  • So, right now I signed an govt order that’s beginning tomorrow at 5PM, going to mandate that Kentuckians in public and in sure conditions MUST put on a facial overlaying, or masks. What this implies is that each one prospects in retail amenities, grocery shops, in most forward-facing companies, if you’re indoors and can’t get 6 ft from people, and out of doors for those who can’t be 6 ft away from one other particular person, you MUST put on a masks.

  • One exception you mentioned for sporting a masks is for a medical situation, how can they show it? — When you have a well being situation akin to bronchial asthma or others that stop you from sporting a masks then don’t put on it. If enforcement is there and asking you about it simply inform them about it. Everybody needs folks to do that, they need them to return on voluntarily, it’s not going to work until individuals are keen to do it. There aren’t sufficient folks on the market to implement it in every single place. So if in case you have a well being situation and somebody asks you why you aren’t sporting a masks, simply politely speak to them about it. Now if in case you have a well being situation that stops you from sporting a masks then you definitely want everybody else sporting a masks as a result of which means you’re extra inclined to the virus. I hope anybody who can’t do it’s pushing as many individuals round them to put on one as effectively.

  • What are the implications? — The implications of not sporting a masks are going to be within the order, it would begin with a warning, however in the end if there may be power refusal, it may possibly result in a superb. For companies that aren’t making an attempt to implement it, there are those that could attempt however not have the ability to get there, there might be vital penalties. I’ll inform youI know of people that went to a restaurant in Western KY simply this weekend, perhaps Three days in the past, and not one of the staff had been sporting a masks. Now that can end in that restaurant being shut down.

  • Financial Improvement Replace: First here’s a construction. We aren’t simply chasing jobs from the previous however constructing them up from inside. It’s time we helped each entrepreneur on the market identical to we talked about with agri-tech, to take the subsequent nice concepts, to just be sure you can get that IP, and to in the end scale it up. So, even in these tight instances we’re investing $2.6M in 6 regional entrepreneurship sources hubs throughout the state. This state-wide system will join entrepreneurs, innovators, and start-ups, with mentors, traders, college help, authorities and neighborhood sources to assist them achieve success.

  • UI: We have now greater than tripled our workforce. We went from 40 to about 100 state employers. Right now we now have 200 contractors which are actively processing claims. It’s taken a while to get everybody the instruments they want however now every particular person is doing a minimum of 15 calls per day as they’re ramping up. As of right now we consider 320 people are processing claims. This week Ashland served 1,316 folks. Owensboro served 886. Hopkinsville has served 1000 by means of right now and Summerset served 1,000 by means of right now as effectively. The information for subsequent week: we will be in Covington, M, T, W, Prestonsburg T, W, R, and Frankfort- M-F. You should enroll utilizing this portal. We have now 3x the variety of folks making calls however solely 50% of the time are folks choosing up. Please carry your cellphone with you and choose up.

  • Right here’s that state map. It’s in every single place. The darkish shade is in Easten Kentucky, Central Kentucky, Western Kentucky. It’s in every single place….look how rapidly a county can change colour So, let’s bear in mind it’s in every single place and it may possibly occur quick.

  • On holidays, to seashores. If you happen to’re going to a Florida seashore, the place they’re reporting virtually 10,000 circumstances a day, you’re most likely going to deliver it again with you and harm your neighborhood. I can inform you we now have report after report from throughout Kentucky of 15, 16 folks being contaminated as a result of somebody not too long ago went to the seashore. We simply gotta be extra cautious. Our actions are impacting extra folks than simply us. I perceive you need to get away, however perhaps to a spot to get away, that’s protected and may chill out that isn’t a sizzling spot for COVID-19

  • Let’s take a look at Arizona. They’re only one.5x larger than Kentucky. On Could the sixth they’d 402 circumstances, fairly near what we had yesterday. On June sixth they’d 1,119 circumstances. And on July sixth they’d 3,352. So we had 333 circumstances right now, they’re only one.5x larger they usually had 4K plus circumstances right now. That’s what occurs when this virus will get away from you. If you don’t take early motion whenever you see the numbers going up. And we are able to’t wait until we’re getting hundreds a day to take sure actions. Let’s take a look at AZ, TX, or others, what occurs after we get overwhelmed in our healthcare system.

  • Slides from Replace

  • [Audio cut out to start] – We proceed to see long-term investments which are going to propel our financial system for the subsequent 20 years. I feel it’s necessary that these instances the place we could lose hope or have nervousness, take into consideration these school graduates who don’t know what their first job might be or the folks that may not have the ability to return to their previous job.

  • We want a bit little bit of hope with what the longer term is gonna seem like and I feel it’s gonna look vivid. So we’re going to take a look at our financial improvement replace. We had a few bulletins this week which are vital.

  • First here’s a construction. We aren’t simply chasing jobs from the previous however constructing them up from inside. It’s time we helped each entrepreneur on the market identical to we talked about with agri-tech, to take the subsequent nice concepts, to just be sure you can get that IP, and to in the end scale it up. So, even in these tight instances we’re investing $2.6M in 6 regional entrepreneurship sources hubs throughout the state. This state-wide system will join entrepreneurs, innovators, and start-ups, with mentors, traders, college help, authorities and neighborhood sources to assist them achieve success. Nearly each rising enterprise in KY are ones that began in KY. The extra small companies we flip into medium dimension companies, and the medium to massive ones- the extra that helps our financial system develop. There isn’t any extra necessary time to make some of these investments than proper now. Perhaps a few of you on the market are prepared to begin that subsequent nice enterprise. Theses areas are going to assist us try this

  • We have now had some large bulletins this week on the financial improvement aspect. The primary is GE home equipment. I wanna thank GE Home equipment. They’re gonna add 260 new jobs, and broaden $62M funding in upgrades at GE Equipment Park in Louisville. I knew we went by means of a few years questioning if there was going to be a facility right here and if we’d have jobs within the long-term. Even within the midst of what we’re coping with the longer term is vivid. They’ll produce fridges, dishwashers, dryers, and washers. GE employs 6K folks in Kentucky’s largest metropolis, and we’re grateful to see it rising.

  • 30 folks full-time, $17.5M funding. There’s a brand new mill- Feralloy Corp. A brand new Metal processing facility at Nucor Metal Gallatin mill in Ghent, KY. Plans to rent extra folks in Gallatin County. We plan to open up this facility this October. And it’s a key version in Kentucky’s major metals business. The business staff practically 27,000 Kentuckians full-time at 230 amenities. I feel it’s necessary after we come collectively to replace the Commonwealth on all varieties of issues, and we take a look at successes, to let the world know that we’re open for enterprise and we glance to the subsequent 20 years particularly post-vaccine.

  • That’s one bit of fine information, right here’s one other:

  • The Consensus forecast group predicted a street fund shortfall of $161.8M. For the scale of the street fund, that’s vital, however right now, the precise shortfall precise is $100M *much less*. The precise shortfall is barely $59.9M. People, that’s actually excellent news. We had been capable of take cash from the CARES Act fund and minimize it down one other $42M to solely $8M. What does that imply? First it means counties. Counties had been going to lose some huge cash, as a result of it’s a shared pool. However that quantity is now a lot smaller. It went from $37M right down to $8M. That’s more cash for our county tasks. But it surely means we’re gonna have the ability to make use of extra folks. We’re going to have the ability to restart paving tasks that had been backlogged. And we began in July, with the primary letting (allowance of cash despatched off) that we had achieved in Three months. That’s actually thrilling information. Which means there might be extra street work on the market however that’s going to maintain them safer, and create extra financial alternatives. That is actually excellent news. We’re ready on the overall fund. I don’t wanna say I’m optimistic, issues are nonetheless actually tough, however extra {dollars} are coming in than anticipated, which implies we’re going to rebound quicker than anticipated, however provided that we do the issues that we’re gonna speak about right now.

  • Our subsequent replace is on Unemployment insurance coverage and providers being offered

  • We have now greater than tripled our workforce. We went from 40 to about 100 state employers. Right now we now have 200 contractors which are actively processing claims. It’s taken a while to get everybody the instruments they want however now every particular person is doing a minimum of 15 calls per day as they’re ramping up. As of right now we consider 320 people are processing claims. This week Ashland served 1,316 folks. Owensboro served 886. Hopkinsville has served 1000 by means of right now and Summerset served 1000 by means of right now as effectively. The information for subsequent week: we will be in Covington, M, T, W, Prestonsburg T, W, R, and Frankfort- M-F. You should enroll utilizing this portal. We have now 3x the variety of folks making calls however solely 50% of the time are folks choosing up. Please carry your cellphone with you and choose up. We have now extra assist now than ever earlier than. We need to get you helped by the tip of this month. We consider issues are going to enhance very in a short time

  • We’re rising our CARES act allotment to our native well being departments. They do every part from academic outreach to contact tracing to even popup testing websites they usually’ve by no means had as a lot work as they do now. So we’re asserting right now, one other $36.2M on prime of the primary set that we offered that might be going to these native well being departments. They’re making an attempt to maintain us protected. They’re the assistance on the bottom in our communities.

  • Turning to COVID-19:

  • People we’re nonetheless in a battle, and it’s not going away, regardless of being summer season, and doing the issues that we used to do, and we at the moment are seeing a daily improve in Kentucky. We aren’t seeing what we’re seeing in different states, however I can say for the final 5 days our numbers have not been bouncing up and down like they used to between 120-340-ish. They’re now on the excessive finish of that vary if not increased

  • Ventilators in use (25.9%): 506

  • Ventilators out there: 1,448

  • These are the nice numbers. We’re beginning to see much more circumstances in daycares. There’s been a daycare in Madison county with Three confirmed workers, thank goodness it was earlier than they had been opening. We’re additionally getting experiences of Louisville daycares with constructive checks. We’re getting experiences of HS packages having to close down a few of their Summer time work due to constructive checks. We have now to grasp that it’s hitting all components of our inhabitants. Whereas individuals are speaking about folks of their 20s and 30s, and they need to, 0-39 is nearly 40% of all of our circumstances. You may really feel that you simply’re indestructible for those who’re in that age group, however that implies that 60% rather less is within the different age group. It means dad and mom of younger kids are simply as prone to have it and we shouldn’t put all of the blame on an age group that we predict ought to take extra accountability. All of us gotta take extra accountability to verify this doesn’t proceed to unfold.

  • New deaths right now: 4

  • Whole Deaths: 612 They had been taken earlier than their time and we should always grieve with their households.

  • New deaths by county: 79 M Edmonson, 94 M Knox, 93 F Clark, 61 M Pike

It’s the colour of compassion and renewal as their souls transfer from their our bodies to a greater place.

  • Right here’s that state map. It’s in every single place. The darkish shade is in Japanese Kentucky, Central Kentucky, Western Kentucky. It’s in every single place….look how rapidly a county can change colour So, let’s bear in mind it’s in every single place and it may possibly occur quick.

  • On holidays, to seashores. If you happen to’re going to a Florida seashore, the place they’re reporting virtually 10,000 circumstances a day, you’re most likely going to deliver it again with you and harm your neighborhood. I can inform you we now have report after report from throughout Kentucky of 15, 16 folks being contaminated as a result of somebody not too long ago went to the seashore. We simply gotta be extra cautious. Our actions are impacting extra folks than simply us. I perceive you need to get away, however perhaps to a spot to get away, that’s protected and may chill out that isn’t a sizzling spot for COVID-19

  • Right now we’re gonna bear in mind Dana Davis, a entrance line healthcare labored at Baptist hospital in Louisville. She handed away at COVID-19 at simply 51-years-old. Whereas she was considered one of our heroic healthcare employees and a evaluation remains to be being performed on how she contracted the virus. She was a mom, grandmother, spouse, sister, daughters and a lot extra and she or he was taken from her household far far too quickly. She loved searching for antiques, serving to others, and loved spending time together with her grand-babies. She had a coronary heart of gold. Her daughter pleads, “Please put on your masks. Keep house and social distance to your family members and the entrance line employees, like Dana.”

  • Testing places for subsequent week. Testing is essential. If you happen to had been round crowds on the 4th of July, if you’re usually in touch with others, youngsters taking part in sports activities, it’s time to get them examined. Websites for subsequent week: Louisville, Lexington, and Independence. Let’s ensure we get people to enroll and use all the out there slots. Let’s ensure we benefit from these sources

  • Right now we now have to speak about the place we’re, and what’s taking place with this virus within the US. We’re seeing an explosion of COVID, the place we’re seeing document numbers on this nation on a regular basis. After it seemed prefer it was balancing out in the midst of Could/June, virtually day-after-day in July is setting a document tempo, which implies extra People than ever are getting COVID-19. Why shouldn’t you journey proper now? As a result of touring proper now means you’re on the very best quantity of Coronavirus on this nation that we now have seen but since we started (Kentucky) on March the sixth. That is trigger for actual concern and may wake folks as much as what we’re coping with. We will’t want it away, just because it’s Summer time, or we need to do issues. It’s not simply the US. We’re seeing an explosion in a particular state that ought to actually concern us. Let’s take a look at Arizona. They’re only one.5x larger than Kentucky. On Could the sixth they’d 402 circumstances, fairly near what we had yesterday. On June sixth they’d 1,119 circumstances. And on July sixth they’d 3,352. So we had 333 circumstances right now, they’re only one.5x larger they usually had 4K plus circumstances right now. That’s what occurs when this virus will get away from you. If you don’t take early motion whenever you see the numbers going up. And we are able to’t wait until we’re getting hundreds a day to take sure actions. Let’s take a look at AZ, TX, or others, what occurs after we get overwhelmed in our healthcare system. We bought states which are working out of ICU beds and hospital beds, we had a health care provider, we’re going to play the video. Are you able to think about having to resolve between 10 younger folks and which of them dwell and die? As a result of that’s taking place in sure states. So we’ve bought the nation the place circumstances are exploding. We bought states the place circumstances are going so quick they’re working out of ICU/Hospital beds and medical doctors are having to resolve who will get a ventilator and who doesn’t, and we’re beginning to see a rise, a lot smaller than different states, however nonetheless a rise in Kentucky.

  • So what is likely one of the issues we’ve been encouraging folks to do this we all know might help cease a rise? That’s to put on a masks. Come one Kenneth….no, that’s the retail federation…we’re gonna get there. Alright, so, it’s now not a query. I perceive that the CDC and the federal gov’t advised us various things. However that doesn’t get in the way in which of what science completely reveals now. I don’t get to return and rewrite what they advised us. All I get to do is ensure I talk what the science that’s unquestionable about, is {that a} masks helps cease the unfold of COVID-19. It protects different folks from getting it from you and now there are research exhibiting it may possibly shield you from getting it as effectively. In truth it’s now so accepted there at the moment are 22 totally different states which have carried out some type of order mandating face masks. If you happen to put on one, for you, it may possibly lower your threat of an infection by 65%. So, for those who weren’t keen to do it for different folks earlier than, do it for your self and for your loved ones. So #1 factor a masks can do, it may possibly shield the well being and the lifetime of your self and people round you. It will probably maintain us from shedding extra folks than we should always and it may possibly enable us to proceed to reopen the financial system. Don’t take my phrase for it, take Goldman-Sachs, they crunched the numbers and they’re saying the distinction between folks sporting masks and never sporting masks is 5% of our GDP. Let’s apply that to Kentucky- if we routinely put on masks vs if we don’t is $10.Four billion {dollars}. Everybody who needs our financial system not solely to reopen however keep open and thrive, oughta be sporting a masks each time they’re in public. This is likely one of the most subtle corporations on the earth saying to us, sporting a masks means $10.4B to the KY financial system

  • So, right now I signed an govt order that’s beginning tomorrow at 5PM, going to mandate that Kentuckians in public and in sure conditions MUST put on a facial overlaying, or masks. What this implies is that each one prospects in retail amenities, grocery shops, in most forward-facing companies, if you’re indoors and can’t get 6 ft from people, and out of doors for those who can’t be 6 ft away from one other particular person, you MUST put on a masks.

  • Now it’s not simply us that thinks it is the appropriate transfer, the Nationwide Retail Federation and the Kentucky Retail Affiliation requested us to do that. They needed us to open, they usually needed it to remain open. They requested each governor to require each particular person who isn’t encumbered by one other medical situation to put on a masks. That is to guard the workers, enterprise, and prospects. We’re submitting this order proper now. It’s gonna begin working for 1 month…30 days. I need to see how effectively we are able to do that. It’s going to be enforced by the Well being Departments and others. It’s going to be so simple as in the event that they aren’t sporting a masks in a place of job, then they can’t be served. It’s that easy. When you’re ready in line at a bar or restaurant you’ll want to put on your masks inside and outside till you are able to eat, you’re sporting one too. We can not let the place we’re, 333 circumstances, flip into 3,352, and the rationale Kentucky had achieved so well- is as a result of we took early aggressive motion, and we purchased in, and we’re in that very same second once more. However we don’t should shut every part down IF we’ll all observe these directions and put on a facial overlaying. If we do that, and if we REALLY do this- not simply after we assume others are watching, i feel we are able to maintain issues open, and if we do it we now have a shot at sports activities that different states are frightened about proper now. But it surely’s on us. It’s on us, it’s actually gonna come down as to whether we let private pleasure, or some perception that we now have liberty to unfold this to others, and due to this fact shouldn’t should put on one thing like this [holding a mask]. It’s all going to return down as to whether we’re keen to do it, whether or not we actually care about one another and our financial system, and for those who don’t like sporting these, and I consider that perhaps 20% of individuals. If we are able to put these emotions apart and serve the better good… Truthfully people, within the midst of a worldwide well being pandemic, sporting a masks makes loads of sense. Is it an excessive amount of to ask? I don’t assume so. It’s how our financial system rebounds, how protected our folks might be, the well being and the lives of Kentuckians all relies on our means to put on considered one of these. It’s now not voluntary, it’s obligatory and I’m keen to take no matter criticism comes with that. There are some exceptions, if in case you have a well being situation the place you’ll be able to’t do it, youngsters underneath 5, if you’re alone in a room, simply together with your family, exercising 6ft away from folks then you definitely don’t should do it. However for those who’re going to the grocery retailer, put considered one of these on and shield your fellow human being. I’d hope that we didn’t should get to a degree the place we now have to mandate issues. However the period of time we’ve needed to take care of this, the nervousness, the cabin fever, all of it has added up. But it surely’s time to get critical, and cease our escalation now. It’s time to get our numbers right down to a manageable and cheap plateau. And it’s time to verify we’re bringing in all these jobs we’re speaking about. We’ve reached out to a variety of folks about this, the Chamber of Commerce, they’re going to look over this, the enterprise neighborhood is supportive. They get it. They get that to proceed to open or keep open, we HAVE to put on these masks. Typically we consider the Chamber of Commerce and Labor as being on reverse sides, they aren’t. Quite a lot of our labor leaders, John Stovall representing our bus drivers on the market, bear in mind we misplaced a bus driver early on on this, additionally helps this. We reached out to Mayor Gordon in Lexington and they’re additionally very supportive. They’re all seeing that it’s simply time to do it. My hope is that if we do that for 30 days, we see circumstances lower considerably, after which we are able to take a look at whether or not we have to re-up it or not. However let’s not cease what we’re doing to defeat this virus.

  • Video from Coach Calipari helps sporting a masks and social distancing on this video

  • You’re gonna be seeing different well-known personalities in KY apart from Coach Cal giving related messages. He volunteered to do that, and we admire it.

  • The retailers affiliation, their willingness to do that, was that the tipping level for you or was it the current spike in circumstances or a mix? — It was actually two main issues coming collectively. Primary, was seeing an actual improve in KY circumstances, not only a small increase- it’s the final week, seeing the numbers within the excessive 200s, 300s, 400s, we’re seeing an escalation in KY. We will do one thing about it although. It’s not 300, at some point, then 600, then 900. The second piece is- you see that video the place somebody has to resolve who will get a ventilator? I don’t wanna see that right here. The retail letter was useful, however final week I mentioned if we noticed Four or 5 days of it, we had been going to do it. If we had been nonetheless plateaued, it will be tougher for folks to just accept, however we all know we now have to do it with the way in which issues are going.

  • — A Scott County circuit choose, somebody we now have by no means been in entrance of, primarily based on a case filed by somebody in that neighborhood that’s right here in state authorities, dominated right now that over 500 companies in Kentucky don’t should observe any guidelines in any way. That features farmer’s markets, seems to incorporate distilleries, although I do know distilleries are going to proceed to observe the rules, I consider I’ve that dedication. I consider the Pike County EXPO heart could also be included too. Might you think about what that might do if that place stuffed up? That is harmful and devastating and for a courtroom to say “I assume I simply don’t consider the virus exists and also you don’t should do something, no social distancing, nothing else” is totally irresponsible. The opposite factor they tried to do however you’ll be able to’t do in a restraining order. A restraining order retains you from doing issues. They’re saying I’ve to undergo a brand new course of if I’m going to place out an emergency order. It’s completely incorrect underneath the legislation and we’re sending it as much as the courtroom of appeals. We’re going to get this to the supreme courtroom. People, there are constitutional officers within the constructing which are pushing it. They need you to go to a farmers market the place there aren’t any restrictions. This shouldn’t be political, and all of it appears to be. The AG in Kentucky is the one AG within the nation, suing their governor over these restrictions. We have now to maneuver previous it. I’m going to do what it takes. He put in that order right now, we put within the masks order right now. We’ll beat him in courtroom.
