Governor Basheer said Monday he would discuss new recommendations for counties in the red zone.
“We’re going to tamper with these cases. The more cases, the more people come to the hospital and the more people die,” Gov. Basheer said.
Right now, the governor reports that 840 Kentuckians with COVID-19 have been hospitalized. Of those, 208 patients are currently in the ICU, and 107 are on ventilators.

“We are all fed up with COVID-19 and the problems it has brought,” said Dr. Steven Stack, commissioner of public health. “People are hurting, whether it’s from the virus or the rest of our lives. It’s all bad, though, when we don’t do simple tasks like wearing masks and social distance. As October approaches, please be kind to each other and remember that we help each other and ourselves when we focus on defeating the virus rather than arguing with each other. “
