FRANKFORT, KY (WOWK) – Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear confirmed 45 new COVID-19 cases for the state. As of now, there are no new deaths to report.
Beshear also asks Kentucky mayors to close down golf courses that are not following social distancing guidelines.
He says large groups can not gather anywhere. If Kentucky’s outdoor facilities are to remain open, Beshear says everyone there must practice social distancing. Those who go out for a run should also go alone, he says.
This also applies to retail stores and all other establishments, Beshear says. Everyone in the state must be practicing social distancing guidelines. If too many people enter the store, he says the doors should be closed until enough of the customers leave.
Also, Beshear says if a resident sees too many vehicles in a parking lot, they should come back later.
Department of Public Health Commissioner Dr. Steven Stack says he’s received reports of Kentucky churches still continuing to hold services. He says this must stop.
Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 should always work with their local health department, Stack says, with self-isolation recommendations and determining who the resident could have exposed.
