Beshear: When 2.5M Kentuckians Get Vaccinated, Restrictions Will Be Lifted

According to Beshear, just over 900,000 more Kentuckians need their vaccines in order to meet the Team Kentucky Vaccination Challenge.

(Louisville, Ky.) – Kentuckians are being challenged by Governor Andy Beshear to be vaccinated.

With this challenge comes multiple rewards.

These rewards include removing capacity restrictions and physical distancing requirements for nearly all venues, events, and businesses that cater to 1,000 or fewer patrons.

Governor Beshear stated that he would lift COVID-19 restrictions when 2.5 million Kentuckians have received at least their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

This also includes lifting the curfew for restaurants and bars when the goal is met.

According to Beshear, just over 900,000 more Kentuckians need their vaccines in order to meet the Team Kentucky Vaccination Challenge.

 

“This is a pivotal moment in our battle against COVID-19, and with this site, where we can vaccinate 4,000 Kentuckians every single day, we are winning the war and taking the fight to COVID,” said Gov. Beshear. “Thanks to UofL Health for being a partner as we vaccinate more and more Kentuckians, save lives, and end this pandemic.”

While Louisville might be a little out of the way for individuals from the Greater Cincinnati area, there are plenty of vaccination sites in Boone, Carroll, and Kenton counties.
