Gov. Andy Beshear says Kentucky's senior centers will reopen at full capacity starting June 11.

It's the latest coronavirus-related restriction nearing an end.

The reopening date will come on the same day that most of the state's COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.

Beshear said Tuesday that the increasing number of vaccinations makes it safe to let Kentuckians gather once again at senior centers.

While senior centers were closed, Beshear says Kentuckians "stepped up" to ensure that services continued for senior citizens. He says that included a 200% increase in meal deliveries, with 4 million meals served to seniors during the pandemic.

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.
