Three new positive cases of COVID-19 were identified in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky, by the local health department on Monday.

The confirmed case total for Muhlenberg County is now 610, according to the health department's Monday update.

Of those 610 total positive cases in the county, there are currently 35 active and 566 recovered. 32 of the active cases in the county are currently recovering at home, while three are hospitalized with the virus.

Nine total Muhlenberg County residents have passed away from COVID-19.

Due to an increase in positive cases throughout the state of Kentucky, Governor Andy Beshear on Monday announced new steps to curb the spread of the virus in the state - including the closing of all Kentucky bars for two weeks, and the reduction of indoor restaurant seating to 25% capacity.

Kentucky's governor has made other recent attempts at slowing the spread of COVID-19 in the Bluegrass State, including making masks mandatory statewide, in addition to tightening restrictions on social gatherings and out-of-state travel.
