FRANKFORT, Ky. (KFVS) - Governor Andy Beshear gave a Team Kentucky update on Monday, March 14.
“A lot of good news for our COVID-19 update today,” said Gov Beshear. “The top line today is that while we still have some struggles, things continue to move in the right direction, and they are continuing to move at a regular pace. Every metric is moving in the right direction.”
The positivity rate continues to decline as each day last week saw a decrease in the positivity rate.
The governor announced he will be pausing the weekly COVID news conferences.
“We know so much more about the virus and how to fight it. In many ways, it has become a part of our daily lives,” said Gov Beshear. “If today is the last update we give, living with COVID is not ignoring COVID. It is having the information to be empowered to make the right decision and to protect ourselves.”
