Covid Levels Remain Green for Another Week

Public Information Update 6.23.22
The Lake Cumberland District Health Department currently has one county in the “yellow” or moderate Covid community spread level and the remainder of our counties are in the “green” level of community spread.
The map is based on the CDC Community Spread model. This model calculates the level of Covid-19 infection in the community based on hospital capacity and the number of new COVID admitted patients to the hospital for the last week.
Covid cases are rising again throughout the US, Kentucky, and Lake Cumberland. If you are eligible for a booster, this is the time to get it. If you haven’t been vaccinated yet, please consider getting the vaccine. Many studies have shown that immunity from recent vaccination is more effective against COVID variants than immunity resulting from a prior COVID infection. The strain that is circulating now is very contagious, but so far hospitalizations due to the virus remain low.
