And even 2,700 new cases of covid-19 in Kentucky yesterday, the state’s newest record for most cases in a day. The new total continues to escalate the state’s positivity rate, which now sits at 8.12%. That’s the highest the positivity rate has been since early May. Hardin county, which has seen rising cases over the past several weeks, was included in the group of counties with most positive cases for the day, alongside counties like Jefferson, Fayette, and neighboring Nelson county. Because of Veteran’s Day observance, the daily, local reporting of covid-19 cases in the Lincoln Trail service area was not available.
