(Frankfort, KY) - Governor Andy Beshear is lifting a mask mandate outdoors for groups of fewer than a thousand.
Beshear announced the policy change Monday which goes into effect Tuesday, citing an increased number of Kentuckians who are vaccinated for COVID-19.
The governor says those who are at such events and aren't vaccinated should still wear a mask if they can't practice social distancing. Masks are still required indoors.
