    Governor Andy Beshear on Thursday updated Kentuckians on guidelines for reopening safely as the state battles COVID-19.

    Child care reopening

    Today, Cabinet for Health and Family Services Secretary Eric Friedlander announced that on June 8, in-home child care programs can open. On June 15, center-based licensed child care programs can reopen to all families.

    The maximum group size will be 10 children per group. Children will remain in the same groups all day and staff will be assigned to the same children each day to reduce exposure. All adults must wear a face mask while in any child care program (in-home or center-based). Children 5 or younger should not wear masks, but older children may wear masks as they are able.

    Healthy at Work
    Today, the Governor also announced auctions could be held starting June 1. Horse shows can be held again starting on June 8. Bars, gatherings with 50 people or fewer, and venues that hold 50 people or fewer can reopen June 29 if they meet guidelines.

    Businesses that are opening May 22 at 33% capacity can expand to 50% capacity a month later, on June 22, if they meet the guidelines.

    For more information on the timeline and industry requirements, visit the Kentucky Healthy at Work website.

    Memorial Day Weekend
    Keeping safe while celebrating together is crucial as we enter the traditional start of the summer season. Gov. Beshear and state health officials are asking all Kentuckians to keep gatherings to 10 or fewer people.

    Other guidance includes wearing masks, maintaining social distancing of six feet or more, gathering outside instead of inside, washing hands frequently, and covering food and individually wrapping plates.

    Testing expansion
    On Thursday, Gov. Beshear continued to encourage Kentuckians to get tested for COVID-19. Kentucky’s testing capacity now exceeds the daily average recommended by the White House to safely begin reopening the economy.

    The recommended per capita testing rate is 100 per 100,000. In the seven days ending Tuesday, the daily average of Kentuckians tested per 100,000 residents was significantly higher at 138.

    Information on how to register at more than 70 sites throughout the commonwealth can be found at 

    Case information
    As of 5 p.m. May 21, Gov. Beshear said there were at least 8,236 coronavirus cases in Kentucky, 135 of which were newly confirmed Thursday.

    At least 3,008 Kentuckians have recovered from the virus.

    Unfortunately, Gov. Beshear also reported 10 new deaths Thursday, raising the total to 386 Kentuckians lost to the virus.
