Officials still touting vaccines and boosters

Nearly 200 new COVID-19 infections and two more COVID-related deaths have been recorded in western Kentucky. WNIN’s John Gibson has details:

The Green River District Health Department tallied 197 new cases in the seven-county district last week.

That’s an average of about 28 new infections a day, and does not include positive results that may have been recorded during at-home tests.

The two fatalities were from Henderson and Daviess Counties.

The numbers very nearly matched the district’s report from a week ago, indicating the virus is still active.

Officials urge residents to stay up to date on COVID-19 vaccines and boosters, follow CDC recommendations for isolation and quarantine, and if you’re immunocompromised or high-risk, talk to your healthcare provider about whether you need to wear a mask or take other precautions.
