Comunicado de Prensa

­ En este momento el Departamento de Salud del Distrito de Lake Cumberland  (LCDHD) ha tenido 189 casos positivos o que se presume positivos en nuestros 10 condados.A pesar del número de casos confirmados en cualquier condado de Lake Cumberland, pensamos que el COVID-19 sea esparcido. El LCDHD está trabajando con el Departamento de Salud Pública de Kentucky para identificar y contactar a todos aquellos que puedan haber estado en contacto con ellos.

Nos complace informar que no hay nuevos casos desde ayer y no hay nuevas muertes.

Hoy reformateamos nuestro resumen de información pública.

Droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

Note: The charts and tables on our site may exclude “out-of-state” positives and positives in Kentucky with unknown county locations. The data may be a day behind while specific locations of cases are confirmed. Lake Cumberland’s information in various public information releases may not match the Governor’s numbers since our offices and his receive information on a different time interval. Lake Cumberland data on the charts and tables are based on what we know locally at any given moment. Please see our daily news brief under "News" on our homepage for our most recent local case count.

Regardless of local confirmed case count, we assume that COVID-19 is widely spread across all Lake Cumberland Counties.
