LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The string of new coronavirus numbers falling below 80 ended Friday with Fayette County reporting one of its highest days on record.

One death was reported, lifting the total number of people lost to coronavirus-related causes at 81.

The number of new cases among college students reported to the health department also continued to be low.
Saturday’s report put that total at 2,436, an increase of 10 from the previous report.
