Fayette’s seven-day moving COVID average drops to 10

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Fayette County’s seven-day moving COVID average has fallen to 10, continuing a slow but steady decline that has sent the rate to the lowest since spring 2020.

It comes as the health department sets another pop-up weekend clinic to try to continue to grow the number of people vaccinated in the community.

According to the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department, anyone ages 18 and older can get a free one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine 1-3 p.m. Sunday, June 6, at Church Under the Bridge, 203 E. Fourth St. No appointment needed.

The county confirmed 13 cases Wednesday, according to the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department’s morning report Thursday. The 13 cases pushed the total since March 2020 to 35,307.

It’s still unclear how much the Memorial Day holiday may have played a role in lowering the numbers because of fewer tests.

The seven-day moving average dropped from 11 to 10.

The 689 cases in May was the lowest number since May 2020.

The county reported no new deaths, leaving that grim statistic at 316 lost to COVID-related causes since March 2020.

• 110, March
