FRANKFORT, Ky. (WBKO) - On Wednesday, Gov. Andy Beshear announced 1,028 new cases of COVID-19, though 300 were from Monday and Tuesday, and could not be confirmed until Wednesday due to a technical issue on the reporting platform.

“Today’s case report reminds us that even though we’ve come so far in the fight against COVID-19, this isn’t over yet,” said Gov. Beshear. “Please, if you’re 16 or older, get vaccinated. Keep masking up in public spaces even if you have been vaccinated. None of us want to throw away our progress.”

The governor reported 10 new deaths and four deaths from audit. To see a list of those reported lost to the virus Wednesday, click here.
