The novel coronavirus and the disease it causes, COVID-19, have already had an enormous impact on daily life in Kentucky and the world, prompting governments at all levels to respond.
Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear has been holding a daily press conference at 5 p.m. eastern to update the public on the commonwealth's response to the pandemic.
Notable measures announced have included the closure of restaurants and bars to in-person traffic, the closure of gyms and daycare centers, and the recommendation that schools across the state remain closed until at least late April.
