LRC: New guidance on citizens attending legislative meetings

By Mike Wynn, LRC

Frankfort, KY - Kentuckians may continue to attend legislative committee meetings in person and vaccinated guests are not required to wear a mask in committee rooms, according to the latest guidance from the Legislative Research Commission (LRC).

Visitors attending legislative committee meetings should enter the Capitol Annex through the visitor's entrance, located at the center doors on the front of the building.

Fully vaccinated guests are not required to wear a mask in committee rooms or other areas controlled by the LRC. However, they may still wear a mask at their discretion. Unvaccinated guests should wear a mask at all times. All guests should be prepared to wear a mask in areas controlled by the state executive branch.

The LRC will continue to spread out audience seats in committee rooms for social distancing purposes. If a meeting is expected to attract significant interest, an overflow room will be available so that anyone who cannot find a seat in the primary meeting room may still view the meeting in real time.

To view the weekly calendar of committee meetings, go online to

All committee meetings are livestreamed so that people who cannot attend meetings may view them online. For more information, go to

The first floor and basement of the Capitol Annex are open to visitors, but citizens must have a scheduled appointment to access the second, third and fourth floors of the Annex where lawmakers' offices are located. Individual legislators may require guests to wear a mask in their personal office, so please ask about that policy as part of the scheduling process.
