KY Gov Halts Indoor Dining And In-Person Learning

Frankfort’s Fox News affiliate reports:

Gov. Andy Beshear unveiled new, targeted actions Wednesday to address the exponential growth of COVID-19 in Kentucky, including temporary halts to indoor dining and in-person learning. “When addressing COVID-19, action is unpopular,” Beshear acknowledged, “but inaction is deadly.”

“The defeat of this virus, we can see it, we can almost taste it,” Beshear said, referring to recent promising news from Pfizer and Moderna about the efficacy of their vaccines. “It is time we do what it takes to finish this fight.”

All K-12 schools will switch to remote learning beginning Nov. 23. Elementary schools will be allowed to reopen on Dec. 7 based on the rate of transmission in their counties and they follow public health guidance.
