State Fair Update
本日、州知事は公衆疫学官との諮問を通して、COVID-19 感染者増加を防ぐためにフェアは参加者だけに制限するのは必要なステップだとthe Kentucky State Fair Boardが決定しました。

フェアでは、広い通路や密集をさけ、手指衛生へのアクセスを上げ、マスクの着用をお願いすることになります。ソーシャルディスタンスを保つために、Lot A展示、Midway, コンサート、エンターテインメントや屋台などは今年のフェアでは行われないでしょう。

The Kentucky State Fairは8月20日から30日の間、ルイビルのthe Kentucky Expo Centerにて行われます。

The World’s Championship Horse Showは観客なしでthe U.S. Equestrian Federation COVID-19ガイドラインに即して行われる予定です。

Gov. Andy Beshear on Thursday extended the state’s mandate requiring face coverings in some situations for another 30 days, citing its success and continued importance in flattening the curve of COVID-19 cases in the commonwealth.

The Governor also noted that on Monday, he will have additional guidance for Kentucky’s bars and restaurants.

Case Information
As of 4 p.m. Aug. 6, Gov. Beshear said there were at least 33,254 coronavirus cases in Kentucky, 516 of which were newly reported Thursday. Twelve of the newly reported cases were from children ages 5 and younger.

As of Thursday, there have been at least 674,490 coronavirus tests performed in Kentucky. The positivity rate currently stands at 5.51%, unchanged from yesterday. 

Unfortunately, Gov. Beshear reported eight new deaths Thursday, raising the total to 760 Kentuckians lost to the virus.

Department of Corrections Update
To date, system-wide, there have been 844 positive cases with inmates and 136 with employees. Unfortunately, 10 Department of Corrections inmates have died from complications due to the coronavirus.

State Fair Update
Today, the Governor announced that through consultation with public health officials, the Kentucky State Fair Board determined that limiting the fair to participants only was a necessary step to prevent a surge in COVID-19 cases.

The fair will feature wider aisle ways, reduced occupancy, increased hygiene accessibility and facial covering requirements. In an effort to manage crowds and social distancing, Lot A exhibits, Midway, concerts, entertainment and food vendors will not be featured in this year’s fair.

The Kentucky State Fair will be held Aug. 20-30 at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville.

The World’s Championship Horse Show will be held without spectators and adhere to the U.S. Equestrian Federation COVID-19 guidelines.
