COVID-19 News Brief & Vaccination Update 4/16/21 5:30 PM EST

Lake Cumberland District Daily COVID-19 Case Summary

We added 152 new cases this week compared to 154 last week. So, our 7-day average incidence rate went down slightly. At the district level, we are averaging adding 10.37 new case per 100,000 citizens per day. Our growth rate projects now that we will double our total cases in 691 days. We experienced 1 COVID-19 related death this week. We have 136 active cases today compared to 128 active cases last Friday. We have 18 hospitalized cases today compared to 18 last Friday.

Our 7-day average incidence chart is now showing 1 county in the “green-on-track” range, Clinton; 5 counties in the “yellow-community-spread” category, Adair, Cumberland, Green, Russell, and Wayne; and 4 counties in the “orange-accelerated” range of community-spread: Casey, McCreary, Pulaski, and Taylor. We are thankful to not have any “red-critical” counties now. Keep in mind, some of our 7-day-incidence data will be skewed over the next few days as we are reconciling our data against the state data.

Additional Guidance

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.

There are several locations across the state vaccinating. You may call 1-855-598-2246, or visit to find out if you are eligible and where you can receive the vaccine. Remember, supplies are still limited, it may take several weeks to secure an appointment.

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.
