On Tuesday, September 13, 2022, the Green River District Health Department (GRDHD) reported that in
the previous week it had investigated 555 new COVID-19 infections; 276 in Daviess County, 26 in
Hancock County, 102 in Henderson County, 31 in McLean County, 51 in Ohio County, 44 in Union
County, and 25 in Webster County. There was 1 COVID-19 death reported the previous week in Daviess
County. The average number of new cases in the district for that period was 79 new cases a day. The
newly reported cases were investigated between September 5 – 11, 2022. County level data for COVID19 can be found at kycovid19.ky.gov and cdc.gov. Additional county level guidance can be found at
COVID.gov.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides information to help communities decide
what prevention steps to take based on the latest COVID-19 data. COVID-19 Community Levels for
every county can be found at cdc.gov. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by
looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in
an area. The COVID-19 Community Level is currently classified as high for Hancock and McLean
Counties, medium for Daviess, Ohio, Union, and Webster Counties, and low for Henderson County.

GRDHD encourages all its residents to:
• Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines and boosters.
• Wear a well-fitting mask in indoor public settings.
• If you are immunocompromised or high risk for severe disease, talk to your healthcare provider
about whether you need or take other precautions. Those at high risk should consider avoiding
non-essential indoor public activities.
• Follow CDC recommendations for isolation and quarantine, including getting tested if you are
exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms of COVID-19.
• People may choose to mask at any time. People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to
someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.
