Gov. Beshear updates Kentucky’s travel ban

Kentucky News

FRANKFORT, Ky (WEHT) After a federal judge declared Governor Andy Beshear’s travel ban unconstitutional, the governor made a revision he believes will satisfy the law.

Beshear says the new executive order looks more like Ohio’s travel ban.

The main difference between Beshear’s previous order and this one is an added phrase in the section that discusses the 14-day quarantine after traveling to another state. The phrase says,

“when as part of their normal life live in one state and work or deliver services in another state.”

A group of plaintiffs who attended a church service in Louisville had filed suit against Beshear, challenging the travel and mass gatherings bans.
