FRANKFORT, Ky. (WEHT) — Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear announced on Wednesday that face masks will need to be worn for at least another 30 days in the Commonwealth.
He asks that Kentuckians always wear a mask while in public, and to stop gathering with anyone outside of your household until cases go down sharply.
Beshear said, “If you’re having a gathering anywhere, whether it’s your house, or one of these facilities, and they are large, and nobody’s wearing masks — we can’t be doing that. It’s going to spread the virus.”
He added, “The virus is out there at an unprecedented level, and you’re bringing a whole bunch of people together. You’re putting their health at risk.”
Governor Beshear also signed an Executive Order allowing pharmacists to give a 30-day refill of certain medications to those whose prescription has expired.
