A total of 141 more cases of COVID-19 and 95 recoveries were confirmed Saturday for the Green River District, including 45 cases and 42 recoveries in Daviess County. Coronavirus-related deaths were reported in Daviess (1), McLean (1) and Ohio (1) counties.

After the medical records and death certificates were reviewed by Kentucky Department for Public Health, they determined that COVID-19 was not a contributing factor to two previously reported deaths and they have been removed from the totals (one each from Henderson and Webster counties).
