Daviess County is the only Green River District county left in the red zone.

On Monday, Kentucky will begin Phase 1C of its vaccination process. This means anyone 60 and older, non-healthcare essential workers and those 16 and older with a high risk medical condition will be eligible to receive the vaccine.

This is welcomed news in Daviess County where we are told about a quarter of the county's population has been vaccinated.

Judge Executive Al Mattingly says the community has made promising strides toward slowing the spread of the virus, "We are rapidly finishing up with 1A. My understanding that is the federal contract with all the nursing homes we've made two passes and about to make a third. We do want to remind anyone who waited in 1A, 1B, OR 1C, you can still get it, it just won't be delivered to your workplace."

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear echoing those sentiments saying as regional vaccination sites can move to Phase 1C, he hopes local health departments will work to get vaccines to those in Phase 1A and 1B who may have missed sign-ups.

Monday morning, we will see partly sunny skies with temperatures still in the mid 20°s. By the afternoon, we will be warming up into the mid 40°s with cloud coverage increasing. This is due to a cold front expected to traverse the tri-state overnight Monday.
