On August 10, 2020, Governor Andy Beshear extended the mask order for another 30 days. He also announced a new order and revised specific requirements (Version 5.1) effective August 11, 2020 for Kentucky bars and restaurants. Bars were allowed to reopen with 50% capacity and restaurants were allowed to increase their capacity from 25% back to 50%. However, both bars and restaurants are subject to the following changes:
- Both bars and restaurants are subject to an “enforced seat rule” that requires patrons to remain in their seats, except when entering, leaving or using the restroom.
- Both bars and restaurants must cut off service of food and drinks at 10 pm and close by 11 pm, except for drive-thru, carry-out and delivery services. This gives patrons an hour to consume what they were served before heading home.
