COVID-19 Patient Guidance

January 2022 is on track to be record breaking! In the last seven days, the Health Department has confirmed 521 new cases in our county.  We are working diligently but have been overwhelmed by this surge in cases. 

Here are ways you can help your community:

  • If you are a resident of Clark County and test positive (excluding at home tests, as state guidance does not recognize these results), please see the resource linked below for guidance to follow.  CCHD remains a resource for the community, please email us ClarkHDDOC@ky.gov or call 859-744-4482.     
  • Please continue to be mindful of social distancing, hand washing, cleaning, sanitizing and wearing a mask in public.  If you are not feeling well, please stay home and be tested.
  • Please be patient with testing facilities as they are working as fast as they can through this surge and demand for testing.  There may be some delay in reporting to the health department during this surge.   
  • Vaccines are still very effective at reducing the symptoms and alleviating hospitalizations for those who may become COVID-19 positive.  If you are interested in receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, please visit our website (https://www.clarkhealthdept.org/vaccineinformation.html) for upcoming vaccine clinic dates.  
Thank you for your continued support and patience. 



Resource Guide



The Clark County Mental Health & Substance Misuse Community Resource Guide has been compiled by the collaborative efforts of the Clark County Health Department, Clark County Mental Health Task Force and Clark County Agency for Substance Abuse Policy (ASAP).  The guide has been developed to serve as a quick reference to assist those seeking help for themselves or a loved one with mental illness or a substance use disorder.
