By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department

For only the second time since the onset of the outbreak do we have to report 3 deaths. We lost a 63-year-old female nursing home resident in Taylor; a 93-year-old male nursing home resident in Casey; and a 92-year-old female nursing home resident from Green. This is certainly not how we like to see our hospitalized numbers decrease.

We have 20 COVID-19 related cases in the hospital right now ranging in age from 19 to 90 with an average age of 61. Five of our hospitalized patients are under the age of 50.

We added 55 new cases today, our highest one-day growth since the onset of the outbreak. Our number of active cases grew by forty.

Please help us slow the spread of COVID-19 by wearing your face covering, avoiding crowds (especially in confined spaces), social distancing when around others, increasing your hand hygiene, increasing your general sanitation, and by avoiding the touching of your face.
