COVID-19 update: highest number of cases in one day
The Health Department reported Wednesday evening that our total case count has increased by 76 in one day - Adair: 13; Casey: 4; Clinton: 4; Cumberland: 1; Green: 5; McCreary: 3; Pulaski: 6; Russell: 9; Taylor: 23; and, Wayne: 8. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.015. This means our total case count is projected to double every 45.25 days.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Oct. 21, 2020) - Gov. Andy Beshear on Wednesday said the White House is saying Kentuckians in red or orange counties shouldn't have gatherings at all beyond their immediate families.
The Governor noted Kentucky already has guidance limiting to 10 or fewer people gatherings such as backyard barbecues and house parties, but the recommendation from the White House this week goes even further.
"There is so much spread at family gatherings, events at the house, as well as weddings and funerals," the Governor said.
"At the very least, we need people to be a lot more cognizant of the dangers of these gatherings, especially when people aren't wearing masks the whole time."
The Governor said one wedding resulted in 44 cases, one funeral caused seven cases and one coffee gathering resulted in eight cases and two deaths. While weddings and funerals will continue, the Governor said more Kentuckians need to step up and follow the rules to make them safer.
The Governor said the guidance is timely because today he reported the highest number of cases ever reported on a single day, aside from the day when he reported a significant backlog of cases from Lexington.
"The difference between where we are now and where we were in March is that now we know how to stop the spread," said Gov. Beshear. "It's like being in the challenge of your lifetime, it's like being in a war - except you know 100% how to win. The question is, are you going to execute the plan to win?"
