The Lake Cumberland District Health Department (LCDHD) at the current time has experienced
100 Positive/Presumptive Positive cases in our 10-county district.
We now have 37 residents and 7 staff who have tested positive for COVID-19 at Summit Manor Nursing Home in Adair County. District Director Shawn Crabtree said Friday the nursing home had around 71 residents, which means more than half of them have been affected by the novel coronavirus.
The Lake Cumberland District Health Department (LCDHD) at the current time has experienced 100 Positive/Presumptive Positive cases in our 10-county district. Regardless of the confirmed case count for any Lake Cumberland County, we believe COVID-19 to be widespread. LCDHD is working with the Kentucky Department for Public Health to identify and contact all those who may have come in contact with them.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person:
• Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
• Respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
• Droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled
into the lungs
