Russell stays ‘green’; Casey, nearly 50 others now ‘yellow’

Russell County and most of the Lake Cumberland district continue to stay in the green category, or low level of spread, on the latest COVID-19 map released by the Kentucky Department of Public Health.

Neighboring Casey County continues to be the only county in the 10-county district in yellow this week, indicating a medium level of spread.

A total of 48 Kentucky counties are in the yellow, up from 15 last week, and there are currently 10 counties in the state in the red category, which indicates the highest level of spread. That’s up from three from one week ago.

The remainder of Kentucky counties were labeled green, or as having a low level of COVID-19 spread.
