MADISONVILLE, Ky. (WEHT)- Madisonville Mayor Kevin Cotton and Hopkins County Judge Executive Jack Whitfield Jr. say the county now has 62 confirmed cases, making it the fastest growing county in Kentucky. Within our Tri-State area, Hopkins County also has the most confirmed cases.
Whitfield says that the actual number of cases within the county could be much higher but those cases aren’t confirmed. Whitfield recommends that people should act as though they have the virus and are trying not to spread it to someone else.
Cotton and Whitfield reminded residents that out-of-state hunting permits have been suspended for turkey season as a measure to limit the potential spread of COVID-19.
