(Frankfort, Ky.) – Kentuckians can now extra time out on the town in their favorite bars and restaurants due to new guidance.

On Tuesday, Gov. Beshear along with state officials announced that they have slightly eased regulations on bars and restaurants by pushing back last call and operational hours at bars and restaurants.

The new guidance allows the last call to be at 11:00 p.m. with closure happening at midnight.

“That was a specific request from those in the restaurant industry. We thought it was reasonable,” the Governor said. “But again, let’s make sure that whether you’re in that industry or another industry, with rules and regulations that you are trying to do it right and are not trying to find a way to get around it. That not only hurts you and your facility and the people that come to it, but it hurts everybody around as well.”

Even with this easement, Gov. Beshear is still stressing the continued importance of masks, calling them “the single most important thing all of us can do to fight COVID-19.”
