It is important that we keep the community informed as we continue to pivot and evolve with our response to COVID19. We informed you last night that we had our first positive COVID19 case of a first responder in Scott County. WEDCO immediately began their investigation upon being notified. Based on the investigation, WEDCO had 6 additional first responders tested. Dr. Miller, public health director for WEDCO confirmed this evening that all additional tests were negative for COVID19.
Many thanks for all the thoughts and continued prayers .
First responders are an essential part of our community response and it is essential that we take every step necessary to protect them so they can respond to our community needs. We appreciate your patience and trust in us as we continue forward.
Beshear announced 185 new cases of Coronavirus and 4 new deaths on Saturday.
Please continue to practice Social Distancing and stay home as much as possible.
I want to wish all a wonderful Easter.
We will get through this Together!
