases and 30 new deaths.


It is a request and not a mandate, he said, like what was issued in March that a federal court ruled as unconstitutional. Beshear came under harsh criticism in the spring for that decision.


“It is a request but, I tell you what, I think the vast majority of houses of worship out there are already doing this seeing what’s going on in their community," he said. "They want to protect their congregations and our faith leaders have been so incredible in their leadership during this in protecting their congregation, but in also pastoring to them and helping people through the anxiety and difficulty who are questioning why us and why this?"


Beshear said if churches choose to meet that doing so in a drive-up service or where they are outside is the best option.


"Certainly drive-up services can be really safe but try not to encourage or let people get out of their cars.” he said.


The governor mandated some restrictions on Wednesday to stop the third surge of the coronavirus in Kentucky, including closing public and private schools from Nov. 23 until January, eliminating indoor seating at restaurants and bars until Dec. 13, limiting private indoor social gatherings to two households and eight people, and limiting venues for weddings and funerals to 25.


Gray is confident in the decisions that Kentucky Baptist pastors will make for their own churches.


“Kentucky Baptist pastors love the people that God has called them to shepherd and will exercise great wisdom while providing for the essential spiritual needs of their congregation, as well as reaching out with the gospel to those who do not yet know Christ.”


Gray understands the virus has had terrible consequences for many. “Kentucky Baptists continue to pray for those impacted by COVID-19 and for a vaccine to soon be approved and delivered,” he said.

 

Adams' Changes Gain Strong Support From County Clerks In Survey

Secretary of State Michael Adams has more support in his effort to have some of the changes made to the way elections were conducted this year made permanent by the Kentucky General Assembly next year.


In an interview with Kentucky Today shortly after the November general election, Adams, a Republican, said there were four items he hopes lawmakers consider after he and Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear developed the plan and issued executive orders on conducting the election, during the coronavirus pandemic.


Adams, the state’s chief election officer, announced Friday that a survey he took of Kentucky’s 120 county clerks, who are the local officials responsible for conducting elections, support his proposals.


Of the 115 county clerks who responded to Secretary Adams’ survey:


--79% want to keep in-person early voting.


--92% support keeping “vote centers” (centralized locations where any county resident can vote) if on a voluntary basis by county, and 63% support vote centers being required.


--70% favor keeping a signature cure process for absentee ballots, giving voters a chance to correct errors with their ballots.


--89% support keeping the absentee ballot request portal, where voters can apply online and have an absentee ballot mailed to them.


“From day one, I’ve actively consulted with county clerks of both political parties as I develop election policy,” Adams said. “I’m so pleased that, by overwhelming margins, the county clerks agree with the four main tenets of the election reform legislation I’m preparing for the General Assembly to consider.”


During his Kentucky Today Interview, Adams explained his support for each of the four topics.


Regarding early voting: “I don’t think we need three weeks for every election.  But a few days would really help take the pressure off voters to show up in a 12-hour span on one day, which is a workday.  Saturday voting was very popular.”


On countywide voting centers: “It really helps [county clerks] need fewer locations and fewer pill workers to run their elections and also saves them money, they’ve told me.  They like that model better than the old-fashioned model.  I don’t want to eliminate all precinct voting, but I do want to see at least some use of vote centers.”  


The absentee voting portal: “We’re going to have more absentee balloting than we’ve had in the past.  Even if we don’t change the law to expand absentee voting, more voters are going to use it, because now they’re familiar with it and they like it.”


For the absentee ballot cure process: It really helped re-enfranchise voters of both parties, if you give them a chance to fix an honest mistake that they didn’t know they made before you throw the ballots in the garbage can.”


The 2021 General Assembly convenes in January.

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 9.15%.

Deaths: We are sad to report 3 new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 107 deaths resulting in a 1.53% mortality rate (about 1 in 65) among known cases. This compares with a 1.16% mortality rate at the state level, and a 2.14% morality rate at the national level. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones.

Hospitalizations: We presently have 53 cases in the hospital. This is 5 more than yesterday. The most hospitalizations we have had at any one time was 54 on 11/07/2020. We have had a total of 453 hospitalizations resulting in a 6.46% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 15) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 6.1%. The latest state data shows that 71.29% of ICU beds and unreported % of ventilator capacity are being utilized.

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 7,010 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 3.36% of our total population have been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested.

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 143 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 22; Casey: 9; Clinton: 20; Cumberland: 5; Green: 5; McCreary: 4; Pulaski: 37; Russell: 4; Taylor: 15; and, Wayne: 22. In all, we have released 82.4% of our total cases.

Active (Current) Cases: We added 16 more cases today than we released historic cases. Taking all things into account, this leaves us with 1126 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 11/20/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1126.

Where Did Cases Visit Pior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Long-term Care/Residential Facilities, Schools, and Family. Of our active cases, 14% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 162 today: Adair: 13; Casey: 17; Clinton: 8; Cumberland: 4; Green: 10; McCreary: 10; Pulaski: 63; Russell: 8; Taylor: 14; and, Wayne: 15. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.027. This means our total case count is projected to double every 26.3 days.

A close look at the numbers may appear that Russell and Adair are off. That is because one case from yesterday was moved from Russell to Adair.

We are sad to have to report 3 deaths today: a 97-year-old female from Clinton; a 90-year-old male from Pulaski; and a 81-year-old male from Casey. We continue to have a higher than state average mortality rate.

We agin have a record number of active cases, 1,126. All 10 of our counties remain solidly in the “red-critical” range of community-spread.

There is hope! It is within our power to impact the spread of COVID-19 before our medical infratructures become overwhelmed. Citizens, commuinty-leaders, church-leaders, let’s step-up or game. Please, let’s everyone 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 7,010 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 153,651 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 152,206 statewide plus 1,445 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.

48-Year-Old Russell Co. Man Dies of COVID-19; 274 New Cases in Lake Cumberland District...

 

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 9.18%.

 

Deaths: We regret we must report 1 new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 104 deaths resulting in a 1.52% mortality rate (about 1 in 66) among known cases. This compares with a 1.17% mortality rate at the state level, and a 2.16% morality rate at the national level. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones.

 

Hospitalizations: We presently have 48 cases in the hospital. This is 4 less than yesterday. The most hospitalizations we have had at any one time was 53 on 11/07/2020. We have had a total of 441 hospitalizations resulting in a 6.44% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 16) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 6.17%. The latest state data shows that 71.29% of ICU beds and unreported % of ventilator capacity are being utilized.

 

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 6,848 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 3.28% of our total population have been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested.

 

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 179 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 11; Casey: 10; Clinton: 11; Cumberland: 7; Green: 15; McCreary: 6; Pulaski: 47; Russell: 21; Taylor: 34; and, Wayne: 17. In all, we have released 82.3% of our total cases.

 

Active (Current) Cases: We added 94 more cases today than we released historic cases. Taking all things into account, this leaves us with 1110 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 11/19/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1110.

 

Where Did Cases Visit Pior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Long-term Care/Residential Facilities, Schools, and Family. Of our active cases, 14% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

 

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 274 today: Adair: 9; Casey: 21; Clinton: 10; Cumberland: 16; Green: 17; McCreary: 17; Pulaski: 99; Russell: 33; Taylor: 33; and, Wayne: 19. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.027. This means our total case count is projected to double every 25.71 days. The most new cases we ever added in a single day was on 11/19/2020 when we added 274 cases.

The death we announce today was a 48-year-old male from Russell.

 

We shattered yesterday’s new case record! Yesteday we added 191 cases, today 274. We also have a record number of active cases, 1,110. All 10 of our counties remain solidly in the “red-critical” range of community-spread. Unfortunately, the massive exponential growth we warned everyone about is here. All of the complacency, skepticism, and insistence that the gudiance doesn’t apply to us or our situation has caught up with us. Unfortunately, and bewilderingly, while many will face this challenge and do what is necessary, some will still cast doubt and resist efforts to slow the spread of this devestating disease.

 

There is hope! It is within our power to impact the spread of COVID-19 before our medical infratructures become overwhelmed. Citizens, commuinty-leaders, church-leaders, let’s step-up or game. Please, let’s everyone 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 6,848 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 149,808 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 148,390 statewide plus 1,418 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.

Governor Andy Beshear Announces Restrictions

 
By TOM LATEK, Kentucky Today
 

FRANKFORT, Ky. (KT) --  Kentuckians are bracing for a new round of Covid-19 related restrictions, following Gov. Andy Beshear’s Wednesday press conference. Most of the restrictions go into effect Friday and will last for three weeks.

Beshear prefaced his announcement by saying, “When addressing COVID-19, action is unpopular, but inaction is deadly.”

 

The restrictions go into effect on Friday, November 20 at 5:00 p.m. local time and run through 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, December 13. They include:
 

  • Restaurants, Bars – No indoor food or beverage consumption; carryout and delivery encouraged as is socially distanced outdoor seating.
     
  • Private social gatherings – Up to 8 people from a maximum of two households.
     
  • Gyms, fitness centers, pools, other indoor recreation facilities – 33% capacity limit; group classes, team practices and competitions prohibited; masks must be worn while exercising.
     
  • Venues, event spaces and theaters – Each room will be limited to 25 people. This applies to indoor weddings and funerals but excludes in-person worship services, for which the Governor will provide recommendations Thursday.
     
  • Professional services – Office-based businesses limited to 33% of employees; all employees who are able to work from home must do so; all businesses that can close to the public must do so.
     
  • Schools – All public and private schools (K -12) to cease in-person instruction:
    • Middle and high schools will remain in remote or virtual instruction until at least Jan. 4, 2021.
       
    • Elementary schools may reopen for in-person instruction on Dec. 7, if their county is not in the red zone and the school follows all Healthy at School guidance.
       

To help offset the financial impact on restaurants and bars, the Governor also announced he is dedicating $40 million in CARES Act funding to provide qualifying entities $10,000 in relief for various expenses, with a maximum award of $20,000 per business entity.
 

Businesses with at least 50% of their sales via drive-through will not be eligible.  To focus on locally owned businesses, publicly traded companies are not eligible to apply.  Applications are scheduled to open on Nov. 30 and close on Dec. 18.  Businesses will be required to remain in compliance with all public health orders.  Applications will be processed in the order they are received, and funds will be awarded until they are exhausted.  Additional details on where to apply will be forthcoming.
 

Earlier this month, the Governor also waived alcoholic beverage renewal fees for Kentucky restaurants, bars and temporary venues for 12 months to help during the pandemic. 
 

Beshear reported 2,753 new positive cases of COVID-19 for Wednesday, the 4th highest single-day number, according to the Governor.  “Our top five highest days ever in this virus pandemic, have all been in the last week.”
 

He said 292 of those cases were among those who are age 18 and under, bringing the total number of positive cases in Kentucky to 144,753, since the first one was reported on March 6.

Gov. Beshear will hold his final scheduled virtual press briefing of the week Thursday afternoon at 4:00.

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 9.13%.

 

Deaths: We are sad to report 3 new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 103 deaths resulting in a 1.57% mortality rate (about 1 in 64) among known cases. This compares with a 1.18% mortality rate at the state level, and a 2.18% morality rate at the national level. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones.

 

Hospitalizations: We presently have 52 cases in the hospital. This is 1 less than yesterday. The most hospitalizations we have had at any one time was 54 on 11/07/2020. We have had a total of 437 hospitalizations resulting in a 6.65% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 15) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 6.25%. The latest state data shows that 76.64% of ICU beds and unreported % of ventilator capacity are being utilized.

 

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 6,574 cases since the onset of the outbreak.

We are sad to have to report 3 additional deaths today: an 82-year-old male from Clinton; an 88-year-old male from Russell who had been hospitalized; and, a 51 year-old-male from Russell. Right now our data shows that 1 in 64 people who contract COVID-19 will die from it. Our mortality rate remains higher than the state average.

 

We broke two records today. Our new cases today were 205, beating yesterday’s record of 191. We also have the most active cases since the onset of the outbreak at 1,016. At our present growth rate, we expect our total cases to double in the next 28 days. Imagine all of the cases, hospitalizations, and death we have endured since March being condensed into the next 28 days! All of our health systems face the very real possiblity of being severely overwhelmed. All 10 of our counties remain in the “red-critical” range of community-spread, with all counties facing increasing numbers.

 

Today, Governor Beshear took necessary steps to slow the spread of COVID-19. Obviously, what we are doing at the moment isn’t working. He stated there will not be a shutdown, as he announced the new steps listed below. These steps are for a 3-6 week in duration. Starting this Friday November 20th at 5:00 pm and lasting through December 13th at 11:59 pm, the new restrictions via Executive Order include:

  • Indoor social gatherings: should be limited to your current household plus one other household, equaling to 8 people or less per household,
  • Indoor venues, event spaces or theatres: no more than 25 people per room (includes funerals and weddings). This does not include places of worship, but he will release recommendations in regard to these types of establishments soon.
  • Restaurants and bars: closed to indoor dining. The public should use delivery or to-go options, and outdoor service only. A $40 million federal fund will be launched to assist restaurants and bars that are impacted. Entities that qualify will receive $10,000 to use for various costs. Businesses that receive 50% of their business via drive-thru will not qualify. These funds are more geared towards the “mom and pop” establishments.
  • Gyms, fitness centers, and pools: must maintain 6-feet spacing, group classes are prohibited, and should remain at 33% capacity. Masking will be required. When possible, businesses should allow employees to work from home.
  • Schools: all public and private schools (K-12) cease in-person instruction beginning November 23rd. Middle and high schools will remain in remote instruction until January 4, 2021. Elementary schools may reopen on December 7th, if their county is not in the red zone and the school follows all Healthy At School guidance.

Please, let’s step-up our efferts and everyone 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 6,574 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 146,057 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 144,753 statewide plus 1,304 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.

We are sad to have to report 4 deaths today, a 71-year-old male from Casey, who had been hospitalized; an 83-year-old female from Clinton, who had been hospitalized; an 86-year-old male from Clinton, who was long-term care resident; and, a 74-year old male from Wayne who had been hospitalized. At our current mortality rate about 1 in 62 people who contract COVID-19 will die from it.

 

Also, local data reveals that about 1 in 15 people who contract COVID-19 will be hospitalized. I spoke with a regional hospital director today who informed me that our area hospital capacity is becoming a very real concern. It isn’t just a space issue, but also a staffing issue. With COVID-19 being so wide-spread now in our area, state, and nation, there simply isn’t enough medical staff to meet the increasing demand. When the added COVID-19 demand is combined with the usual seasonal surge in inpatient care, the numbers are looking grim. Plus, the hospitals to which our area would generally refer overflow patients to – such as those in Lexington and Louisville – are also becoming full. At our present growth rate, our COVID-19 numbers are expected to double in just under a month. This means that two systems, the public health and hospital systems, which are already taxed to near capacity, will potentially face an overwhelming demand. In other words, it is past time for everyone to step-up their COVID-19 precautions.

 

For the first time in a while the local numbers are caught up enough so that the state and local incidence maps match. So, by both state and local numbers, we have 9 of our 10 counties in the “red-critical” range of community-spread. Only McCreary is in the “orange-accelerated” range, and it is 1 case per 100,000 away from also being in the red.

 

It is within our power to impact the spread of COVID-19. Businesses and schools should carefully follow the COVID-19 guidance. Too often we hear justification as to why the guidance shouldn’t apply to their situations. Also, we as citizens need to step-up their compliance with masking and social distancing. Please, let’s all 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 6,178 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 140,246 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 139,097 statewide plus 1,149 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.

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 8.88%.

 

Deaths: We are happy to report no new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 96 deaths resulting in a 1.58% mortality rate (about 1 in 63) among known cases. This compares with a 1.21% mortality rate at the state level, and a 2.24% morality rate at the national level.

We have had a total of 408 hospitalizations resulting in a 6.73% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 15) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 6.38%. The latest state data shows that 72.46% of ICU beds and 32.64% of ventilator capacity are being utilized.

 

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 6,064 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 2.9% of our total population have been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested.

 

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 156 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 24; Casey: 13; Clinton: 4; Cumberland: 5; Green: 4; McCreary: 3; Pulaski: 75; Russell: 13; and, Taylor: 15. In all, we have released 83.6% of our total cases.

 

Active (Current) Cases: We released 86 more cases today than we added new cases. Taking all things into account, this leaves us with 899 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 11/14/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 984.

 

Where Did Cases Visit Pior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Family, Schools, and Long-term Care/Residential Facilities. Of our active cases, 14% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

The surge is so great at the moment, the health department is falling behing on case investigations and contact tracing. As of today, we are 2 to 4 days behind. We are also behind in entering data into the state system causing the numbers the new cases the Governor reports and the number of counties he reports as being in the “red-critical” range of community-spread is off. Even still, with the numbers we can verify locally we have nine of our district’s ten counties in the “red-critical” range of community-spread: Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, Pulaski, Russell, Taylor, and Wayne. This leaves only McCreary in the “orange-accelerated” range.

 

We call upon our citizens and community leaders to step-up your efforts in regards to COVID-19. Please, let’s all 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 6,064 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 138,686 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 137,586 statewide plus 1,100 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.

A close look at the data will show that our new cases went up by 163 but our total cases only went up by 162. That is because we removed one case from a prior day.

 

This has been our most difficult week since the onset of the outbreak. As of today, we have a record number of active cases, 985. This is 234 more than last Saturday. At both the state on the local level we experienced a record number of new cases. We add 866 new cases this week, compared to 631 last week. We also experienced 11 deaths this week. Also, our hospitalization rate of 6.79 means that about 1 out of every 15 cases will become hospitalized. The surge is so great at the moment, the health department is falling behing on case investigations and contact tracing. As of today, we are 2 to 4 days behind. We are also behind in entering data into the state system causing the numbers the new cases the Governor reports and the number of counties he reports as being in the “red-critical” range of community-spread is off. Even still, with the numbers we can verify locally we have nine of our district’s ten counties in the “red-critical” range of community-spread: Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, Pulaski, Russell, Taylor, and Wayne. This leaves only McCreary in the “orange-accelerated” range.

 

We call upon our citizens and community leaders to step-up your efforts in regards to COVID-19. Please don’t wait until one of your loved ones dies or is hospitalized to take this seriously. Please, let’s all 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 5,994 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 137,251 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 136,137 statewide plus 1,114 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.

 

TAYLOR CO. COVID-19 DEATH; 158 NEW CASES IN LAKE CUMB. DISTRICT....

 

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 8.68%.

 

Deaths: We are sad to report 1 new death today. We have experienced a total of 96 deaths resulting in a 1.65% mortality rate (about 1 in 61) among known cases. This compares with a 1.24% mortality rate at the state level, and a 2.28% morality rate at the national level. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones.

 

Hospitalizations: We presently have 45 cases in the hospital. This is 3 less than yesterday. The most hospitalizations we have had at any one time was 55 on 11/07/2020. We have had a total of 405 hospitalizations resulting in a 6.94% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 14) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 6.51%. The latest state data shows that 71.92% of ICU beds and 31.26% of ventilator capacity are being utilized.

 

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 5,832 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 2.79% of our total population have been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested.

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 102 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 11; Casey: 15; Green: 9; McCreary: 5; Pulaski: 51; Russell: 8; Taylor: 2; and, Wayne: 1. In all, we have released 82.4% of our total cases.

 

Active (Current) Cases: We added 55 more cases today than we released historic cases. Taking all things into account, this leaves us with 932 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 11/13/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 932.

 

Where Did Cases Visit Pior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Schools, Family, and Long-term Care/Residential Facilities. Of our active cases, 17% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

 

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 158 today: Adair: 20; Casey: 7; Clinton: 29; Cumberland: 11; Green: 11; McCreary: 7; Pulaski: 22; Russell: 15; Taylor: 15; and, Wayne: 21. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.021. This means our total case count is projected to double every 32.71 days. The most new cases we ever added in a single day was on 11/11/2020 when we added 190 cases.

A close look at the data will show that our new cases went up by 160 but our total cases only went up by 158. That is because we removed some duplicates from days prior.

 

We are reporting 1 death in Taylor, an 85-year-old famale. We are at a record number of active cases in our district at 932. We also are about 4 days behind in case investigations and/or contact tracing. Even still, with the numbers we can report we have nine of our district’s ten counties in the “red-critical” range of community-spread: Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, Pulaski, Russell, Taylor, and Wayne. This leaves only McCreary in the “orange-accelerated” range.

We call upon our citizens and community leaders to step-up your efforts in regards to COVID-19. Please don’t wait until one of your loved ones dies or is hospitalized to take this seriously. Please, let’s all 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 5,832 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 133,920 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 132,844 statewide plus 1,076 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.

Motorcycle Crash Kills Russell County Man

 

Trooper Matt Brumley is investigating a motorcycle fatality that occurred Thursday, November 12, 2020 on north US 127 near the Russell-Casey County line. Preliminary investigations indicate that Austyn Deel, age 22 of Russell Springs, KY was operating a 2003 Kawasaki motorcycle southbound on US 127 when he attempted to overtake several vehicles and ran off the roadway striking an earth embankment. Deel was not wearing a helmet and transported to the Russell County Hospital where he was pronounced deceased a short time later. Trooper Brumley was assisted at the scene by additional KSP personnel, Russell County EMS, and the Russell County Sheriff’s Department.

A close look at the data may appear off by 2. We removed two duplicates from yesterday.

 

We are reporting 1 death in Russell today, an 81-year-old male who had been hospitalized.

 

While we continue to get caught up on our backlog of cases, we remain approximately 3 days behind. Even still, with the numbers we can report we have nine of our district’s ten counties in the “red-critical” range of community-spread: Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, Pulaski, Russell, Taylor, and Wayne. This leaves only McCreary in the “orange-accelerated” range.

 

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 5,674 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 130,719 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 129,680 statewide plus 1,039 recently reported cases in Lake Cumberland not in the Governor’s Department for Public Health’s daily report).

The 2 deaths we report today are a 62-year-old female from Adair who had been hospitalized; and, a 57-year-old male from Adair who had been hospitalized.

 

Wow! We exceeded our single-day new cases record by 79 today, adding 192 cases. We also surpassed our highest active-case record by 114. We now have 872 active cases. We are experiencing large growth, and more frequent deaths and hospitalizations. While we continue to get caught up on our backlog of cases, we remain approximately 3 days behind. Even still, with the numbers we can report we have nine of our district’s ten counties in the “red-critical” range of community-spread: Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, Pulaski, Russell, Taylor, and Wayne. This leaves only McCreary in the “orange-accelerated” range.

 

We make this plea, let’s all 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 5,551 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 128,376 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 127,344 statewide plus 1,032 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.

 

Covid-19 Cases in The Lake Cumberland District

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 7.68%.

Deaths: We regret we must report 2 new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 92 deaths resulting in a 1.72% mortality rate (about 1 in 58) among known cases. This compares with a 1.25% mortality rate at the state level, and a 2.34% morality rate at the national level. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones.

Hospitalizations: We presently have 43 cases in the hospital. This is 1 less than yesterday. The most hospitalizations we have had at any one time was 50 on 11/06/2020. We have had a total of 382 hospitalizations resulting in a 7.13% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 14) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 6.74%. The latest state data shows that 71.44% of ICU beds and 31.56% of ventilator capacity are being utilized.

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 5,358 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 2.56% of our total population have been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested.

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 99 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 18; Casey: 18; Clinton: 2; Cumberland: 2; Green: 7; McCreary: 7; Pulaski: 20; Russell: 5; Taylor: 7; and, Wayne: 13. In all, we have released 84.2% of our total cases.

Active (Current) Cases: We added 2 more cases today than we released historic cases. Taking all things into account, this leaves us with 753 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 11/06/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 759.

Where Did Cases Visit Pior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Schools, Businesses, Family, and Long-term Care/Residential Facilities. Of our cases, 23% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 103 today: Adair: 16; Casey: 8; Clinton: 8; Cumberland: 1; Green: 6; McCreary: 3; Pulaski: 23; Russell: 11; Taylor: 19; and, Wayne: 8. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.019. This means our total case count is projected to double every 37.75 days.

Taylor County Man Faces Drug and Firearm Charges

 

On Tuesday, November 3, 2020 the Columbia Area Drug Task Force executed a state search warrant at 1629 East Broadway Lot 6 in Campbellsville, KY as a result of an 8-month long investigation into the distribution of methamphetamine, heroin, fentanyl, cocaine, and prescription narcotics in and around Taylor County.  In addition to evidence of drug trafficking, law enforcement seized 5 handguns from the residence, one of which had recently been reported stolen.

 

Dennis James Carrier, 42, of Taylor County was subsequently arrested on state charges and is currently being held on Federal Indictment for Possession with the Intent to Distribute Fentanyl, Possession of a Firearm by a Prohibited Person, Possession of a Firearm in Furtherance of a Drug Trafficking Offense, and Distribution of Methamphetamine.

 

The Columbia Area Drug Task Force includes detectives from the Kentucky State Police Drug Enforcement Special Investigation Branch, the Campbellsville Police Department and the Columbia Police Department.  The task force was assisted by members of the Kentucky State Police Post 15, the Taylor County Sheriff’s Department, the Marion County Sheriff’s Department, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

 

 

 

 

Approving Supervisor: Lt. Shannon Wilson

Campbellsville Police to participate in 'Click It or Ticket' enforcement campaign....

 

 

As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, Campbellsville Police is reminding motorists to Click It or Ticket.

 

The annual campaign is part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) high-visibility enforcement effort that runs from November 16 through November 29.  Aimed at increasing seat belt use, the campaign runs concurrent with one of the busiest travel seasons of the year.

 

“Our law enforcement personnel see firsthand severe injuries or loss of life when people do not buckle up,” said Lt. Shannon Wilson. “It’s such a simple act, and hope it becomes the automatic next step for all motorists after sitting down in a vehicle.”

 

“If the enforcement crackdown wakes people up to the dangers of unrestrained driving and gets them to buckle up, we’ll consider it a success.”

 

“Please, help us spread this life-saving message before one more friend or family member is killed as a result of this senseless inaction,” said Lt. Shannon Wilson. “Seat belts save lives, and everyone—front seat and back, child and adult—needs to remember to buckle up…every trip, every time.”

 

According to NHTSA, when worn correctly, seat belts reduce the risk of fatalities by 45 percent for front-seat vehicle occupants and by 60 percent for pickup truck, SUV and minivan occupants.

We are so sorry to have to announce 5 deaths today. Today we lost a 77-year-old male from Adair who had been hospitalized; a 88-year-old male from Adair; a 99-year-old male from Casey who had been hospitalized; a 74-year-old male from Clinton who had been hospitalized; and, a 80-year-old female from Russell who had been hospitalized.

 

We still have nine of our district’s ten counties in the “red-critical” range of community-spread: Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, Pulaski, Russell, Taylor, and Wayne. This leaves only McCreary in the “orange-accelerated” range.

Despite the high numbers we can officially report, due to the surge of new cases the high numbers of contacts associated with each, we have MANY, MANY cases not reported as their investigations have not been finalized. We have every employee working on COVID-19 and are hiring staff as quickly as we can, be we cannot keep pace with this volume of cases.

 

Therefore we implore, please, please, let’s all 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 5,255 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 123,411 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 122,567 statewide plus 844 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.

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.

Wayne: A 66-year-old male who is self-isolated, asymptomatic

A close look at the data may appear that the numbers are off by 1. This is because we removed a case from yesterday. Our case numbers remain very high, both new cases and a record number of active cases. We are also at our peak number of hospitalized cases at 43. One in every 14 people from our district who contract COVID-19 end up hospitalized.

The death we report today is a 92-year-old female from Clinton. Our mortality rate for COVID-19 remains high, killing about 1 in 59 cases.

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.

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 5,029 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 118,202 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 117,505 statewide plus 697 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 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.
