Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

As of Thursday morning, the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Kentucky remains at eight. However, a Humana employee in Louisville has received a presumptive positive from a non-certified lab, Gov. Andy Beshear said during a 12:00 briefing. Regardless, the governor says the number of cases will rise and Kentuckians should anticipate ongoing disruption to their everyday lives for at least the next couple months.

Beshear says 16 Kentucky residents who were aboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship will return to the state. The National Guard will escort the residents. All of them have tested negative for COVID-19 and will remain under self-quarantine for 14 days following their return, Beshear said.
