After more than a year and a half of restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic, most of Kentucky’s COVID-19 restrictions – including its mask mandate – will come to an end on Friday.

But the governor said he wanted to wait a few weeks to lift restrictions so children between 12 and 15 years old had time to get their COVID-19 vaccine. "After a long, dark pandemic, more of our people have gotten their shot of hope, and we have steadily moved to lift the last remaining restrictions put in place to slow the spread of this dangerous virus and save lives,” Beshear said.

For those not vaccinated: you still have time. ”Also on Friday, Kentucky’s senior centers will reopen at full capacity. The increasing number of vaccinations makes it safe to let Kentuckians gather once again at senior centers, the governor said at a news conference. “These things are miracles,” Beshear said of the vaccinations.
