He said it’s the first time the state has had five weeks of declining cases since the initial case of COVID-19 was confirmed in Kentucky last March. The state reported 723 new cases Monday, the lowest since Oct. 12. It had 9 deaths and a positivity rate of 6.57%. Meanwhile, Beshear said childcare workers have been moved up in priority for the coronavirus vaccine and can go ahead and sign up for it.
