To help honor the now 5,000 Kentuckians lost to COVID-19 and the sacrifices of Kentuckians during the pandemic, Gov. Andy Beshear today launched the Team Kentucky COVID-19 Memorial Fund, which will help make a permanent memorial on Capitol grounds a reality.
Phase 1C has just been expanded to include all persons ages 16 or older with any medical or behavioral health condition or conditions that the CDC reports are or might be at increased risk of severe COVID-19 illness.
Gov. Andy Beshear says about a quarter of all Kentucky adults have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. He said at a virtual news briefing Monday that getting people vaccinated is a race against time against the virus. Kentucky reported 331 new confirmed coronavirus cases Monday. That’s the lowest number of new cases since Sept. 14, 2020.
