FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT/WSAZ) - Dr. Deborah Birx, with the White House Coronavirus Task Force, spoke with reporters in Frankfort after meeting with Governor Andy Beshear and other health leaders in Kentucky about COVID-19 conditions in the state.
Dr. Birx spoke on the importance of wearing masks and strictly observing social distancing protocols in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. She says Kentucky’s positivity rate puts the state at a good place to flatten the curve before school starts, but says it will require the majority of the population to comply with health guidelines.
