The following is a Publc Notice received from the Adair County Judge Exec.'s Office last Tuesday, Oct. 20th:
Adair County Clerk Lisa Greer was notified on Tuesday, Oct. 20th of an Election Poll Worker that tested positive for COVID-19. We have said from the beginning that we would be transparent and up front with the citizens of our community. This worker was NOT in the Adair Annex building on Tuesday, Oct. 20th and the building is cleaned every morning before opening and every evening after closing, as well as during the day. Any workers who were in direct contact with this poll worker has been sent for testing and must have a negative test result before returning to work.
This is the reason we take the steps we do, to hopefully stop the spread to others if or when someone is exposed. Poll workers are wearing the KN95 masks and are behind a plexiglass shield. Disinfecting spray and bleach water are used multiple times a day to sanitize and hand sanitizer is on sight for anyone to use.
Close contact to a positive person is considered to be within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes. If anyone was in close contact with a positive patient, you will be contacted by the Lake Cumberland District Health Department.
