4/22/20- Governor Beshear introduces Healthy at Work initiative

In his evening press conference last night, Governor Andy Beshear announced that there are now 3,192 cases of COVID-19 in the Commonwealth. Of those cases, 177 were newly confirmed. It is believed that 1,226 people have recovered from the virus. However, yesterday saw 17 new deaths reported, the single greatest amount in a day, bringing the state’s total to 171. The Governor also introduced the Healthy at Work initiative, which offers a phased approach to reopening Kentucky’s economy. During phase one of Healthy at Work, the Kentucky Department for Public Health will determine whether Kentucky has met certain public health benchmarks, which closely followed the White House’s guidelines. Phase two will see the Department of Public Health evaluating individual businesses ability to safely reopen. Each business proposal is required to explain its ability to provide personal protective equipment to employees, adequate access to hand sanitizer and disinfectant, and minimal direct contact between employees and the public.
