Beshear: Another Record Day for COVID
By West Kentucky Star Staff
FRANKFORT - On Friday, Governor Andy Beshear once again reported the state's highest ever number of new COVID-19 cases.

"This is exponential growth. It is shattering records over and over until we stop it. That's why we are taking action – we have to," said Gov. Beshear. "We've got more than 10,000 students quarantined right now just based on the last two weeks alone. We've got to do so much better."

Beshear continued, "That's why starting at 5 p.m. today, we've got new restrictions in place to help us slow down this speeding train and prevent avoidable death. Remember, your decisions are going to be what determines how many people live or die. Do your part."

Beshear reported 3,825 new cases and 20 new deaths. The deaths include a 93-year-old woman from Marshall County.

Kentucky's positivity rate is currently 9.15 percent.
