Beshear said he hopes the state will reach phase 2 by May 22. Phase 2 includes reopening restaurants at limited capacity, reopening movie theaters and campgrounds.

First Care Clinics cover most insurance planes and Medicare/Medicaid. First Care also has a program for people without health care coverage so they can get tested.

You will not need to have coronavirus symptoms to get tested.

Kentucky also now has an interactive map so you can find locations to get tested for COVID-19.
