The Barren River District Health Department is investigating 20 cases of COVID-19 in the Barren River District, two of which have recovered, according to a press release from their office today. Warren County has twelve cases, Simpson County has six, and Logan County has two. Edmonson County still has zero confirmed cases.
Neighboring counties outside of BRDHD are reporting two more cases, both in Grayson County. Butler, Barren, and Hart still report none.
As of today, Kentucky has a total of 302 confirmed cases across the Commonwealth, according to the Kentucky Department of Public Health.
"We should all prepare for the number of positive cases to continue to increase in the coming days, and take measures to calm anxiety and fear," said the district in the release. "Due to a limited amount of tests and supplies, only certain groups of people need be tested."
Below is some information BRDHD said might help in making decisions about testing and seeking medical care.
