Beshear recommends schools wait until Sept. 28 for in-person class

More news out of Andy Beshear’s Monday afternoon update: the governor recommended September 28 as the start date for in-person classes throughout Kentucky. Beshear doesn’t have the power to postpone all school on his own, but he did make the suggestion to wait another seven weeks before opening classrooms to students. He cites case numbers as his reasoning behind changing his recommendation from the third week of August.

And in case you missed it, Beshear also increased restaurant and bar capacity, but added a 10 p.m. service curfew to keep things from going far into the night when one’s decision-making can get foggy.

Gov. Beshear increases bar, restaurant capacity to 50%, issues service curfew

 

Now here’s Willie Cauley-Stein dunking on Florida to take your mind off coronavirus things.

    Andy is the gift that keeps on giving. I’m thrilled he put that 10pm curfew in place. It’s been proven that the virus spreads so much faster after 10pm. Cutting edge decisions!

      It’s so hard having a governor that actually cares about its citizens and not the political outcome.

      You don’t think he cares about the political outcome? Then explain why he feels the need to come on tv every day and tell us the next 2 weeks are critical or we’re all in this together? Free re-election air time.

      44-that’s right. He doesn’t care about politics because he knows he doesn’t have a chance to get re-elected unless the GOP nominates Bevin again.

      44stewart, how many people have lost their businesses and jobs as a result of this? How many people have been affected by the increasing crime as a segment of the population sits idle? Finally, and this is to be determined, the mental health affects to many from the stress and anxiety that continued shutdown is creating. On the surface, it seems callous to suggest we have to accept some amount of death for the greater good of the community, but we do already do this every single day when we allow being to operate motor vehicles, own guns, and other activities.

      I agree. Also, Less than 1% of our state has HAD covid. Which means even less than that are positive right this second because of recoveries.

      You should thank your governor that COVID hasn’t been worse.

      Coming to the KSR comment section for a COVID article is like being a chiefs player in a room full of checkers players.

    I’m waiting to hear no fans for Oaks and Derby. I’m shocked it’s still a go.

    If playstations and x box made you learn to level up we wouldn’t need schools. Haha

    Hopefully private schools will move forward on schedule. Public school system continuing to damage itself

      100% agree with you. Hoping our school makes their own decision. Most of the people I see applauding this are the “Stepford Wives” that don’t have to work for a living.

    It’s a recommendation. My daughters go to a private school and their first day was today. I’m so worried that they will get the virus because they started school earlier. I’m shocked they made it through today honestly.

    Is this just primary and high school, or colleges and universities too?

    Now the question becomes, how does this impact high school football? The KHSAA decided to postpone football practices until Aug. 24 largely to avoid the questionable optics if they resumed sports activities before it was deemed safe for students to return to school. First games were slated for Sept. 11. Now if the Governor doesn’t think it’s safe for students to return to in-classroom instruction until Sept. 28, what will the KHSAA do?

      I was actually listening to Jody Demling discussing this on the radio, and he said Beshear was actually less concerned about sports vs schools because athletes are around each other for a relatively limited amount of time, vs 6+ hours a day with school.



    • peaches76

      Guess Andy ever rode an athletic bus to a game and home? 6+ hours on many occasions.



    • JoeMoney333

      While time is a variable the proximity and intimate nature of athletics make it much more likely to be spread there than spaced out in a classroom, no matter the time frame.

    Has the Governor stopped protesting after 10 or limited amount of people who can protest?

    NO

    Dandy Beshear. The schools could call it a peaceful protest and Dandy Beshear would be all aboard that train.

    This is what happens with liberals in charge of everything. We all know damn well that if this wasn’t an election year, most of this nonsense would be going on. Its being used as a political tool. The virus is real, but its no where near as bad as its being made out to be. Liberals in charge of teachers unions too. Ever notice how it was really rare to spread this to kids a month or so ago? Then all of a sudden Trump states that schools need to be opened? Then the kids infection numbers started to go up quickly. Anything Trump says, the left does the opposite of. Not saying virus isn’t real, but the lefties are using it as a political tool in hopes of getting Trump out of office. Nov 4th, most of this ignorant crap ends, along with the BLM terrorist stuff.

      Kentucky and Tennessee got their first COVID cases on the same day. Andy took it seriously, TN kept things more open. Today, KY has just over 35K cases, TN has nearly 124K cases. I haven’t lived in KY in decades, but I know as far as the rest of the South goes, KY is envied for having a decent governor. You may not like his politics, but he’s done a pretty good job with COVID. Maybe you’d rather have Florida-Man in charge?

      Cousins, I went to all the trouble logging in to say that you are 1000% correct. The virus is real, but you’re right, earlier, the line was young kids won’t get the virus, now, that’s the first stat you hear on the news. People better start thinking for themselves and realize what is and is not, complete BS.

    Let’s be honest, this is entirely because of Louisville and Jefferson County. It’s the only hot spot in Kentucky.

      Not true. There are hotspots all along the border with Tennessee.

      Look at the per capital map and the highest is down around Bowling Green and along the Tennessee border.
