Gov. Beshear Provides Update on COVID-19
By Crystal Staley/Sebastian Kitchen
Frankfort, KY - On Wednesday, Gov. Andy Beshear announced the state's positivity rate has declined to 3.73%.
"While our new cases have decreased dramatically since their peak in the commonwealth, these numbers are still too high," said Gov. Beshear. "We are close to the finish line but we can't let up yet. Keep masking up, keep social distancing and get vaccinated when it's your turn. Let's see this through to the end of the fight."
As of 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 17, Gov. Beshear reported the following COVID-19 numbers:
Kentucky's COVID-19 Vaccine Website, vaccine.ky.gov, shows Kentuckians which phase they are in specifically. Individuals can sign up for notifications so state officials can communicate with them when doses become available at new and existing sites. Kentucky's vaccine map lists regional vaccination partners statewide, so individuals can search their county or region and see how to schedule an appointment. Below the vaccine map, Kentuckians can find additional vaccination sites at Kroger, Walmart and Walgreens stores, as well as independent pharmacies.
Kentucky's COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline, 855-598-2246 or TTY 855-326-4654 (for deaf or hard-of-hearing Kentuckians), has the same features as the website. Kentuckians can get assistance completing the vaccine eligibility questionnaire and scheduling an appointment when doses are available. The hotline is available 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. EST Monday through Friday.
Free or reduced-cost transportation to and from vaccine appointments is offered by public transit agencies across the commonwealth. These services are already operating in over 90 counties, covering 75% of all counties across Kentucky. Kentuckians can find transportation services near them by heading to kycovid19.ky.gov for a full list of participating public transit agencies and their phone numbers, or by calling the Kentucky COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline.
