Friday, Nov. 13, 2020 — Nelson County reported 51 new COVID-19 cases on Friday by the Lincoln Trail District Health Department.

Despite the high number, the daily incidence rate of COVID-19 in Nelson County dropped slightly on Friday, from 88.1 to 84.7. Nelson County has the fifth-highest incidence rate as of Friday among all 120 Kentucky counties (see the map below).

The incident rate is calculated by taking the total number of unique cases in each county over the past seven days, divided by seven to get a daily average, divided by the U.S. census bureau county population and multiplied by 100,000 to get the incidence per 100,000 people.
Duplicate cases are removed so that positive cases are recorded only one time.
