Rowan County moved into a red category on the COVID-19 map released by state health officials last week.
The new designation means Rowan had 43 or more cases within a seven day period, and means schools cannot offer in person instruction or host sporting events.
Rowan County Judge Executive Harry Clark says he is doing everything he can to make sure community leaders have the most accurate information possible.
Clark says most of the new cases are rowan county residents not affiliated with Morehead State University. Update maps can be found at govstatus.egov.com/kycovid19
