Kentucky State is open, but activities are heavily restricted.
Positive news in the Commonwealth, though national cases are on the rise
According to WFPL in Louisville, cases have gone down for 11 consecutive weeks in the Commonwealth while cases on the national level have begun to rise. WFPL also reported that 40 percent of Kentuckians 18 and older have received a vaccination. 

While there is good news here, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently urged Americans to continue double masking, social distancing, washing hands often and other vigilant practices because of the rising national cases and the possibility of a fourth wave of massive COVID-19 cases and deaths. 

Hopefully many members of our Thorobred family have now received at least one dose of the vaccine, as Kentucky State has offered appointments on two different dates. Please continue to get tested, as upcoming dates are available. 

Wild Health will be at the William Exum center, parking lot side, rear gymnasium every Friday beginning April 9, 2021 for COVID-19 PCR Surveillance Testing. This testing site will also be advertised to the Franklin County community at large.
