Dr. Miller, public health director confirmed no new positive cases in Scott County. We have a total 27 positive cases of COVID19 in Scott County. All active cases are recovering at home.
Governor Beshear announced one new case in Scott County. However, we do not report cases locally until WEDCO receives a positive lab report. Because labs are reporting at varying times, it is possible that Governor Beshear is reporting a case that we have already reported. We rely on our local health dept to have accurate case numbers to report to our community.
Governor Beshear reported 206 new cases with 274 people hospitalized with 155 individuals in ICU. 7 new deaths related to coronavirus were also shared .
As the situation continues to evolve, it is most important that you treat every interaction as a potential exposure to COVID-19.
A reminder that the most important thing you can do to keep us all safe is stay home and practice social distancing when you have to be out in public.
We will get through this Together!
