Lake Cumberland District Daily COVID-19 Case Summary

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.

Tuvimos 5 casos nuevos hoy, 4 en Adair (3 atados a un hogar de ancianos) y 1 en McCreary.  No hay nuevas muertes y hay 2 casos liberados del aislamiento.  Además, publicamos en nuestro sitio web y redes sociales orientación para iglesias.

Estamos trabajando agresivamente para facilitar los sitios de prueba en todos los condados de Lake Cumberland. También estamos trabajando para obtener una lista precisa de las instalaciones médicas locales que proporcionan pruebas para que podamos publicar una lista de los sitios de pruebas locales.

Finalmente, a medida que estén disponibles, estamos revisando las guias del Gobernador sobre la reapertura de negocios. Hemos tenido reuniones de Zoom con los jueces y alcaldes del condado, los fiscales del condado y las cámaras de comercio para prepararnos para una reapertura sin problemas de la economía local

Se cree que el virus se transmite principalmente de persona a persona:

  • Entre personas que se están en contacto cercano (dentro de unos 6 pies).
  • A través de gotas respiratorias producidas cuando una persona infectada tose o estornuda.
  • Estas gotitas pueden caer en la boca o la nariz de las personas cercanas o posiblemente ser inhaladas a los pulmones.

The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person: 1) between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet), 2) via 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.

  • Avoiding crowds as much as possible is your best way to reduce your risk.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water often and thoroughly.
  • Wear a mask when out in public.
  • Stay home if you have a fever or are coughing.
  • Increase sanitation.
  • Avoid touching your face.

  • Performing case and close contact investigations and issuing isolation and quarantine orders for positive COVID-19 cases and high-risk close contacts of confirmed COVID-19 cases.
  • Responding to issues of non-compliance with the Governor’s order to close down businesses specifically told to shut down for a period of time and also operating businesses not complying with precautionary re-opening measures.
  • Reviewing the Governor's reopening of the economy guidance and fielding community questions and such; and, assisting businesses with their planning efforts.
  • Providing weekly meetings to update the media and public on COVID-19 in our region.
  • Planning for mass immunization clinics once a vaccine is available in our area.
  • Consulting with long-term care facilities regarding best practices for preventing COVID-19; and, responding to positive cases.
  • Participating in weekly calls with long-term care facilities and offering guidance and support as needed.
  • Helping to coordinate testing sites.
  • Helping to monitor Personal Protective Equipment in key medical and long-term care facilities.

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.
