Gov. Andy Beshear said he will relax some of the state’s pandemic-related capacity restrictions in three weeks.
Starting May 28, which marks the beginning of Memorial Day weekend, the state will increase capacity at all indoor and outdoor venues and businesses with under 1,000 people to 75%. The current limit is 60%. The increase will cover retail, hair salons, restaurants, movie theaters, gyms, weddings and memorial services.
Beshear said events with more than 1,000 people in attendance will be able to operate at 60% capacity starting May 28, up from 50%.
“It gives us the time to make sure we get through these last weeks of school, yet also gives notice to those that’ll be hosting folks,” Beshear said.
