FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — Gov. Andy Beshear postponed an event scheduled for Tuesday afternoon after he and First Lady Britainy Beshear "began not feeling well" earlier that morning, according to a release issued by the governor's office.

"Out of an abundance of caution, we are postponing today’s 1 p.m. news conference," the statement said.

The postponed event was a virtual ribbon-cutting ceremony at 1 p.m. for the completion of three projects in Perry, Floyd, and Clay counties, funded with $14.05 million in Abandoned Mine Lands Pilot Program grants.

The release did not specify what symptoms the governor and first lady are experiencing or if they have been tested for COVID-19.
