HOPKINS CO., Ky (WEHT) Hopkins County officials report a handful of new coronavirus cases, and two more deaths from the virus.
The total number of positive cases is now at 211, that’s up five from the weekend. Officials also report two more deaths, bringing the total to 24. There have a total of 107 people who have recovered.
Effective Monday, the Hopkins County Judge Executive has rescinded the curfew. Next Friday, he will rescind the order to close county offices. However, the clerk’s office will be appointment-only for a couple of weeks.
The court house will reopen to foot traffic and court proceedings on June 1. This is a tentative date, and it could change. When it does reopen, social distancing policies will be implemented, you will be required to wear a face mask, and only parties to a case and their attorneys will be allowed inside the building.
All these details will be updated on the Hopkins County Circuit Court Facebook page.
As for drivers licenses, the court house is still waiting on word from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet on when they will begin issuing/renewing licenses.
Officials remind people that Governor Andy Beshear has issued an order for a 90-day extension of all licenses that have expired in the past couple of months.
REAL ID implementation has also been pushed back. You now have an extra year, until October 2021, to get your REAL ID.
