The Kentucky Department for Public Health said Friday that another 930 Kentuckians had tested positive for COVID-19.

After 930 new positive cases of the virus were reported on Friday, KDPH listed 65,066 total positive cases of the virus throughout the state - 57,366 of which were classified as Confirmed and 7,700 of which were classified as Probable.

There were also 12 new COVID-19 deaths reported across Kentucky on Friday.

“Today’s COVID report is far too many cases and unfortunately far too many people who we’ve lost,” Gov. Beshear said on Friday. “This virus has come for us. We have to fight back.”

“We cannot continue to have days where we have 900-plus cases,” said Gov. Beshear. “Please put on your mask. Please engage in social distancing. The lives and the health of the Kentuckians around us depend on it.”

Beshear mandated masks throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky on July 10, and has since extended the mandate several times, citing its success in slowing the spread of COVID-19.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
