Gov. Andy Beshear and other members of his family are quarantining after coming in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, he announced Sunday afternoon in a video.
No members of the governor’s family have tested positive for the coronavirus, he said in a taped statement alongside his son Will, and they feel “great,” the governor said.
Still, Beshear said, “we want to make sure we’re setting the example and that we’re also keeping other people around us safe that we’re walking the walk, not just talking the talk.”
