Meade County has seen more new cases of COVID-19 in August than it saw in the last four months combined, according to numbers from the Lincoln Trail District Health Department.

From March 1 through July 30, Meade County saw a total of 109 new cases of COVID-19. So far in August alone, Meade County has seen 156 new cases of COVID-19.

The county’s number of active cases was on a decline for the last four months. Active cases dropped from 69 in March to 8 at the end of June. At that point, the LTDHD dismantled their COVID-19 Emergency Operation Center and stopped sending out regular updates.
