Kentuckians Will Be Required to Wear Face Masks or Coverings in Public Places Beginning Today

FRANKFORT, Ky. — Kentuckians will be required to wear face masks or coverings in public places beginning Friday.

The mask requirement announced by Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear comes after Kentucky recorded two of the highest days of confirmed coronavirus cases since the pandemic hit the state. Kentucky announced 333 new cases and four deaths Thursday.

Beshear says the increased case counts from the last few days along with an “explosion” in other states prompted him to issue the executive order. About two dozen other states have issued mask mandates in public places.
