Governor Beshear Issues New Order for Kentucky Bars and Restaurants and Extends Face Covering Order

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.
