Covid-19 Q&A from our District Health Department
From The Lake Cumberland District Health Department

Q. Is the public allowed to have yard sales/garage sales?
A. LCDHD had sought guidance from the state and understood that yard sales could open on May 20th. We learned today that the Governor is not comfortable with allowing yard sales at this time. We will now rescind our earlier comments allowing yard sales so that we are in line with what the Governor issued during today's public briefing. We regret any inconvenience this has caused to the public.
Q. Is there a typo in the age of the female resident from Russell (9 year old)? Are we seeing many cases in children?
A. No, that isn't a typo. The case was a 9 year-old female from Russell County. To date, 6 of our 231 cases have been under the age of 18. It's hard to know how many children have been impacted because they don't often show symptoms.
Q. Any word on school opening plans or dates for counties. Who decides? School Boards? Health Department?
A. The Health Department is working with each school to develop re-opening plans. As of this time there are no dates as to when schools will re-open. Ultimately, dates for re-opening any school will be determined by the Governor's Office and the school will need to decide how to meet the final requirements.
Q. Can you address if COVID-19 cases are on the rise and if so, what will be done about it?
A. Last week we saw some rise at the state and local level. This is expected with the re-opening of the economy. Right now we intend to enforce business to comply with safety guidance and to encourage the public to continue to social distance as much as possible, to wear masks to protect others, to wash their hands often and thoroughly, to stay home if they have a fever or cough and to avoid touching their face.
