Newest vaccine now available at Health department
By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department
The Lake Cumberland District Health Department now has Johnson and Johnson vaccine for Phase 1A, 1B, and 1C (most people now qualify). Call your local health department for an appointment. Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 2.89%.
The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 21,207 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 10.15% of our total population has been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested. Of our total cases, 0.39% are reinfections.
Active (Current) Cases: Taking into account deaths and releases, our active cases decreased by 20 more than the new cases we added today. This leaves us with 144 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On Stop we were at our peak number of active cases, 144. Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Family, Businesses, Schools, and Medical Facilities. Of our active cases, 2% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).
We added fewer cases today than for the same time period last week, so our 7-day average incidence rate went down. Keep in mind, some of our 7-day average incidence data will be skewed over the next few days as we are reconciling our data against the state data. Our 7-day incidence rate chart is showing 2 counties in the “yellow-community-spread” category, Green, and Taylor; 6 counties in the “orange-accelerated” range of community-spread: Adair, Casey, Cumberland, Pulaski, Russell, and Wayne; and 2 counties in the “red-critical” range: Clinton, and McCreary.
Don’t forget that in countries like Brazil, India, France, Italy, and Germany we are seeing sharp increases in new COVID-19 cases.
Also, states like New Jersey, Michigan, and Pennsylvania are seeing sharp increases. Therefore, please do not assume that the pandemic is completely behind us and take the vaccine as soon as you can. Also, until the vaccine is widely available, and a significant percentage of the population has taken it, 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.
