Governor reports 344 new COVID cases, 7 deaths, 2.89% positivity; get vaccine now — racing variants

Gov. Andy Beshear announced 344 new COVID-19 cases, 7 deaths, and a 2.89% positivity rate on Monday.

“If you haven’t gotten your COVID-19 vaccine yet, look at our list of where you can get your shot of hope this week, at vaccinemap.ky.gov,” said Gov. Beshear. “If you’ve already been vaccinated, reach out to one friend or family member who is still trying to get signed up and see if you can help them. This is an all-hands-on-deck effort. We are in a race against harmful COVID-19 variants that could threaten the progress we’ve all sacrificed so much to achieve.”
