Kentucky's governor gave a COVID-19 update to the Commonwealth on Wednesday.
"The White House did give us our counties once again that they view in the Red and in the Yellow," Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear said on Wednesday.
According to Beshear, several Kentucky counties within the Tri-State area are in the White House's "Yellow Zone," while one local county is also in the "Red Zone."
Beshear said Union County was one of 13 Kentucky counties in the "Red Zone," according to the White House's COVID-19 data. For a county to be in the red zone, it must have a positivity rate of 10% or higher.
The latest COVID-19 death in Union County was reported earlier on Wednesday by the Green River District Health Department. 219 total positive COVID-19 cases have been identified in Union County by GRDHD to date.
Gov. Beshear then displayed a larger list of Kentucky counties in the "Yellow Zone," which included Henderson, Muhlenberg, and Daviess counties.
On Wednesday, Beshear said there were 776 new positive cases of COVID-19 throughout Kentucky, and that 91 of those new positive cases were identified in kids under the age of 18.
"We continue to see this trend where more and more kids are testing positive, they're becoming a bigger percentage," said Beshear. "I think it's for a couple reasons, one: thankfully kids are being tested more often, two: they're out doing more."
Wednesday's update brought the total number of COVID-19 cases identified in the state to 58,764. Beshear said the state's positivity rate was now 3.89%.
