  • With the COVID-19 Infections and deaths increasing, it is so very important for us to continue to observe the CDC Guidelines of avoiding close contact with those who are sick, maintaining at least 6 feet from others who are not from your household, wearing face masks when in public (Mandatory in Kentucky and is being extended on a 30 day basis until the spread is under control), washing your hands frequently, covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, and leave home only when absolutely necessary.  The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is still spreading across the country. It is important to understand as much as possible about the disease to protect yourself and your family.  Click for the KY COVID-19 Dashboard.  You can watch this short video which provides some important information regarding the disease and its symptoms.
