(CNN)Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron has joined a federal lawsuit against an executive order issued by Gov. Andy Beshear to close schools to limit the spread of Covid-19.

Beshear, a Democrat, issued an executive order earlier this week halting in-person learning at K-12 public and private schools across the state beginning Monday, among other restrictions.

But on Friday, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced he would join a private Christian school, Danville Christian Academy, in a lawsuit against Beshear, arguing the governor's order is unconstitutional because it would prevent religious organizations from providing private education.

Danville Christian Academy -- a school of 234 students, per the lawsuit -- has spent between $20,000 and $30,000 implementing "rigorous protocols" to safely provide in-person instruction, Cameron's statement says.

The lawsuit also takes issue with the allowances made for other facilities like restaurants and office spaces in Beshear's other order while closing schools.
