FRANKFORT, Ky. (FOX19) - Kentucky’s curfew for bars and restaurants ends May 28.

Previously, bars and restaurants were able to serve until midnight and must close by 1 a.m.

“I want everyone to remember that we have been, and we are going to continue, to loosen these restrictions. But be reasonable,” Gov. Andy Beshear said speaking to bar and restaurant owners statewide. “Just because you can doesn’t mean you should. Look at your own facilities. Look at your ventilation. Look at your incident rate and vaccination rate in your counties, and make good decisions.”

Also on May 28, capacity limits on most businesses and indoor and outdoor events in Kentucky will increase to 75 percent.

The increase affects indoor and outdoor events with total capacity of 1,000 people or fewer. It also affects businesses including retailers, bars and restaurants, fitness centers, hair salons, movie theaters and event venues with total capacities of 1,000 people or fewer.

Larger events with maximum capacities of 1,000 or more may increase to 60 percent capacity.

Ohio’s curfew was lifted in February.
