Beshear Backs Schools Starting with Online Classes
By The Associated Press
FRANKFORT - Kentucky's governor says he supports local school leaders who decide to begin the academic year with online instruction as a precaution against the coronavirus.

Kentucky reported 700 new virus cases Tuesday, sharply higher than a day earlier.

But Gov. Andy Beshear says there are signs of a “general leveling off” in statewide infections.

Beshear says he's not surprised some school districts are opting for digital learning at the outset of the school year.

He recently recommended that schools wait until at least the third week of August to resume in-person classes to help curb the virus’s spread.
