In his evening press conference last night, Governor Andy Beshear announced that there are now at least 5,245 cases of COVID-19 in the Commonwealth. Of these cases, 163 were newly confirmed. It is believed that 1,921 Kentuckians have recovered from the virus, however there were eight new deaths reported on Monday, bringing the state’s total to 261. As the first phase of Healthy at Work begins to roll out next week, this Wednesday will see the beginning of Phase Two of healthcare reopening in the state. This next phase will include outpatient and ambulatory surgery and invasive procedures. However, these procedures must still follow new rules and guidelines set by the state and the Kentucky Department for Public Health, including required personal protective equipment, closed common areas, and specific procedure guidance. Also, the Governor announced a partnership with Saint Elizabethtown Healthcare to bring expanded testing to Erlanger and other locations in Northern Kentucky.
