Beshear: COVID Now in All Kentucky Counties
By West Kentucky Star Staff
FRANKFORT - During Governor Andy Beshear's Monday update, he announced that someone has tested positive for COVID-19 in all 120 counties.

With the addition of a confirmed case in Robertson County, all 120 counties across Kentucky have now logged at least one positive case of COVID-19.

There are 117 new cases of the virus across the Commonwealth. A total of 394,773 Kentuckians have been tested for the virus, with 15,347 Kentuckians testing positive.

"This confirms what we've been saying for weeks: This disease is everywhere and because of that we need all Kentuckians to practice social distancing and wear masks to keep each other safe," Beshear said. "While we might see fewer cases in some areas right now, we know cases can spike quickly if we're not careful."

Beshear announced two new deaths related to the virus, bringing the total number of deaths to 560. At least 3,939 Kentuckians have recovered from the virus.

"Kentucky has been leading with compassion for our fellow citizens throughout this global pandemic," Beshear said. "We've made the changes and sacrifices to keep the most vulnerable among us safe from the coronavirus. Together, our efforts have saved thousands of lives in the commonwealth and now are allowing us to reopen our economy at a time when surging cases have caused other states to pull back."
