COVID-19 cases on the rise in Lexington

June 8, 2020 – COVID-19 continues to spread rapidly in Lexington: there have been 56 new cases confirmed since Saturday, bringing the city’s total to 928. None of the new cases are from the outbreak at the Federal Medical Center, meaning COVID-19 is spreading throughout the entire city. Based on our case investigations, the protests are not contributing to the rise in cases we’ve seen this week and the couple weeks prior.

Our recommendations about preventing the spread of COVID-19 remain the same no matter the reason anyone is going out into the public: practice physical distancing by staying at least 6 feet apart from anyone not in your household, wear a cloth mask covering your face and nose, and wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.
