Gov. Andy Beshear has issued an executive order waiving coronavirus testing fees for state employees and those with private health insurance.
The order follows a Monday morning press conference where the Beshear Administration confirmed the virus is spreading from person to person in Kentucky. Beshear said the executive order, effective immediately, impacts more than 460,000 privately insured residents and state employees.
“There is nothing more important than the health and safety of our fellow Kentuckians, which is why we have been working together for weeks to prepare for this virus and why we’re in constant contact now to ensure local and state officials are responding promptly and appropriately,” Beshear said.
