The coronavirus has rained on yet another parade in Edmonson County for 2020; this time, it's the annual Christmas Parade.
The Edmonson County Lions Club told the Edmonson Voice that they have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Christmas Parade due to rising COVID cases.
"As bad as we hate to do it, we feel that it's the right thing to do," said Lions Club President Jimmie Duvall. "The surrounding counties have also decided to do the same and we'd hate to take a risk on spreading sickness. Hopefully things will be better next year."
Cases in Edmonson County saw a slight rise last week and in-person classes at Edmonson County Schools will be suspended beginning Wednesday. Several churches in the county have also begun postponing services due to cases.
