Governor Andy Beshear issued two new orders today for Kentuckians to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in a day that saw the biggest single jump so far.
The first order was to limit those visiting essential retail businesses to one per household. The order is to prevent a family outing or "date night," with exceptions. The order will allow minor children or anyone with a special need with one parent, guardian, or caregiver; however, the governor's exceptions are meant as a last resort for adults that have no other option than to bring their dependents along.
The second order will prohibit any type of door-to-door sales, fundraising, or any other type of contact. The Governor said there have been reports of door-to-door activity which could spread illness.
The Barren River District Health Department reported no new coronavirus cases in Edmonson County; however, there were 7 new cases reported in the area. Confirmed are: Barren 3, Butler 5, Edmonson 6, Hart 1, Logan 4, Simpson 14, and Warren 35.
Beshear reported 204 new confirmed COVID-19 cases in Kentucky today, for a total of 1,346 cases. He also said there have been at least 339 recoveries from the virus statewide.
