Possible Plateau In Kentucky COVID-19 Battle

Governor Andy Beshear says the state could be in another plateau in the battle against COVID-19 with less than 500 new cases reported on Sunday.

In his daily update Governor Beshear announced 463 additional cases of COVID-19, pushing the statewide total to 31,185. He says eleven of the new cases were children 5 and younger.
The Governor says what we appear to be seeing is a plateau in the growth of coronavirus cases in the state. He adds wearing a mask, social distancing and not traveling to other states where there are virus hot spots appears to be making a difference. Beshear added he needs to see the trend continue to avoid having to make hard choices and sacrifices.
Governor Beshear also reported two additional deaths Sunday, raising the COVID-19 death toll to 742. The deaths were reported in Oldham and Muhlenberg counties. The Muhlenberg County death was a 70-year-old Woman, with the Oldham County death a 56-year-old man.
Public Health Commissioner Dr. Steve Stack says as the state continues to fight COVID-19 with personal choices about travel, crowd sizes, thorough and frequent hand-washing and face masks, there is still a need to keep other considerations in mind.
