FRANKFORT, Ky. (FOX19) - Kentucky now has a total of 439 coronavirus cases after Governor Andy Beshear announced 45 more cases on Sunday.

Northern Kentucky Health reports three more coronavirus cases in NKY, which brings the total to 29 across four counties in the area:

  • Campbell County - One new case (5 total)
  • Boone County - No new cases (5 total)
  • Grant County - No new cases (1 total)

While the 45 new confirmed cases are not the perfect scenario, the governor said Sunday was still a “fairly good day in Kentucky.”

Gov. Beshear’s comment on Sunday comes after Kentucky’s largest single-day increase of coronavirus cases on Saturday.

During his Sunday news conference, the governor emphasized the fact that people need to be engaging in social distancing.

Whether people are on the golf course, out for a run or walk, or shopping at a home improvement store, Gov. Beshear said people and businesses need to enforce social distancing.

He said he has received reports of home improvement stores and golf courses not enforcing social distancing and these places will be dealt with.

Possibly, forcing them to close their doors and courses he stated.

The governor said for people out running or walking they need to do so by themselves or with their families, not with a group of friends.
