FRANKFORT, Ky. (WEHT) — Governor Andy Beshear announced 114 new cases and seven COVID-19 deaths at his briefing Tuesday.

Beshear says the state is working on drive up testing and proof of concept in Franklin County. He is expanding childcare options that previously included first responders and healthcare workers to grocery store workers as well.

Beshear says he will sign an executive order giving some first responders the opportunity to come back to serve.

He reminded fiscal courts that his executive orders apply and he recommends virtual meetings and says they need to make sure in-person meetings aren’t happening. He says the public needs to have a way to dial in and watch.

Beshear also says no yard sales until after COVID-19 is over.

Officials asked people to not randomly be wearing masks in public but if you’re sick, you can wear one to prevent germs from being spread.

Beshear continues to remind Kentuckians to practice social distancing.
