In his Friday Morning news conference, Governor Andy Beshear announced some changes making its way to Kentucky.
"On June 11th, we will also lift our mask mandate for all Kentuckians, with the exception of where people are most vulnerable, " says Beshear.
This comes after the CDC made the unexpected announcement on Thursday, that fully vaccinated individuals will not be required to mask up indoors...with a few exceptions.
And now, local restaurants are deciding what to do in the mean time.
"If you wear one that's great, if you don't, who am I to judge what you do," says Josh Bennett, Owner of ChefWhat BBQ & More
Bennett, who opened his restaurant, mid-pandemic, doesn't really think this up-lift will affect his restaurant. He says his customers have been very respectful.
"As far as a business owner myself, I feel its the customers decision to wear it or not. Who am i to say that you have to or not?," says Bennett.
And while some restaurants have already decided they will no longer enforce this, others are still deciding what to do for the next month.
"I think this will be scary to some. it's been like this for a year, and you know,what's normal? Is it going to work?," Says Eastgate manager, Hayley Lindsey.
Lindsey says, they have not had any issues enforcing the mandate. They just want to provide great customer service.
"You don't want to upset people, you want to make your customers happy, i'll never turn anyone away if they forget or don't have a mask," Lindsey adds.
According to Beshear, before the state opens 100%, starting May 28th, all Restaurants and Business can operate at 75% capacity.
