April Whitaker, Ava Wright, Nikita Vundi, David Eastham, Juanih Campbell, Kelley McBride

Congratulations to our own Dave Eastham for receiving recognition as an "Unsung Hero" in Madison County. After seeking nominations from the public and Madison County institutions, the Register's Unsung Hero selection committee narrowed down the nominees to 15 finalists in seven categories (see link). The event was sponsored by The Richmond Register, Baptist Health Richmond, EKU Catering, and the Newby Country Store. A well-deserved honor!

What is Monkeypox?

Monkeypox is a rare disease caused by infection with the monkeypox virus. Monkeypox virus is part of the same family of viruses as smallpox. Monkeypox symptoms are similar to smallpox symptoms, but milder, and monkeypox is rarely fatal. At present, there are only two known cases of Monkeypox in Kentucky.

Symptoms of monkeypox can include:

Sometimes, people get a rash first, followed by other symptoms. Others only experience a rash.

For more information, check out the CDC's Frequently Asked Questions about Monkeypox.

Kentucky has a state-specific web site with a state hotline, (844)520-6670, for questions about available treatment and vaccines.

CDC’s new COVID-19 Quarantine and Isolation calculator takes the stress out of deciding when, and for how long, people with COVID-19 and close contacts need to stay home, get tested, and wear a well-fitting mask.

The calculator provides important information about what precautions people with COVID-19 and their close contacts can take to protect loved ones and prevent COVID-19 in their communities.

This online, mobile-friendly calculator provides a simple, easy-to-use way to help people follow CDC’s Quarantine and Isolation guidance and get customized information that applies to their unique situation.
