LCDHD: TJ Health Columbia announced as regional vaccine site

LCDHD COVID-19 Public Information Brief 2/11/2021

By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department

We added fewer cases today than last Thursday, so our 7-day average incidence rate lowered slightly. Cumberland remains our only county in the "orange-critical" range of community-spread. The remaining 9 counties are in the "red-critical" range of community spread.

As I listened to the Governor's update today, I noted at least 3 new vaccination sites for our area:
  • TJ Health Columbia as a regional hub
  • Campbellsville Kroger as a pharmacy site
  • Campbellsville Wal-mart as a pharmacy site
I am in the process of verifying this, along with the contact information and the weekly supply. I'll update the "vaccine" section of our Daily Brief once all of the needed information is obtained.



Please, let's all do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 by wearing our face coverings, avoiding crowds (especially in confined spaces), social distancing when around others, increasing our hand hygiene, increasing our general sanitation, and by avoiding touching our faces.

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 7.08%.

Deaths: We are happy to report no new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 337 deaths resulting in a 1.75% mortality rate (about 1 in 57) among known cases. This compares with a 1.09% mortality rate at the state level, and a 1.73% mortality rate at the national level.

Hospitalizations: We presently have 55 cases in the hospital. This is 14 less than what we reported yesterday. We have had a total of 1,074 hospitalizations resulting in a 5.57% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 18) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 4.63%. The latest data shows that 97.78% of Lake Cumberland's ICU beds are filled, and 41.67% of ventilator capacity is being utilized.

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 19,291 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 9.24% of our total population have been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested.

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 151 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 7; Casey: 11; Clinton: 12; Cumberland: 1; Green: 9; McCreary: 15; Pulaski: 42; Russell: 25; Taylor: 17; and, Wayne: 12. In all, we have released 94.3% of our total cases.

Active (Current) Cases: Taking into account deaths and releases, our active cases decreased by 54 more than the new cases we added today. This leaves us with 759 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district's 10 counties. On 12/10/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1,341.

Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Family, Schools, and Medical Facilities. Of our active cases, 9% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 97 today: Adair: 5; Casey: 3; Clinton: 6; Cumberland: 1; Green: 2; McCreary: 14; Pulaski: 16; Russell: 20; and, Taylor: 30. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.006. This means our total case count is projected to double every 119.2 days. The most new cases we ever added in a single day was on 12/30/2020 when we added 301 cases. Today's new cases include:

A close look at our data may appear that Pulaski and Wayne's numbers are off today. This is because we moved 1 case from Wayne to Pulaski.

The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 19,291 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 385,559 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 384,903 statewide plus 656 recently reported cases in Lake Cumberland not in the Governor's/Department for Public Health's daily report). Regardless of the confirmed case count for any Lake Cumberland County, we believe COVID-19 to be widespread. The LCDHD is working tirelessly, including nights and weekends, to identify and contact all those with whom any positive case may have come into close contact, and to follow-up with positive cases when ready to be released. Additionally, we are striving diligently to follow-up on business-related complaints regarding noncompliance with the COVID-19 guidance. We are also working with any community partner that requests assistance for prevention or post-exposure planning/response. Finally, we are working with all community partners regarding vaccination planning.

COVID-19 Vaccination Status
Regional Hubs
The Governor recently announced additional sites where vaccines for Phase 1a and 1b, including 70 and older, have opened. More sites, including more Lake Cumberland area sites, will be opening in the weeks to come. You may call 1-855-598-2246, or visit vaccine.ky.gov to find out if you are eligible and where you can receive the vaccine. Remember, supplies are still limited, it may take several weeks to secure an appointment.

Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital: Five hundred prime/1st dose vaccines are coming into the Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital each week for folks in the 1a and 1b group, including those 70 and older. Their COVID-19 hotline phone number 1-844-675-3390.

Nursing and Personal Care Homes: Locally, through a contract with the federal government, Walgreens and CVS pharmacies continue to vaccinate the long-term care facilities and personal care homes -- residents and staff.

Health Department: Right now, all our our appointment slots are filled. Please do not leave your information on our answering machines or voice mails. We are not keeping any sort of waiting list. We have hope that we will start getting a consistent allocation of vaccine soon. Watch our Daily Brief and social media for updates.
