Kentucky Eases Up Restrictions on Some Businesses

 Kentucky restrictions on businesses

On Monday, December 14, Gov. Andy Beshear announced that the state is now easing businesses’ restrictions, including bars, gyms, and restaurants. Beshear compared COVID-19 to a fast-moving train. There is no way to turn it around immediately. The process has to be slow. Kentucky’s Restrictions in fighting against the pandemic’s spread have been slow. These Kentucky restrictions have caused the local government to make changes to some businesses to allow reopenings. There will be distancing guidelines and mask mandates to ensure public safety. 


Reopenings at 50% capacity

Bars and restaurants can start opening their doors at 50% capacity and continue their delivery, pick-up, and outdoor dining services. However, the benefits must stop by 11 PM, and stores must close down by midnight. Gyms, fitness centers, pools, and other indoor recreation facilities are also allowed to open at 50% capacity


For school-related orders, Beshear said that previous instructions remain. Middle and high school students are expected to continue online learning till January 2021. In contrast to this, elementary schools are already allowed to operate by December 7, 2020.

Additionally, Kentucky’s state has continued with the downward trend and is now at a 9.13% positivity rate. If this spreading rate continues to decline up to 5% for two consecutive weeks, the virus is to be considered under control. 


Kentucky Restrictions Neccesitate business insurance 

Companies without the right insurance protection in a place shut their doors indefinitely. Other businesses even closed their operation for good. They didn’t have a safety net to keep them afloat for the worst of times. 

However, businesses with proper coverage could get by despite the Kentucky Restrictions.  These protected businesses not only their business but also their people. Restaurants, bars, and taverns were most affected, as these businesses require customer interaction. Even with the excellent coverage, companies weren’t equipped to cope with the restrictions.
