By Tracy Aaron, CHES Health Education Director
Lake Cumberland District Health Department

There has been an increase in cases lately across the Lake Cumberland District. There were 2 new cases reported in Adair County yesterday for a total of 3 active cases. The health department would like to remind people that is is very important to follow these recommended guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community:
  • 1. Avoiding crowds as much as possible is your best way to reduce your risk.
  • 2. Wash your hands with soap and water often and thoroughly.
  • 3. Wear a mask when you are out in public. (More information from CDC)
  • 4. Stay home if you have a fever or are coughing. (Symptoms)
  • 5. Increase sanitation. (Healthy at Work)
  • 6. Avoid touching your face.
The spread of this disease can be greatly reduced when we follow the guidelines listed above. COVID-19 cases have been contained in workplaces, nursing homes, and the community by practicing these recommendations.
