FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — Following a press conference Tuesday, Governor Andy Beshear updated COVID-19 totals. The state is now up to 27 confirmed cases.

The two newest cases involve a 74-year-old man in Jefferson County and a 69-year-old man in Lyon County.

Beshear noted that one of the cases that had previously been listed in Kentucky is actually a New York case with two addresses, meaning Kentucky has an official total of 26 cases.

Of the 27 cases listed, one person passed away earlier this week in Bourbon County.

Beshear also announced that all 16 Kentucky passengers that were aboard the Grand Princess cruise ship are now back in shape. All 16 are coronavirus-free.
