Gov. Beshear announces 191 new COVID-19 cases, urges healthy practices

In his regularly scheduled update on Wednesday, Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear reminded people of the healthy at work standards while announcing 191new cases of COVID-19 in the state.

Those cases put the overall total at 11,883, and Governor Beshear says that although it’s easy to return to normal and grow lax, it’s vital that people remember this virus is out there and can still be deadly to some individuals.

Now 302,347 individuals have been tested for the virus and all but one Kentucky county have reported cases of COVID-19, and Governor Beshear says the numbers have fluctuated the past week, but they remain manageable.

Seven more Kentuckians have died—including three individuals from a long-term care facility in Logan County—putting that total at 484. So far, 3,375 people have recovered from the coronavirus in Kentucky.  The Governor reminded also to make sure you go online to and request an absentee ballot to vote in the June 23 primary—the deadline to request one is June 15.

He says his administration continues to attempt to address problems with unemployment claims, with there still remaining a large amount of people who filed in March that have yet to receive unemployment.

The Tennessee Department of Health is reporting 294 more COVID-19 cases, putting their total at 27,869 with 436 total deaths.  Montgomery County is now at 309 cases, Robertson County gained four cases to 584 and Stewart County remains at 14 cases.
