Governor Beshear announced 35 new cases of coronavirus around the Commonwealth, bringing the total to 198 positive cases in the state.
Today’s update also came with the news of another death, a 75-year-old man in Jefferson County. It is Kentucky’s fifth coronavirus-related death, and the governor encouraged all who can to light their homes in green as a sign of solidarity and remembrance for those who have died.
In a little bit lighter news, we also learned that one of the new coronavirus patients recently traveled to Florida and back on spring break. Beshear reminded Kentuckians, “We are in the middle of a worldwide health pandemic. No, you cannot go on spring break.”
