A federal appeals panel has upheld Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear’s order to stop in-person classes at religious schools during the coronavirus pandemic.

The ruling, issued Sunday by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, overturns a federal judge's decision from last week, which granted an injunction to prevent the governor from enforcing his order on private or religious schools.

The November 18th Executive Order prohibits in-person instruction at elementary and secondary schools. Elementary schools can resume in-person classes on Dec. 7 if they are no longer in "red zone" counties and follow COVID-19 guidelines. Middle and high schools may reopen no sooner than Jan. 4, 2021.

Governor Andy Beshear taking to social media Sunday to share the Sixth Court has recognized the surge of coronavirus cases in the Bluegrass.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
