FRANKFORT (WEHT)- Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear says there have now been over 300 recoveries from COVID-19 across the commonwealth.

Beshear announced 38 new COVID-19 cases across Kentucky Sunday, bringing the statewide total to 955 total. However, Beshear said Kentucky may not see a peak in COVID-19 cases for another month.

Beshear once again urged Kentuckians to follow social distancing guidelines and added that while Kentuckians can go out to exercise and shop for groceries, he says to avoid clusters of people. Beshear also asked Kentuckians to fill out the census, which helps determine how much federal funding Kentucky receives.
