This has been a tough week. At the state level we added more new cases than for any week since the onset of the outbreak. During Lake Cumberland’s largest week, we added 267 new cases. While we did not reach that mark, we have seen two weeks of growth, with a sharp increase this week (from 188 to 227).
 
We also have 54 more active cases this week compared to last (281 vs 227). On 09/02/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 411. Last week on Saturday we had 16 hospitalized cases, this week 15. We also experienced 2 deaths this week.
 
In short, cases are back on the rise at the state and local level, with sharp increases since last week. The more new cases, the more mortality and hospitalizations that will follow. Please, let’s all continue to do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 by wearing our face coverings, avoiding crowds (especially in confined spaces), social distancing when around others, increasing our hand hygiene, increasing our general sanitation, and by avoiding the touching of our faces.
 
The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 2,986 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 72,057 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 72,001 statewide plus 56 recently reported cases in Lake Cumberland not in the Governor’s/Department for Public Health’s daily report). Regardless of the confirmed case count for any Lake Cumberland County, we believe COVID-19 to be widespread. The LCDHD is working tirelessly, including nights and weekends, to identify and contact all those with whom any positive case may have come into close contact, and to follow-up daily with positive cases. Additionally, we are striving diligently to follow-up on business-related complaints regarding noncompliance with the Governor's Executive Orders. We are also working with any community partner that requests assistance for prevention or post-exposure planning/response.
