Beshear Open to Easing Virus Rules

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear has signaled he will consider loosening more coronavirus-related restrictions before the state reaches a key vaccination target. He said Monday that nearly 1.85 million Kentuckians have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine. That’s slightly more than half the statewide population age 16 and older.
Once 2.5 million of the state’s residents receive at least their first shot, Beshear has pledged to lift capacity and physical distancing restrictions for nearly all businesses, venues and events catering to 1,000 or fewer patrons.
Anyone 16 or older is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Kentucky.
