We are happy to report no new cases today and no new deaths or hospitalizations. We released one from self-isolation (recovered). We have now released 86% of our active cases.
The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 218 Cumulative Confirmed Cases and there have been 9,077 Confirmed COVID-19 cases across 117 Kentucky Counties as of 05/27/20 (this includes 9,077 statewide plus 0 recently reported cases in Lake Cumberland not in the Governor’s daily report). Regardless of the confirmed case count for any Lake Cumberland County, we believe COVID-19 to be widespread. LCDHD is working to identify and contact all those with whom any positive case may have come into close contact.
Today we held our weekly media/public live COVID-19 update via our YouTube Channel. You can watch the video there at https://www.youtube.com/c/LCDHDPublicHealth. Go to Videos > Uploads > Live Videos. Either this week or early next week we plan to hand-deliver current guidance to all businesses to ensure compliance.
