Hospitalizations: We presently have 45 cases in the hospital. This is 3 more than what we reported yesterday. We have had a total of 1,103 hospitalizations resulting in a 5.52% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 18) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 4.69%. The latest data shows that 91.11% of Lake Cumberland’s ICU beds are filled, and 28.33% of ventilator capacity is being utilized.

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 19,976 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 9.56% of our total population have been a confirmed case.

A close look at our data may appear that Pulaski and Taylor’s numbers are off. This is because we moved 1 case from Pulaski to Taylor.

We added more cases today than last Monday. This could be due to more people being tested post-blizzard. It will be next week before we can really see if our case rates are continuing to go down. In any event, our district-wide 7-day average incidence rate went up slightly today.

We now have 5 counties in the “orange-critical” range of community-spread: Casey, Clinton, McCreary, Pulaski, and Wayne. Only 5 counties are in the “red-critical” range of community-spread: Adair, Cumberland, Green, Russell, and Taylor. Last week, all 10 of our 10 counties were in the “red-critical” range of community-spread.

With more and more vaccine sites opening and more and more vaccine coming into our area, the end of this pandemic is approaching. To prevent a resurgence of the disease, 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 the touching of our faces.

The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 19,976 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 398,212 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 397,526 statewide plus 686 recently reported cases in Lake Cumberland not in the Governor’s/Department for Public Health’s daily report). Regardless of the confirmed case count for any Lake Cumberland County, we believe COVID-19 to be widespread. The LCDHD is working tirelessly, including nights and weekends, to identify and contact all those with whom any positive case may have come into close contact, and to follow-up with positive cases when ready to be released. Additionally, we are striving diligently to follow-up on business-related complaints regarding noncompliance with the COVID-19 guidance. We are also working with any community partner that requests assistance for prevention or post-exposure planning/response. Finally, we are working with all community partners regarding vaccination planning.
