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.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
