Seating Is Limited But Restaurants Open In KY

May 24, 2020

Restaurants are allowed to open in Kentucky today at 33% seating capacity inside and outdoor dining with social distancing. Kelin Beatie is the manager of Zim’s Café at Lexington’s Old Courthouse told WUKY they are focusing on patio dining for now. “We’re not quite ready to have people inside just yet. We don’t want to rush into anything but we’re definitely trying to really vamp up our outside and make sure everything is comfortable and people want to be outside. We’ve all been locked up in our houses all this time so everybody wants to be outside anyway so that’s great.”

As officials scale up Kentucky's ability to trace contacts of those diagnosed with COVID-19, the state will be employing a three-part system to assess those affected, alert people who came into close proximity, and provide support for anyone asked to self-quarantine.

While we are cautious in our interpretation of numbers, it is telling that our experts want us to be more like South Korea or Iceland, rather than many of the European nations whose healthcare systems we admire. It appears that Covid 19 is capable of wrecking and overwhelming any healthcare system. Our best weapons are not ventilators, but handwashing and avoiding crowds.
