COVID-19 Update: Show Of Support, Current Numbers
Show Of Support
A new bulletin board featuring messages of support from the community is now at OHRH, across from Starbucks. The first display on the board is from Owensboro Catholic Schools K-3, 4-6, middle and high school students who used their spiritual hour to create cards, notes and letters of encouragement and thanks, and banners to show support for Owensboro Health employees. In total, students sent more than 1,500 items to show kindness and support for those who are working on the front lines of the pandemic.
COVID-19 By The Numbers
On Tuesday, Owensboro Health Regional Hospital had 69 COVID-19 positive inpatients -- the highest number since the pandemic began. This put the Owensboro Health system at 85 total across our three hospitals.
These graphics reflect the number of positive cases in our hospitals as of 8 a.m. this morning. Protect yourself and those around you by getting vaccinated.
