Lists of Retailers Ordered To Close And Those Remaining Open
Governor Andy Beshear said Sunday that all nonessential retailers are being ordered to close within 24 hours and that he is mandating all elective medical procedures end. Beshear said these actions are intended to help protect Kentuckians and halt the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). This order will go into effect on Monday, March 23rd by 7pm CST.
Beshear announced 103 confirmed cases, and said Kentucky remains at three deaths related to COVID-19. The Governor said that more than 2,000 tests have now been performed and of those tests, the average age of someone who has gotten the virus is 53.3 – and that the intensive care rate is about 6 percent.
Beshear had also previously recommended that all elective medical procedures cease, but mandated those stop, effective Monday. He said the additional action was necessary since some groups have failed to follow the order and that more restrictive actions were needed to protect Kentuckians.
There have been four confirmed cases of the virus in Warren County with none confirmed yet in Edmonson County.
Below is a guide for the type of retailers that can remain open and the ones ordered closed.
