COVID-19 update: wear a mask when out in public
By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department
We are sad to report one death today, an 85-year-old female from Adair, a Summit Manor resident who had been released from isolation (was disease-free) but later succumbed to lingering complications from the disease. We released five from home-isolation (recovered), so 84% of our total confirmed cases have recovered.
The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 215 Cumulative Confirmed Cases and there have been 8,571 Confirmed COVID-19 cases across 117 Kentucky Counties as of 05/23/20 (this includes 8,571 statewide plus 0 recently reported cases in Lake Cumberland not in the Governor's daily report).
Regardless of the confirmed case count for any Lake Cumberland County, we believe COVID-19 to be widespread. LCDHD is working to identify and contact all those with whom any positive case may have come into close contact.
It is being reported from all around our district that there are many people out and about, a significant number of whom are not wearing masks. Don't forget that you can have and be spreading COVID-19 without even knowing you're sick. Please don't become complacent.
Avoiding crowds as much as possible is your best way to reduce your risk. Wash your hands with soap and water often and thoroughly; wear a mask when out in public; stay home if you have a fever or are coughing; increase sanitation, and avoid touching your face to further reduce your risk.
