Gov. gives COVID-19 update, discusses Executive Order restricting in-person services

Gov. announced 198 total cases today.

35 new cases.

Fewer new cases today than new cases yesterday, which many states can't say.

No confirmed cases in Meade County.


Encouraged the pubic to spread positivity on social media using the hashtags #TeamKentucky and #TeamKy


Gov. said that the next 2-3 weeks will be critical, and he encouraged the public to "ratchet it up" and diligently practice recommended changes, such as social distancing. He said that the efforts being made were showing results.


Healthy at Home doesn't mean that you can't go outside. Going outside is healthy. But, remember to practice social distancing when doing so.


Don't go to the grocery store, bank, or another business out of boredom. Go when you need to, avoid lingering otherwise.


Announced that groups including small business owners and substitute teachers can now apply for unemployment.


Discussed Executive Order, construed broadly to prohibit in-person work that is not necessary to protect or sustain life. Encouraged businesses to conduct business via the telephone or other means that don't involve person-to-person contact.
