COVID-19: two more deaths, reports of non-compliance

By Amy Tomlinson, Lake Cumberland District Health Department

It has been our hardest day in a while. We had two new deaths, both in Adair, both nursing home residents: an 82-year-old male and a 76-year-old female. The 82-year-old male had been previously released from isolation, meaning they were free of the virus, but ultimately succumbed to lasting complications caused by the virus.

We also report two new cases: a 67-year-old female from Adair and a 66 year-old-male from Pulaski. We released four from isolation today. This means 164 or 79% of our cases have recovered from the virus.

On Sunday evening a new case reported is a 59-year-old male from the nursing home in Adair County.

We are receiving many reports of people not complying with safety guidelines.
