Lake Cumberland District is at full capacity with ICU Beds

Some concerning news on the COVID-19 front as the Lake Cumberland District Health Department has announced that the district is at full capacity with intensive care unit beds.

Here’s the information contained in the latest report from LCDHD.

Of an alarming note, 100% of our district’s ICU capacity is currently being utilized. Also, it is becoming quite difficult to find an in-state hospital to which patients can be transferred. New cases are still high in our area so 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.
