The NKY Health Department echoed warnings from Gov. Andy Beshear to avoid gatherings this holiday weekend.
"Passover has already begun and Easter will be here in a couple of days. As much as we want to get together during this time, we must stay vigilant with social distancing in order to protect ourselves and our family, and fight the spread of COVID-19 in Northern Kentucky," the department stated in a release.
"Do you want it on your conscience, if you pass it on to someone and they die?" Beshear asked rhetorically at his press conference.
According to a recent article in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, a study from Chicago demonstrated that two family events – a funeral and a birthday party – led to 16 cases of COVID-19, including three deaths.
“This tells us that just one family gathering can spread COVID-19, and sadly can also be deadly. Now more than ever we need to stay healthy at home, celebrate with those in our household, and plan gatherings for when the threat from COVID-19 is over,” said Dr. Lynne Saddler, District Director of Health.
Saddler said there are a limited number of tests available and health care providers and systems are carefully determining who needs to be tested.
