FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — Gov. Andy Beshear announced during his Monday press conferences that there are 90 new cases of COVID-19 in Kentucky and that the state's coronavirus case total is now at 13,839.

Gov. Beshear also announced that there are no new coronavirus-related deaths to report.

"At least in the last two months, I only remember two of these days," Gov. Beshear said of reporting no new deaths. "For somebody who has read genders, ages and counties, knowing that each one of them is a loss of now 526 Kentuckians, to have no reportable deaths today is special."

Gov. Beshear also reminded Kentuckians that on June 29, which is exactly one week from Monday, just about every business in Kentucky will be open in some capacity. Those businesses getting include swimming pools and bars.

"One week from today, bars, venues including wedding venues, even Kentucky Kingdom, will be open at some capacity," Gov. Beshear said.

Gov. Beshear added that on Wednesday, there will be an outline of a plan for schools to safely reopen.
