Ok this message is not a good one. Lexington has 10 new households today with at least one active Covid-19 case. Some have more than one. We also are aware that some folks have used the new home test and not reported that they have tested positive.

If you attended Bingo Friday night at the Moose lodge, you should watch for symptoms and get tested. There are local tests available at CVS and a few other spots here in town.

Most of the folks that are getting sick are unvaccinated and we have had a few breakthrough cases where vaccinated folks are getting a mild case of the virus.

IF YOU ARE ILL STAY HOME! GET TESTED! Vaccine is available at CVS, HCC via appointment, the Health Department. If you want the vaccine now is the time to get it done.

Last week Tom White owner of International Energy Alliance,asked me what I needed most of all for our Covid 19 response. I said a UltraViolet light sterilization unit for our masks! After some research Tom got all the needed materials and made one from scratch! Today he delivered that unit and we are placing it in service! Not only did he build it he donated all the time and materials! Thank You Tom from all the area healthcare workers that this device will protect! Chief Weber.
