LEXINGTON, Ky. (WDKY) – Following the CDC’s updated guidance on masks, Governor Andy Beshear says the state of Kentucky will immediately follow that guidance.

The CDC eased indoor mask-wearing for fully vaccinated people, allowing them to stop wearing masks in most all situations. The exception is crowded indoor settings like buses, planes, hospitals, prisons and homeless shelters, even if fully vaccinated.

“Folks, this is outstanding,” Gov. Beshear said. “It means that we are so close to normalcy and we’re going to change Kentucky’s mask mandate to be the same with those CDC guidelines.”
