The Lake Cumberland District Health Department currently has all of our counties in our District in the “green” level of community spread.
This is based on the CDC Community Spread model that we have adopted. This model has replaced the incidence rate model. This model uses hospital capacity and a number of new patients with Covid-19 admitted to the hospital in the last week as a basis to determine the level of Covid-19 infection in the community.
KDPH will continue to closely monitor COVID-19 data and provide weekly updates on the KDPH COVID-19 website. We appreciate the understanding and cooperation as we learn to live with COVID-19 and work to keep Kentuckians safe. For more information on the new tool provided by CDC, please visit the CDC website: https://www.cdc.gov/…/your-health/covid-by-county.html
