LCDHD COVID-19 Public Information Brief 4/6/2021

By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department

Today we added fewer cases than for the same period last week, so our 7-day-average incidence rate went down slightly. 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 6 counties in the "yellow-community-spread" category, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, Russell, Taylor, and Wayne; 3 counties in the "orange-accelerated" range of community-spread: Adair, Casey, and Pulaski; and 1 county in the "red-critical" range: McCreary. It should be noted that we have no active cases in Cumberland.

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 2.89%.

Victory Community Church celebrating 11-year anniversary

By Kathy Shelton

Victory Community Church was established on March 21, 2010, at 107 Reed Street, Columbia, KY under the direction of pastor Bill Henson. On July 6, 2014 pastor Rick Shelton began his service with Victory Community Church and in November of 2014, the church was moved to the present location of 1165 Russell Road, Columbia KY.

God has richly blessed us as a congregation, and last year we were able to pay off the loan on the church building. However, due to Covid, we were unable to celebrate. On Sunday, April 11, 2021, Victory will be having an Anniversary Meal and Note Burning Celebration after the morning service at 10:30amCT.

Bring a dish and come in celebration of what God has accomplished through the service of His disciples, past and present. Everyone is invited to come worship/fellowship as we celebrate His blessings.
