Kentucky is easing the curfew for bars and restaurants by an hour starting Friday, Gov. Andy Beshear said.
These establishments will be able to serve until midnight and close at 1 a.m. local time, he said during a news conference.
Beshear said the capacity for bars and restaurants will remain at 60%.
Some context: The announcement comes as Kentucky reported its lowest Covid-19 positivity rate, 3.23%, since July 3, according to the governor.
"Hopefully, this is a little bit of relief given the positive movement of where we are right now as a state with vaccines going up and cases going down," Beshear said.
