    What should we add to this page?

    This is a very difficult and stressful time, but we are a strong community, and by staying positive and working to support each other, we will get through this together.

    Why we don’t provide certain information about cases in Lexington

    Collecting other numbers and case information is a time-intensive process. Our Public Health staff are extremely busy managing the pandemic response in Lexington. They are in daily contact with all infected patients, as well as managing those in self-quarantine.

    They are also working closely with Lexington's nursing homes and other long-term care providers, as well as coordinating with local healthcare providers and the state Department of Public Health.

    As a result, we will not be posting quarantine numbers, or a breakdown of the cases by age and gender.

    Long-term care facilites, and Aloft Hotel

    We have 5 long-term care facilities in Lexington:

    • Brookhaven
    • Pine Knoll
    • Care One
    • Artis Senior Living
    • Youville.

    Case numbers for our LTCF are posted by county regularly on the State’s COVID-19 Dashboard. 

    Homeless patients who are being housed in the regional quaratine site at Aloft Hotel in Lexington do not count towards our case numbers. Only cases with a residential address in Lexington are reflected in our case count.
