All Kentucky state employees, including those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, are once again required to wear masks while working indoors, Gov. Andy Beshear announced Wednesday.

Additionally, anyone who visits a state building, regardless of their coronavirus vaccination status, must don a mask when inside. The shift in guidance is “to protect [employees] and those they interact with,” Beshear said in a brief video update.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Bill Londrigan has sent us a reminder that “tomorrow, Thursday afternoon, July 29th  is the cut off for registering.” Hence, he asks, “please register as soon as possible so we can submit the names of those attending for hotel accommodations.”
