Governor reports on COVID: Most counties at high or medium levels; hospitalizations low, positivity rising

In his weekly press conference, Gov. Andy Beshear noted that most Kentucky counties have a COVID-19 Community Level that is medium or high (orange or red).

However, there are nine counties with a Community Level that is low (green).

Although the number of Kentuckians hospitalized or in the ICU for COVID-19 has increased over the past several weeks, hospitalizations remain much lower than what was observed during other surges. The positivity rate is also continuing to increase.

The Governor encouraged those who are sick to stay home to avoid spreading disease to others.

If you are sick or have had a known close contact to someone with COVID-19, please test yourself to lower the risk of spreading the virus unknowingly to others.

Boone and Kenton are at high levels (RED) and Campbell is at the medium level (Orange)
