On Wednesday, Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear is expected to announce new COVID-19 restrictions for the Bluegrass State.

During his Tuesday COVID-19 update to the Commonwealth, Gov. Beshear foretold of the new measures that would be announced on Wednesday.

"Tomorrow... We'll announce some new steps that we all, as Team Kentucky, will be taking," said Gov. Beshear on Tuesday.

When asked Tuesday to elaborate on the new steps that would be taken in the state's fight against COVID-19, Beshear said:

"We're gonna announce the steps tomorrow, but it is not going to look like March. March, when we had to do Healthy at Home, it was because we didn't have PPE that was desperately needed, we didn't have the testing capacity that we do now."

"So this will be more targeted - but we gotta stop this, so we're gonna do enough to stop it," he said. "They are not recommendations, they are steps that we are going to take, and that everyone has to take with us."

Gov. Beshear is expected to announce the new steps at 3:00 p.m. CST on Wednesday.
