Keck wants to see Kentucky be a leader in workplace re-entry

One might say Somerset Mayor Alan Keck was ahead of the curve. Last Thursday, Keck took to Facebook Live to discuss his vision for reopening businesses in the time of the coronavirus.

By that evening, President Donald Trump had presented the federal plan and policies for doing just that, and on Friday, Governor Andy Beshear presented the plan he wanted in place to be able to do the same.

Many of those federal and state requirements overlap. The hope is to provide more testing capabilities and more personal protective equipment for healthcare workers who are on the front lines in the battle against the virus.

Governor Beshear also wants to see 14 consecutive days of decline in the number of new COVID-19 cases, and plans in place to prepare for a possible spike in the number of cases after the first wave of eased restrictions, as well as proven protection for at-risk citizens
