39 new Kentucky coronavirus cases found. Total is 163. More businesses must close.

Posted 6:35 pm / March 24, 2020

Gov. Andy Beshear announced 39 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Kentucky Tuesday, including someone who attended a “coronavirus party,” bringing the statewide total to at least 163 cases.

He said four Kentuckians have fully recovered from the virus.

There are now 12 cases in the Northern Kentucky area. There are 9 in Kenton County, 2 in Boone County and 1 in Campbell County, says the NKY Health Department.

Beshear also said all businesses that aren’t “life-sustaining” must close to in-person traffic by end-of-business Thursday, the Lexington Herald-Leader reports.

He said he will issue an order Wednesday with specific details about which businesses will be impacted, but assured Kentuckians that grocery stores, pharmacies, gas stations, banks and other critical businesses will remain open.





He again encouraged all businesses to let employees work from home whenever possible.

“This thing is ramping up like we knew that it would and we have to be ready to protect our citizens,” Beshear said. “Please know that it is just the next step we need to take.”

Beshear said the order closing businesses will last for at least 10 days and can be renewed.
