  • New deaths by county: 75 M Garrett, 73 F Graves, 54 M Lewis

  • Let me first discuss what is going on on within the nation, our COVID-19 instances are presently at an all-time excessive. Meaning our variety of new instances per day proper now could be even better than it was in the summertime once we have been seeing 70,000 instances in a given day, we are actually seeing greater than that. We’ve misplaced 225,158+ Individuals, at the very least partially attributable to COVID.

  • In the event you take a look at our journey advisory as it’s proper now you see the variety of states that exceed our extremely excessive threshold. 15%+ positivity charge is on the largest that it has ever been. And once more, it is throughout America. We advise that you don’t journey to those States, although, relying on the place you are residing proper now in Kentucky, we could also be advising you don’t journey in any respect.

  • So you possibly can think about the leap that we see within the total instances, we also needs to start to see within the subsequent two weeks that extra escalation and inpatient beds in use. ICU beds, people who aren’t simply sick sufficient to be within the hospital, which is a excessive bar, however want intensive care to survive- additionally, going up.

  • So right now we will make some redzone suggestions that we suggest for each county after they go crimson. And there are two causes for this primary, now we have an obligation as a neighborhood when issues are out of hand to get them again below management, that is our obligation as a neighborhood of people. However the second purpose we’re making these, is to guard people who rightfully acknowledge how harmful this virus is.

  • However I’ve to induce you now: this isn’t a second when there’s ever extra for the state, or for the nation to do for the person citizen. We will maintain at it, and we will maintain taking the steps we have to and I will maintain making suggestions to the Governor and I’ve each confidence he’ll take no matter onerous steps we have to, to attempt to maintain everybody secure. But when of us adopted the steering we have already got on the market: if individuals adopted the six ft of social distancing, the carrying your masks always in public, the washing and sanitizing your arms, staying house in case you are sick, and never going to high school or work should you’re sick, and getting examined for COVID you probably have any indicators or signs or publicity dangers that make it probably you possibly can have it, if we did these issues we would not be within the hassle we’re in now. However I will add the human element to the information the Governor confirmed. We have had, simply over the weekend, a request for an ICU switch from two states away- not one among our bordering states, two states away, as a result of they could not discover a hospital in their very own state that was nearer, or the neighboring state to take the affected person. And we took that affected person on the hospital right here in Kentucky. And I spoke with the state well being official from that state who was already conscious of this, and we had a dialogue about issues we will do to attempt to collaborate, to assist individuals in our personal states and throughout states.

  • When individuals go into the hospital there is just one drug, to date scientifically confirmed to enhance your threat of demise, and is a drug known as Dexamethasone that was first permitted to be used in 1961, 60 years in the past. We’ve nice progress that is being made and all types of analysis fronts. However in the mean time, the one drug that will increase your probability of survival is a 60 12 months previous treatment, that is been utilized by individuals for six a long time. So we have got a protracted approach to go. And the vaccines, now we have nice hope that the vaccines are going to cut back the illness, and assist us, however I’ve simply bought to place that in perspective, the preliminary vaccines aren’t going to be out there to individuals till the top of November on the very earliest and doubtless not till December, after which it is solely going to be a really small quantity for well being employees and first responders who’re at best threat and take care of the people who find themselves at best threat. After which it would take most of subsequent 12 months to roll this out to the complete inhabitants, and even then, all through that entire 12 months, we’re nonetheless going to need to maintain a six foot social distance, put on masks once we’re shut collectively, wash our arms, and comply with the opposite steering. So of us that record that is up there on the display now that you could see, I hope everybody will pay attention.

  • There’s nothing actually about sports activities, individuals nonetheless collaborating in sports activities, I could have ignored it, I apologize. — The query is, the redzone discount suggestions do not embrace sports activities, it’s as a result of there’s already that advice in place. By way of KHSAA you employ the incident charge map already and there is already a advice when it is crimson that you just pause sports activities. In order that’s already in place, like faculties and like nursing properties.

  • When it comes to faculty steering, the state positivity. The steering within the faculty reopening is in impact whereas the state is below 6%. What is going to change if our state positivity charge goes above 6%? — Our present faculty steering, which is what the query is about, is steering if the general state positivity charge is below 6%. If it climbs above 6% we’re going to take a detailed take a look at it. We’ll attempt to make a willpower of how a lot of which may be in a single particular space. But when it is decided that that is really marking out-of-control statewide unfold then we could have to take a look at numerous statewide options however we’re not there but. I additionally need to say that I believe our faculties are doing a extremely good job after they have their youngsters in.

  • Is it potential that you just’d change the Halloween steering between now and Halloween?– <...>We don’t anticipate altering the steering for Halloween as a result of we usually suppose it follows what we’re asking individuals to do and we additionally know individuals are going to go trick or treating with their youngsters. In the event you comply with that steering actually fastidiously it may be secure.

  • On Monday morning President Donald Trump reasserted the instances have been rising along side testing. — I imply our positivity charge exhibits that now we have extra virus. Sure, we’re testing extra, however now we have extra virus, even in comparison with, to that quantity of testing than now we have in a very long time. There is no query we’re nationally, and in Kentucky, in a 3rd escalation. We need not discover causes round that. It is what we face; acknowledge the problem, acknowledge the issue. Be part of the answer. We are able to save lives.

  • Slides from Replace

  • Alright, good afternoon. It’s 4 o’clock on a Monday. It is that point we come collectively and keep in mind, even with what we’re dealing with, even when occasions are getting tougher, that we’re gonna get by means of this, and we’re gonna get by means of this collectively. I’m excited to be again, reside right here within the Capitol, having emerged from a two week quarantine that I used to be requested to take as a result of I used to be in shut contact with somebody who was constructive and infectious with the coronavirus. I am pleased to say that my total household is secure and examined destructive 4 occasions, we didn’t contract the virus. And for this reason [holds up mask]. I am sitting within the entrance passenger seat of a automobile, subsequent to anyone driving, and so they have been infectious. However he was carrying a masks, and I used to be carrying a masks, and so I am right here right now, pleased to have by no means contracted this virus; but additionally as a testomony concerning the effectiveness of carrying a masks. I need to thank everyone who despatched effectively needs to me however primarily to my household, to my spouse, and to my two youngsters.

  • If there’s a blessing to being unable to depart the grounds on which you- the yard and the home, on which you live- it is that you just get to quarantine with the individuals you’re keen on most on this world, and so I took each benefit I might out of that further time. And so whereas for me and my household issues are good, the state of this nation and the state of our Commonwealth on the subject of COVID aren’t. We’re shifting within the mistaken route in a battle towards a virus that, at this level, we perceive sufficient about to the place we must be more practical. We’re seeing extra instances, we’re seeing extra individuals going into the hospital, we’re seeing extra individuals going into the ICU, and we’re gonna see increasingly more individuals die. It’s our job as a Commonwealth, and as a rustic, to show this round.

  • Let me first discuss what is going on on within the nation, our COVID-19 instances are presently at an all-time excessive. Meaning our variety of new instances per day proper now could be even better than it was in the summertime once we have been seeing 70,000 instances in a given day, we are actually seeing greater than that. We’ve misplaced 225,158+ Individuals, at the very least partially attributable to COVID. That’s astounding. That within the 12 months 2020 with every little thing that we all know, and with being I believe, essentially the most superior nation on this world, that we’re struggling losses on this scale. The present escalation that we’re on is already greater than the second, and positively greater than the primary. And trailing the brand new instances we see all around the nation, once more, not simply greater than ever earlier than, however in every single place.

  • Once we noticed the primary wave that is over there it was primarily New York, New Jersey, Louisiana, and a few different locations, being hit onerous. Once we noticed the second wave was locations like Florida, Arizona, Texas, and a few others being hit actually onerous. Our new wave? And what exhibits you that the peak that it is at now might simply be the beginning? Is that in every single place is beginning to escalate. Like these hard-hit, smaller areas within the first two escalation/waves/to me I do not care what you name it so long as you acknowledge how regarding that it’s. And what now we have seen with every wave is that hospitalizations comply with it. Nationally, we’re seeing hospitalization begin to considerably enhance once more. Keep in mind, whereas we’re getting higher and higher at treating it a sure proportion of those all-time excessive instances in America, find yourself within the hospital, find yourself within the ICU, and find yourself passing away. The extra total instances, the extra individuals we lose, and the extra individuals who get very sick.

  • In the event you take a look at our journey advisory as it’s proper now you see the variety of states that exceed our extremely excessive threshold. 15%+ positivity charge is on the largest that it has ever been. And once more, it is throughout America. We advise that you don’t journey to those States, although, relying on the place you are residing proper now in Kentucky, we could also be advising you don’t journey in any respect.

  • What we’re seeing throughout the nation, what we’re seeing in Kentucky, in our COVID instances by week is the best approach to present it. Now whereas that first nationwide wave should you suppose again on it was, for them we thought fairly massive, we have been capable of lower it off right here in Kentucky. At what now looks like a fairly low quantity. And whereas that second wave was not fairly as scary as the primary as a result of, once more, we would discovered a lot about this virus, we had PPE and we had testing, the extent of the rise was what was regarding then; the velocity at which it elevated. With the masks mandate and a few others we have been capable of mainly stage it off then. The size and velocity of the expansion of this third escalation is quicker than both of the earlier two. Final week we had our single largest week of constructive COVID-19 instances and it wasn’t even shut. 20+ % over the following highest week. And should you look again three weeks at that 7,675- a part of that was a backlog, and so, should you accounted for that, what you’d see is a steep enhance over a few six-week interval. 9,335 instances in per week in Kentucky is one thing that we by no means hoped that we’d see.

  • And similar to nationally, hospitalization follows this rise in instances and Kentucky’s escalation began a bit of sooner than the nation’s. So if we take a look at our COVID-19 inpatient beds in use we see over the past 4 weeks a gentle enhance that we have reported day-after-day.

  • People proper now if the hospital accepts you as a COVID-19 affected person, and we have discovered this by means of some private expertise these days, you might be actually sick. The quantity of people that present up hurtin’, that they are saying “you do not must be within the hospital”, it’s a actually excessive bar. And so if you see this chart going up, it means lots of people are getting lots sicker. And keep in mind, this trails instances by about two weeks. So you possibly can think about the leap that we see within the total instances, we also needs to start to see within the subsequent two weeks that extra escalation and inpatient beds in use. ICU beds, people who aren’t simply sick sufficient to be within the hospital, which is a excessive bar, however want intensive care to survive- additionally, going up. And once more, should you take a look at that 5 week incline, it raises some actually severe considerations.

  • And right now, solely provides to the considerations that now we have over what’s undoubtedly a big and extreme escalation that we’re experiencing in Kentucky. We had the best Friday ever, this final Friday. We had the best Saturday, ever, this final Saturday. We had the best Sunday ever, yesterday. And now now we have the best Monday, ever, all in a row.

  • At the moment we’re reporting 953, new instances of COVID-19, which keep in mind Mondays, now we have many fewer reviews that are available in. It is a considerably greater Monday than we normally report. And I imagine it is considerably greater than the second largest Monday that we have had. We are actually getting in depth numbers of checks again. However the stage and variety of checks, doesn’t account, doesn’t clarify away our greater case numbers as a result of our positivity charge which ought to go down as we get extra testing is definitely going up. We’re at 5.84% and Dr. Stack will discuss that right here in a bit of bit.

  • New deaths by county: 75 M Garrett, 73 F Graves, 54 M Lewis

  • And I’ve heard this remark that, “Effectively these are those that have, we will name them comorbidities or different current circumstances.” what the most typical ones so these are? And we’ll attempt to put this collectively: hypertension, hypertension. Effectively- what number of Kentuckians on the market have hypertension? That doesn’t imply you are a strolling corpse- you might be removed from lifeless, it signifies that when COVID hits you, it makes a severe impression. What’s one other one, diabetes? A whole bunch of 1000’s of Kentuckians have diabetes. These, once we discuss comorbidities, these are issues that individuals are residing with, however COVID is one thing that they’re dying with, at the very least partially, dying from.

  • Okay-12 Replace (PDF): PDF Replace solely

  • College Replace (PDF): PDF Replace solely

  • Let me offer you a tricky replace from the Thomson-Hood Veterans Middle in Wilmore. We now have 73 residents which have examined constructive in that facility. These are our susceptible veterans that we as a state are caring for. We now have eight whole deaths which have occurred from that facility of residents, one new one since yesterday. We’ve 4 people which have recovered, thank God for that, 10 which might be hospitalized, and 51 energetic COVID-19 instances amongst these residents; employees 49 have examined constructive and, once more thank God, 26 have recovered.

  • If we do not push down the extent of the incidences of this virus, it finds our most susceptible. And finds people who aren’t all that susceptible, and inflicts some actual ache and generally demise on them.

  • So the place are we as a state proper now? I’ll inform you that now we have put in important protections, restrictions, and steering. And should you put that up, I need to undergo what a few of these are as a result of now we have extra instruments in place, and extra aggressive steps than now we have taken in nearly every other state on this nation. We put in a masks mandate early, sooner than most states, actually sooner than any of our neighbors, a few of which nonetheless will not do that. We require that everyone put on a masks when they’re inside six ft of these exterior of their household, and those that are working inside as effectively. It is some of the complete masks mandates on this nation, although it’s just like so many who others have now put into place. This, if adopted, if important compliance, is among the single most important methods to cut back the variety of COVID-19 instances and it is also essentially the most important approach to shield your self and your loved ones, I might know.

  • We put a variety of Wholesome at Work necessities into place that keep in place. And these require big sacrifices by these they impression. And compliance with them, is how we honor these sacrifices, however they solely work if individuals comply with and do them.

    • We’ve important capability restrictions and a curfew on bars and eating places. We’ve capability restrictions on how many individuals will be inside at anyone level, on companies and retails and in each of these, everyone’s bought to be carrying masks.

    • Our employers are nonetheless requested to permit a sure proportion of individuals to make money working from home, 50% for these office-based companies.

    • Childcare nonetheless restricted to 15, childcare amenities have been already struggling economically, this makes it more durable, nevertheless it helps to regulate the virus.

    • Indoor and out of doors arenas, we have put some important restriction ranges on, and enforcement necessities that require elimination of followers that won’t put on masks at these occasions.

    • We’ve a journey advisory the place we advise the place to not go due to the extent of the virus.

    • We have put by means of an government order that gatherings at properties, casual, have to be 10 or much less.

    • Lengthy-term care, now we have extra testing than ever earlier than that is occurring and there are nonetheless restrictions on visitation, relying on the place a county is, and when there was a final constructive take a look at.

    • Correctional establishments, once more, testing and restrictions on who can go to, and that is onerous on the inmates and their households. We do it, regardless that it is onerous to maintain individuals secure.

    • Schools, universities, Okay-12 faculties, all with each day reporting that retains individuals updated and Okay-12 faculties with suggestions based mostly on our incident map about when they need to transfer to digital studying.

    • Sports activities, similar suggestions on the market about when the virus will get so huge they must be paused.

    • And eventually, we put collectively a simple to make use of, 10 steps on how we defeat COVID-19.

  • I am gonna stage with you, if extra individuals would comply with these restrictions, we would not must take extra steps. Dr Stack believes and I imagine, that if we really comply with these, if we get everyone shopping for in, if we might get lots of our shops again to implementing how many individuals are available in at anyone time and when that stage of individuals have gone there, no extra till individuals come out. If we might get again to carrying masks always once we’re speculated to right here, we would not have the extent of instances now we have proper now. However fatigue and, I assume a cultural battle, that is someway sprung up round what retains you alive and retains individuals round you alive, have led to much less compliance because the summer time ended and as we transfer into fall. And now’s not the time to surrender, Secretary Friedlander mentioned it is the time to dig in. It is the time the place extra individuals are going to be in danger than ever, and it’s the time and we want everyone to do higher. To people who are working onerous and doing their greatest, thanks, however stick with it, and dial it up. To those that have been at one level, We want you again, , it was sport time some time in the past nevertheless it’s now a crucial level the place you as part of Workforce Kentucky are wanted greater than ever.

  • And those that have refused: discuss to your minister, learn your Bible, carrying a masks isn’t a press release about your individual private freedom, it is about how a lot you care about anyone else. And please, do not be an individual that when anyone else is apprehensive about catching the virus that you just mocked for carrying a masks or that you just attempt to cough on one or that you just make a scene round, it is not okay.

  • However the reality is we’re the place we’re, even with the steps. And as we take a look at our incident map now we have extra crimson counties than ever earlier than. Now what occurs on the incident charge map, which will get it right down to the county stage when it turns crimson?

    • We requested for faculties to go digital.

    • We ask, in lots of instances, for sports activities to pause.

    • we prohibit visitation for these in long run care amenities, from their family members. That is what we ask.

  • However why is the county crimson? It is due to widespread neighborhood unfold. Does not imply it is essentially occurring within the faculties or spreading due to the colleges, it simply will unfold by means of the college, if there’s widespread neighborhood unfold. However proper now we’re simply asking the colleges to bear the brunt of that. Effectively, I imagine that we, as every one among these communities have an obligation first to forestall our county, our space from turning into crimson as a result of that places everyone that we reside round at risk. However I believe we actually have a accountability when our county turns into crimson to take a look at all the issues that we will do to minimize the unfold, to tamp down the numbers, to get again to orange and yellow, and you may view it as doing it to your personal private security or you possibly can view it for getting youngsters again at school.

  • So right now we will make some redzone suggestions that we suggest for each county after they go crimson. And there are two causes for this primary, now we have an obligation as a neighborhood when issues are out of hand to get them again below management, that is our obligation as a neighborhood of people. However the second purpose we’re making these, is to guard people who rightfully acknowledge how harmful this virus is. So pay attention, there are some which might be by no means going to comply with the recommendation, so what are you able to as a person that is aware of how harmful that is do, when the extent of unfold in your neighborhood is as much as the crimson level- which suggests you might be extra in danger and your loved ones is extra vulnerable to getting this than ever earlier than?

  • So listed here are our suggestions and what we suggest for every neighborhood is that very same Thursday night that we requested for faculties to verify after which to plan their subsequent week, we’re asking the neighborhood to do the identical. To know that we have to reside week by week on this virus. It is what it’ll take till we defeat it.

  • So, when on Thursday afternoon, a county is crimson. We ask throughout that subsequent week, beginning on Monday:

    • for all of our employers to permit any worker that may make money working from home, nearly, to make money working from home. We all know that that is not potential for lots of professions- however it’s with others. And the extra we will cut back density, irrespective of the place it’s, the higher. And if these that may make money working from home, make money working from home for that week we’ll see a lessening of the unfold of the virus.

    • We will ask and we will do that within the state workplaces as effectively. Throughout that subsequent week when a county is crimson, non-critical governmental workplaces function nearly. These are workplaces that may present the providers that they supply after they’re in particular person, nearly. There are some workplaces which might be going to have to remain open. However I can not put my those that work, finally for state authorities, at a better stage of threat once we’re asking different employers to make the identical sacrifice of letting their people, their workers make money working from home, and I care about my state workers.

    • We’re asking individuals to cut back in-person looking for that week. Please order native, however order on-line, decide it up curbside- proceed to help your native companies, however keep away from in-person purchasing.

    • Order takeout throughout that week- once more. Assist these eating places round you, however do extra takeout as a result of now we have to cut back our contacts.

    • Here is the following one which’s crucial and it’s from the White Home, I believed it was suggestion. If you are going to store in particular person, if you are going to dine out, prioritize these companies which might be doing it proper. In the event that they’re implementing the masks mandate, in the event that they’re implementing capability necessities, then you might be safer. And I believe you must ask every enterprise in your space earlier than going there, what they’re doing, the place they will be happy to promote it.
