186 Cases of COVID-19 in Northern Kentucky; 14 COVID-19 Related Deaths
"We’re having to take a new action, which I hoped that we wouldn't," said Beshear. "Any individual that’s going to participate in a mass gathering of any type that we know about this weekend, we are going to record license plates, provide it to local health departments and the local health departments are going to come to your door with an order that you need to be quarantined for 14 days. If you make that decision to expose yourself to this virus, it’s not fair to everyone else out there that you might expose it to."
"This is an example of personal responsibility," he said.
Beshear later clarified that his order does not apply to drive-in services and that it applies to all mass gatherings they hear about.

“Just because we have to be apart physically during this holiday weekend doesn’t mean that we can’t remain connected to our family and friends."
