LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Did you get the city’s recent COVID-19 emergency alert?
Sunday’s weather may be perfect for getting outside but officials are reminding people to stay inside as they continue to stress the importance of social distancing to flatten the curve of this virus.
"Staying home will save lives. No one is immune to COVID-19. Stay home; limit trips to the store for essentials; wash your hands frequently; stay 6ft from others; and avoid public gatherings. Stay connected with friends and family by phone or through social media," the alert read.
This comes after reports of people congregating in local parks and streets without keeping social distancing in mind.
“We cannot have hundreds of people coming together in Louisville which the mayor talked about happening last night. If hundreds of people come together, several people are going to die because of it. That is what we are facing," Governor Andy Beshear said on Saturday.
Fischer also spoke Saturday, saying some don’t understand the seriousness and gravity of the virus.
So far, Louisville has 140 cases of COVID-19 as of Sunday.
Reporting hotline | Gov. Beshear has a COVID-19 Reporting Hotline setup: (833-597-2337) that will investigate complaints about non-compliance with coronavirus mandates. Labor Cabinet personnel will monitor the hotline from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.Kentuckians can also file complaints online.
