Governor Beshear Issues Travel Advisory, Restricts In-Person Gatherings

A day after the state of Kentucky recorded its highest single-day total of new coronavirus cases, Governor Andy Beshear unveiled a new round of restrictions.

Kentuckians will no longer be permitted to meet with up to 49 of their closest friends. “We’re seeing too much spread from 50 people getting together in someone’s backyard,” Beshear said.

Gatherings of more than 10 people are no longer allowed. This change in restrictions does not apply to places of business (i.e. restaurants, wedding venues, churches) that are regulated and have their own specific set of guidelines.

Governor Beshear also issued a travel advisory to states where the coronavirus positivity-rate is higher than 15 percent. The state recommends individuals that travel to states like Florida and Alabama self-quarantine for 14 days. If this policy were in place weeks ago, the recent outbreak in the Hazard High School weight room may have been prevented.

As you may ave noticed, most of those states are in the Southeastern Conference. The Kentucky football team is scheduled to travel to Florida and Alabama this fall and host Mississippi State, Georgia and South Carolina. Of course, rules and regulations change rapidly during the COVID-19 pandemic, but this new travel advisory is just one more thing SEC officials must consider as they make preparations for a 2020 college football season.

    Okay daddy Andy!! Tired of this clown trying to restrict every move we make. This is America, we have the right to not wear a mask or gather with more than 10 people if we choose. There’s no law that says we can’t. Thanks

      Let me translate 8XChamps post:

      I have a right to be stupid and try and spread this pandemic to as many people as possible. If people have to die so that I won’t be inconvenienced, so be it.

      All lives matter!!! As long as protecting those lives doesn’t involve me doing anything I’d rather not do.

      Mr.Incognito, if you believe all lives matter, what about all those unborn babies that die every year. Maybe you should be more concerned about that instead of a virus that has a 99% survival rate ????

      If “this mask thing” is a hoax, why do surgeons wear them?
      The only people being politically manipulated are those who feel that wearing a mask is somehow political.

      There’s a very good chance wearing a mask will be detrimental to my health, so wearing a mask (which there is zero science behind) for your benefit is not an option for me and that IS my right.

    For those that are complaining about wearing a mask and Beshear restricting hanging out in huge crowds, please move to Florida. The governor there is liberal about that and doesn’t mind COVID flowing there. Don’t dumb down this country.

    Since you mask wearers are so concerned about people not wearing mask, i gotta ask, why the [email protected]@k does it matter if others choose not to wear their mask? If you are wearing yours then you should be protected right? Then stfu and mind your own damn business.

    The numbers are not accurate whatsoever and the death rate is so low that more people actually die from the regular flu daily, than covid19

      No. Hal….. More people have died from coronavirus in the US since February than from the flu since October.

      In other words, coronavirus isn’t just killing more people than the flu. It’s also killing at a much faster rate.

      From October 1 to April 4, an estimated 24,000 to 62,000 Americans died from the flu, according to CDC.

      The first known US death from coronavirus was in February. By July 17, more than 138,000 people have died, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

    If you look at the numbers less people die of covid under 70 than the flu. However more people die of covid over 70 but primarily over 75.

    I don’t think I would be throwing around words like “permitted, “allowed” or “restrictions.” Andy himself admitted that these were “advised” and “recommended” after he was bitchslapped by Daniel Cameron and the US Constitution before with his travel “bans” and “restrictions.” Before you snowflakes start clawing your eyes out and bawling over my statements I will say that I really don’t mind the mask “mandate,” even though I hesitate to use that term due to the legal and constitutional aspects which say it is baseless. A mask is a VERY minor inconvenience at best but, more than that, is also yet another opportunity for me to express my RIGHT to free speech by wearing masks with US and/or confederate flags (if I do chose, which I do not) or pro-Trump messages.

    Where is the proof that the number of cases is related to gatherings in back yards versus shopping at Wal-Mart? What if the increase in cases is due to more people wearing more masks incorrectly, which has been proven to increase the possibility of exposure? What if we are doing the exact opposite of what we should be doing? Hmmmm…

    • lexattorney
      10:22 pm July 20, 2020 Permalink

      The most hilarious part is the snowflakes’ refusal to admit that the increase COULD HAVE come from the riots and “protests” that took place just weeks ago. They LOVE blaming it on people going out to eat, shop and ESPECIALLY go to church (particularly us Christians) but their own ignorance has nothing to do with it!

    • Jambluehue99

      Riots and “protests” were declared COVID free zones. It works about as well as gun free zones, but liberals can’t bring themselves to admit their flawed logic.

    I think everyone agrees there is Covid19 among us. What IS a hoax and has been since the beginning, is the count of cases and recorded deaths. The motorcycle death in FL last week is a classic example. A 24 year old man died from a cycle accident, but they recorded if as Covid because he had tested positive earlier. They changed cause of death AFTER someone discovered it and complained. There’s been reporting of 100% and 98% positive testing cases that the media went nuts over but were found to be actually around 7.8% and 4.5% when someone challenged the numbers and they were corrected. In NY state in the early days if was discovered that EVERY death other than homicide, suicide or highway deaths were recorded as covid. I could go on and on but the point is, that the numbers have been manipulated from the get go. In addition, you’d have to be completely ignorant to not realize CASES are going to go UP if you’re testing MORE people. I just shake my head when I hear people go crazy over the increase in cases and they cannot comprehend that it’s inevitable. What does that exactly mean? Does that mean they’ll all be hospitalized? There is no concrete evidence for it. Does it mean a higher percentage will die? NO. Today KY had ONE death. How many people died from something else? We’ll never see that. Covid19 a hoax? Nope. But the numbers game is definitely a hoax, and that’s exactly why people are skeptical of the entire process.
    If I choose to have a get together in my ‘private’ residence and we social distance, why should I not be allowed to do so? I’ll wait for someone to call the Nazi hotline and turn us in. The people following these ‘decisions’ from our government are simply sheep. You cannot possibly believe that giving ANY government this kind of unchallenged control is going to stop with this issue. You’re getting what you voted for today.

    It is also very troubling that the numbers announced STILL include both the people who have recovered or died (which, like you said, is questionable at best) rather than simply saying, “There are X number of ACTIVE cases today.” It is extremely misleading to give these unadjusted daily numbers and essentially promotes fear and confusion. As for the “limit” on social gatherings, you don’t actually have to worry about what you do at your private residence. Even Andy admitted today that these are “advised” and not enforceable in any way. That bitchslapping he got from Daniel Cameron and the KY SC the last time he tried “mandating” something still stings, I guess LOL

    Medical personnel use surgical mask. Not a handkerchief you wear below your nose. Good to be safe but, be real in the fact that it is no more than a fashion statement. How could the Mayor of Atlanta, ABC Whitehouse Reporter, and others that complain about the President not wearing his GET COVID???? Were they not wearing theirs?
