Gov. Beshear: Virus Continues to Surge Across Commonwealth
By Crystal Staley/Sebastian Kitchen
Frankfort, KY - On Tuesday, Gov. Andy Beshear said Kentuckians should be alarmed by the surge of COVID-19 cases in the commonwealth and renew their commitment to stop the spread of this disease before the crisis escalates further.
"It continues to be a difficult time in the commonwealth, where every day, things appear to be getting worse and more concerning," said Gov. Beshear. "We are seeing not only a surge in the virus, but more and more of our kids by percentage who are getting it."
Families, schools, businesses and community leaders in counties listed in the red zone should follow nine recommendations to keep people safe. All Kentuckians should consider adopting some of these recommendations to help their county avoid the red zone. Today's COVID-19 case report is the highest ever for a Tuesday.
He encouraged all Kentuckians to vote safely and make their voices heard today.
"I think Kentuckians are really focused on what appears to be a record turnout. I believe this election will be one that is good for democracy and shows that Kentucky can be a model for the country," said Gov. Beshear.
As of 4 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 3, Gov. Beshear reported the following COVID-19 numbers:
