Christian County now yellow on COVID community spread map

Christian County has joined Todd as yellow on the COVID community spread map, while Trigg remains red and though hospitalization numbers continue to rise statewide, there’s some hope the data will improve.

Governor Andy Beshear says the rising hospitalization numbers are especially troubling if you are at high risk for serious illness from COVID-19.

The positivity rate is actually starting to decline slightly, which the governor says will hopefully be a sign of things to come.

The number of Kentuckians in the ICU and on a ventilator continues to remain very low, as the Omicron variant of COVID affects the body in a different way than previous variants of the virus.
