One of the confirmed COVID-19 cases in Hardin County over the last two days is a 7-year-old boy.

The other two cases announced for Hardin County the last two days are a 56-year-old female and a 50-year-old female, according a list on Gov. Andy Beshear's website.

The other two Hardin County cases are a 6-year-old female Heartland Elementary School student that was announced last Friday and a 21-year-old female announced last Sunday. There is no information available at this point if the two children attended school together.

The one confirmed case in LaRue County is a male, 72.

One of the cases announced today - either the 50-year-old or 56-year-old female - is a Fort Knox civilian employee based on data released by the governor's office. A news release from Fort Knox Friday afternoon said the employee didn't live on Fort Knox.

According to the release, "Installation officials are monitoring the situation and working closely with local and state health department officials on prevention and response efforts. Additionally, Fort Knox leaders continue to provide the community with up-to-date information on appropriate measures to prevent potential spread of the virus.''

Fort Knox Public Affairs would not identify where the person works on post. The health department said the individual is in isolation at home.

One of the confirmed cases in the last two days is at Hardin Memorial Hospital, according to an HMH news release.

“The patient is currently in isolation. All recommended precautions are being taken to protect the patient and staff. The medical team is evaluating and monitoring the progress of this patient in close collaboration with the Lincoln Trail District Health Department, the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services and the Centers for Disease Control,” Tracee Troutt, HMH vice president and chief development officer, said in the release.

All of the Hardin County cases have been confirmed since last Friday.

As of 5 p.m. today, there have been 302 confirmed cases and eight deaths attributed to the coronavirus. There have been 104 confirmed cases the last two days.
