Eclipse 2017: LFCHD employees take part in historic event
Lexington-Fayette County Health Department employees each received a free pair of special glasses to allow the solar eclipse to be safely viewed. Employees gathered in the parking lot and around the building around 2:30 p.m. Monday as the eclipse hit its peak in Lexington, with the moon covering about 95 percent of the sun.
Looking through the pictures, you can see the light grow dimmer, although we didn’t reach totality like in western Kentucky. Environmental Health inspectors Matt Yarnall and Kara Stanfield spent the weekend and Monday in Hopkinsville to help with the crowds and to monitor any public health issues.
