School in Adair will be virtual Monday, 22 Feb 2021

From Adair Public Schools

Adair County School Superintendent Dr. Pamela Stephens made a phone call announcement to students, families and staff that all classes on Monday, February 22, 2021 will be virtual.

She said that even though a lot of melting had been done today, many roads, especially in the north end of the county, are still icy and slick. She said that Tuesday weather is sounding good and hopes the schedule can resume as it was before the ice and snow storms of last week.

LCDHD COVID-19 Public Information Brief 2/20/2021

By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department

We added 371 new cases this week compared to 713 last week. While the blizzard may have had something to do with this (people could not get out to test), we are happy for the lower numbers. New cases are also dropping on the world, national, and state level. We have 412 active cases today compared to 707 last Saturday. For the first time in 4 weeks, our new case rate is lower than the state's new case rate. We experienced 5 deaths this week compared to 10 last week. We have 42 hospitalized cases today compared to 41 last Saturday.

We now have 5 counties in the "orange-critical" range of community-spread: Casey, Clinton, McCreary, Pulaski, and Wayne. Only 5 counties are in the "red-critical" range of community-spread: Adair, Cumberland, Green, Russell, and Taylor. Last week, all 10 of our 10 counties were in the "red-critical" range of community-spread.

With more and more vaccine sites opening and more and more vaccine coming into our area, the end of this pandemic is approaching. To prevent a resurgence of the disease, let's all 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 touching our faces.
