Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear announcing 764 new positive COVID-19 cases and four more deaths in the bluegrass Saturday.
State health officials are reporting 255,563 total positive cases throughout the state and 2,534 total deaths.
Governor Beshear says as vaccines continue to arrive, he hopes all families had a safe and happy Christmas.
“The number of deaths we’re announcing today is truly heartbreaking – another wake-up call. But one piece of good news is that our positivity rate continues to decline. It was even under eight percent on Christmas Day,” said Gov. Beshear. “That means our sacrifices are making a difference. Thank you for doing the holidays differently this year to protect each other. Let’s keep working hard so we don’t have more days like today where we have to announce we’ve lost so many of our neighbors, family and friends.”
In the Tri-State, Muhlenberg County health officials reported 10 new COVID-19 cases Saturday bringing their total to 1,879.
