COVID-19 Update: new cases are of ages 9, 34, 41
Today a significant number of new cases were added. This underscores that COVID-19 is still with us and growing by way of community-spread. So, please, do not be complacent.
By Amy Tomlinson
The Lake Cumberland District Health Department reported three new cases Friday, May 29, 2020: one in Russell, a 9-year-old female resident; one in Pulaski, a 34-year-old male; and, one in Clinton, a 41-year-old male. The two new cases in Russell and Pulaski received the anti-body test and were positive several weeks ago. So, even though we are adding those two cases to our total case count, we are not adding them to our current cases.
The new Clinton case is on home-isolation and the case investigation and contact tracing have begun. We now have ten active cases in our district. We are happy to report no new deaths or hospitalizations. We have released 189 cases from isolation (recovered). That equates to 85% having been released.
The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 224 Cumulative Confirmed Cases and there have been 9,468 Confirmed COVID-19 cases across 118 Kentucky Counties as of 05/29/20 (this includes 9,464 statewide plus 4 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.
Today, as far as the state-wide numbers are concerned, a significant number of new cases were added. This underscores that COVID-19 is still with us and growing by way of community-spread. So, please, do not be complacent.
Avoiding crowds as much as possible remains your best way to reduce your risk. Washing your hands with soap and water often and thoroughly, wearing a mask when out in public, staying home if you have a fever or are coughing, increasing sanitation, and avoiding touching your face further reduces your risk.
