Governor Beshear Issues New Restrictions at Targeted Areas to Curb A Third Wave of the Coronavirus
On November 18, 2020, Governor Beshear announced new restrictions aimed at controlling the spread of COVID-19 during a third wave of the disease with the potential for exponential growth due to the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday and the cooler weather that leads to spending more time indoors. Two new Executive Orders here (businesses/social gatherings) and here (schools) set forth the new restrictions and range from three to six weeks in duration, most taking effect at 5 pm on Friday, November 20. More information is available here. For activities not listed in these orders, business owners and organizations should follow the current guidance and related executive orders available at the Healthy at Work website.
