If you are fearful that you may have COVID-19 call 1-800-722-5725 for information or call your local health provider. Most cases of COVID-19 are mild to moderate. It is vital to take precautions to protect those with chronic illnesses and the elderly.

Working together and following the proven public health practices described on the kycovid19.ky.gov webpage is the best way our community can slow the spread of COVID-19, ensuring that the City of Morehead and Rowan County has the fewest cases possible.
