Gov Beshear And His Family Self-Quarantine After Guard Tests Positive For COVID

Kentucky's governor says he will quarantine after a member of his security detail tested positive for COVID-19. Beshear says the state police trooper drove with his family on Saturday and later tested positive for the coronavirus.

The Governor says he and his family feel fine and show no symptoms. In a social media video Sunday, Beshear said he’s committed to setting an example by quarantining after receiving a call from a contact tracer. His office says Beshear’s family will be tested regularly for the virus and will remain in quarantine until cleared by the state public health department.
