Letter: Cases of COVID-19 in Adair County
Charles Marshburn writes:
Why are the names of those who test positive not posted so those folks can be avoided? How many cases are there officially in Adair County? What percentage of the population of Adair county has tested positive.Charles, thanks for writing. The main reason names aren't shared is that since the HIPAA act of 1996, it is illegal for health care providers to disclose those names.
On the other hand, it is perfectly fine for individuals to announce their exposure themselves, and they should be letting everyone who might have been in contact with them know. In our experience, the local health departments are doing their very best to make sure that process happens quickly and thoroughly.
We've added the local case totals graphic that LCDHD provided to the LCDHD COVID-19 Public Information Brief 12/11/2020 posted earlier this morning. It shows that Adair County has 131 active caess, with more than 1,100 cases so far, out of on a population of roughly 18,500.
