On Monday, Gov. Andy Beshear reported that Kentucky has the lowest positivity rate since July 3, 2020. The new positivity rate is a little under three percent.
Beshear stated "“We’ve come too far, and we’ve lost too much to mess this up now. So please continue to wear your masks until we get everybody vaccinated,” “And if you’re thinking about not taking the vaccine, think harder. Think about all the individuals you can protect. Think about how much they need your help to ensure we can continue what we see today, of fewer and fewer cases and fewer and fewer losses.
The Governor also added that more than one million Kentuckians have been vaccinated. In his press conference he also warned families to stay proactive by wearing mask and avoid crowded areas while traveling for spring-break. He recommends families who end up in high-risk situations to stay home and remote learn for a couple weeks after returning home.
