Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear said he's recommending that churches across the state cancel services this weekend.
"I know that that’s a big step, I know that some won’t agree with it. But I believe that it’s our job to offer those protections, that we have a lot of opportunity for virtual services," he said.
He noted he's canceling a weekend prayer breakfast.
"I don’t believe that whether you go to church during this period of time is a test of faith. I believe God gives us wisdom to protect each other and we should do that," he said.
