Clothing, entertainment, sporting good and other non-essential retail to be closed by tomorrow night

At a press conference on Sunday evening, Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear announced all non-essential retail businesses will need to close to in-person traffic by Monday at 8 PM EST.

Non-essential businesses included in this new round of closures include clothing, entertainment, sporting goods, shoes, and others. This does not include grocery stores, pharmacies, or places needed by Kentuckians to get their necessary items.

He added businesses like auto repair will remain open for the time being. Liquor stores will also remain open.

Beshear also said his suggestion that all elective medical procedures cease is now mandatory.

A “shelter in place” was not announced. When answering a question about this policy, Beshear said it has not currently been discussed and added Kentucky is taking the right steps to stop the spread of coronavirus and such action is not necessary at this time.

Beshear announced Kentucky now has 103 confirmed cases of COVID-19. He said this is to be expected and citizens should not be alarmed as the state is expecting an increase in cases.
