(LEX 18) — Some bars will close for two weeks starting Tuesday under a new decision by Governor Andy Beshear's office.

Starting Tuesday, July 28, freestanding bars will close and restaurants will be limited to 25% capacity indoors. Outside seating can remain as long as social distancing measures are in place.

This will be in effect for two weeks, until August 11.

During the COVID-19 briefing, Gov. Beshear also recommended that schools across Kentucky should postpone in-person instruction until the third week in August.
