Phillip Coffey - Not New

NOT NEW, By Phillip Coffey
Exiting the front door on my front steps I am soon sighing.
Listen to that, well, it's got to be a distressed 'chicken hawk'.
No, it is a Mockingbird singing all of his well rehearsed lines
For the many activities raptured for the days planned festivities.

Sure is sunny on this pollen filled, allergy-ridden, chilly morn.
Sniffling, runny nose, eyes swollen - none of this is new
For we that have spent so many seasons in the warmth
Of the Spring time but yet I know nothing that I would undo.

LCDHD COVID-19 Public Information Brief 3/30/2021

By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department

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-incidence data will be skewed over the next few days as we are reconciling our data against the state data. Our 7-day incidence chart is showing 3 counties in the "yellow-community-spread" category, Pulaski, Russell, and Taylor; 5 counties in the "orange-accelerated" range of community-spread: Adair, Casey, Cumberland, Green, and Wayne; and 2 counties in the "red-critical" range: Clinton, and McCreary.

Don't forget that at both the world level and the national level, we are seeing sharp increases in new COVID-19 cases. Therefore, please do not assume that the pandemic is completely behind us and take the vaccine as soon as you can.
