In order to help streamline information for residents of Downtown Lexington and beyond, we are going to use this page as a hub for community resources and information about COVID-19. While we are not experts on the subject, we are happy to help where we can and point you in the direction of those who are experts or those who can provide you with resources from public health officials.
