Despite rising cases of the Coronavirus Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear says the positivity rate has been dropping the last ten days in the Commonwealth.

Restrictions are set to loosen Monday, restaurants, bars, pools, and area gyms can re-open at 50% capacity.

Chris Massey is a local gym owner in Owensboro, his fitness center taking extra precautions to keep people safe.

"At least they're allowing us to remain open. As long as we can do that and the members are coming and excising and using their memberships it still keeps revenue in the bank for us. So we're happy theres a happy medium for us at least to this point." says Massey.
Massey says he operates the largest private gym in Kentucky.

The business owner telling 44News he saw a decline in people interested in working out the last several months, the long time fitness coach blaming the pandemic and fatigue.

Masks must now be worn in all Kentucky recreational facilities at all times. Even while exercising until further notice.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another unseasonably warm day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Some areas could even see temperatures well into the 70s. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning. We won't see any rain from this front, but it will cool temperatures into the low 40s by Saturday morning.
