Meade County Judge/Executive Gerry Lynn announced that the county has two confirmed cases of COVID-19.
He said that one case was confirmed yesterday evening, and another was confirmed this morning. He urged Meade Countians to diligently practice social distancing in an effort to protect the public.
"Please be mindful that the social distancing rule still apply to all outdoor activities," Lynn said. "It's become more difficult now that the weather is becoming warmer, but we will undo all the progress if we start congregating in the parks, garden centers, and sports facilities."
He also encouraged parents to talk to their young children and teens about why limiting contact is so important right now. He said that we have tech savvy youth, and parents should encourage them to find creative ways to stay in touch with their friends and family.
"We can stay connected even when we have to be six feet apart," Lynn said.
Lynn said he would keep the community informed on updates and changes.
