    Andy BeeFear is a sorry pathetic fool. Go hide under your bed you sissy. Andy couldn’t hold Daniel Cameron’s jock strap…..and yeah, that was a very cool comment “back in the day”. Nonetheless, Andy is THE weakest politician I have ever seen…..except for his daddy.

      It’s actually a statewide order, not just for scott county.

      Only if that business is registered as agritourism.

    When this is all said and done, we are gonna come to realize that by making everyone wear mask for a year, we wont be immune to anything else that our bodies normally are exposed too. We are all gonna be sick as shit and it wont be corona, it will be the common flu and cold and strep and…etc etc

    Why the [email protected]&k do we ignore everything we learned in biology class?!?

      Don’t engage in debate, UKwildcat, just shut it down, right? Is that how it works? Typical fascist response to an idea you don’t like.

    Does the court order apply to the state or only scott county ?

      According to WKYT, it’s statewide but it only pertains to businesses registered as agritourism with the KDA.

      It says “ALSO stops the enforcement of the Governor’s executive orders as they apply to Kentucky’s 548 agritourism businesses”

      I read that as meaning it applies to all businesses.

      And yes, it is statewide. I missed that the first time.

    That court order will more than likely be overturned before the end of next week. Pretty much all court orders coming from these small counties have been overturned.

    And honestly, it’s just a mask. I’d hate to see some of you in a war time environment when we mask up constantly. Be happy it’s just a thin mask and not a full chem suit.

      It was just a yellow star. Plenty wore it. Didn’t seem like such a big deal at first.

    This is fascism and it is time for the war to start. Democrats are evil and are destroying the United States hoping to defeat Trump.

    I will never wear a mask.

      Good for you. I have COVID-19, if you had it, maybe you would not be such a dick.

      100% If elections were last year or next year, we wouldn’t be dealing with all this nonsense. Not saying covid isn’t real, but its being used against Trump.

      If everyone wears a Trump 2020 mask then that’ll put a stop to it quick!

    I’m not sure why so many are so foolish. If you cough and are wearing a mask your droplets will carry a much shorter distance than 6 feet. It’s not biology and it doesn’t matter how small the coronavirus droplets are. Of course the piece of fabric isn’t going to contain every droplet but if it makes your spit from talking, sneezing or coughing travel 12 inches instead of 6 feet and it catches half of the coronavirus droplets you are greatly reducing the chances of you spreading the virus. Stop being selfish and stop making this political. It’s the right decision!

    UKCatAttack, touching, coughing around each other all promote herd immunity. CDC death rate in this country is 0.26 and KY is less. Andy is just a spokesperson for Big Pharma, like Fauci and Gates, his attempts at being a leader are such a sham. Can’t wait to vote GOP against him and watch him leave Frankfort with his tail between his legs.

    Trumpluddites:
    I agree with you. Never wear a mask. Be sure you never wear a mask around those who think as you do.

    There are already 138,000 less Trumpers than there were in February. By the time the election rolls around, you will be too sick or dead to cast a vote, and those you have infected, will further spread the gap to an all democratic sweep of every seat in the government.

    I want to meet the idiot that compared Tennessee’s infection and death rate early on in this Covid crisis that used their numbers on the infections vs. Death ratios vs. Kentucky’s.

    Their lack of control and planning has now made them one of the worst for infections, and their Death rate is much higher than ours. (300%).

    Trump supporters, hat and racism is your foundation. Stupidity is your touchstone.

    Please do not wear a mask, Darwin always wins.
