Unfortunately, COVID-19 cases are rising again in the Tri-State. This is causing more and more businesses to require masks and social distancing. Police officers come in contact with a lot of people, so to help cut down on in-person interaction, the Morganfield, Kentucky Police Department has closed until further notice.
The department will continue to take calls and respond to emergencies 24/7. If you need a report or something specifically from the office, you are asked to call 270-389-4357 and they will take your information over the phone. When on calls, officers may ask you to social distance and take extra health precautions. Of course, if you have an emergency call 9-1-1.
Monday afternoon, Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear announced that there were 2,100 newly reported cases of COVID19 in the commonwealth and a positivity rate that has increased to 12.4%.
According to the Kentucky Department of Public Health, the majority of Kentucky counties are in the Red Zone.
Just a few months ago, I think we all had the quarantine and self-isolation guidelines memorized. When the vaccines started rolling out, we didn't really have to worry about close contact. Now that the Delta Variant is spreading quickly, there are some updated exposure recommendations.
