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 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 7,651 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.
