COVID: State Repots Over 1,000 New Cases; 17 Active In County

FRANKFORT, Ky (AP) — Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear reported 1,028 confirmed coronavirus cases and 10 virus-related deaths Wednesday. Three hundred cases are from Monday and Tuesday, but could not be confirmed and announced until Wednesday due to a technical issue. “Today’s case report reminds us that even though we’ve come so far in the fight against COVID-19, this isn’t over yet,” Beshear said. He urged Kentucky residents to continue to observe social distancing guidelines even if they are fully vaccinated. “None of us want to throw away our progress,” he added. (There were 17 active cases in Breckinridge County as of Wednesday.)
