My name is Nobu Masuda.  This is a recap of Governor Andy Beshear's COVID-19 update for Tuesday, August 4, 2020, translated by the Japan/America Society of Kentucky. 

Gov. Andy Beshear on Tuesday updated Kentuckians on the state’s continuing efforts to fight COVID-19 in the commonwealth.

Case Information
As of 4 p.m. Aug. 4, Gov. Beshear said there were at least 32,197 coronavirus cases in Kentucky, 700 of which were newly reported Tuesday. Eighteen of the newly reported cases were from children ages 5 and younger.

As of Tuesday, there have been over 650 thousand coronavirus tests performed in Kentucky. The positivity rate currently stands at 5.24%.

Unfortunately, Gov. Beshear reported seven new deaths Tuesday, raising the total to 751 Kentuckians lost to the virus.

First Lady Launches Coverings for Kids Program
First Lady Britainy Beshear on Tuesday launched a new program, Coverings for Kids, that will help Kentuckians to donate facial coverings directly to school districts.

Starting on Tuesday, Aug. 11, people can drop off purchased or homemade facial coverings at district-level donation centers. The individual school districts will designate drop-off locations, which will be announced soon.

The Office of the First Lady and Office of the Lieutenant Governor, through the Kentucky Department of Education, will provide each district with the donated facial coverings along with information to promote their use.

More information, including links to tutorials and patterns to make both child- and adult-size facial coverings, can be found on the Coverings for Kids web page at: https://governor.ky.gov/coveringsforkids

Expanded COVID-19 Testing
Gov. Beshear continues to encourage all Kentuckians to take advantage of coronavirus testing being offered at more than 200 locations across the commonwealth.
