"We stand in solidarity with those affected during these difficult times," said a statement from the health department.
In Governor Beshear's conference today, he reported a total of 93 new cases in Kentucky, which is less than yesterday's report; however, he did not report on Edmonson's new cases. A BRDHD employee told the Edmonson Voice today that sometimes the communication lines between the Governor's office and local health department can be delayed as a result of the verification process.
Beshear also reported two more deaths from the virus today, with another possible death he said had not been confirmed at the time of his remarks. The total death toll in Kentucky has been confirmed at 20 from COVID-19.
