One Kentucky County Still Reporting Zero Confirmed COVID-19 Cases

More than three months after Kentucky saw its first confirmed case of coronavirus in Harrison County, nearby Robertson County has not recorded its first confirmed case. 

The north-central Kentucky County is the Commonwealth’s smallest in terms of population.  Still, Buffalo Trace Health Department Public Information Officer Sam Wilson says many residents there are taking the virus seriously. “You know size wise it’s not geographically very large but the community there is amazing.  I think that also plays a role into how diligent people have been in following the public health prevention practices,” said Wilson.

Wilson said that includes avoiding large gatherings, social distancing, and wearing masks in public settings.  Wilson noted COVID-19 testing is available at several locations near Robertson County including mornings at the Buffalo Trace District Health Department.
