4/27/2020- First phase of reopening begins

In his evening press conference last night, Governor Andy Beshear announced that there are now 4,074 cases of COVID-19 in the Commonwealth. Of these cases, 202 were newly confirmed. It is believed that 1,511 people have recovered from the virus, however there were three new deaths announced on Sunday, bringing the state’s total to 208. Today marks the first easing of restrictions since the pandemic hit the state, with several healthcare practitioners being allowed to resume service. Governor Beshear says this step is important because people have not been able to go in to some types of visits and important appointments to keep themselves healthy aside from COVID-19. Also, the healthcare industry will need to be operating at a greater level in order to increase the testing capacity in the state. Non-urgent or emergent healthcare services and diagnostic radiology and lab services can be resumed in hospital outpatient settings, healthcare clinics and medical offices, physical therapy settings, chiropractic offices and optometrists, and dental offices. Each of these services will be required to use personal protective equipment, and to take extra precautions in order to remain in operation.
