State Mandates Effecting ARH Facilities


Statewide Indoor Facecovering Mandate

Kentuckians are required to wear face coverings under several circumstances for the next 30 days. Those environments include: while inside or waiting in line at a retail establishment, while waiting for or riding on public transportation, private car service or ride-sharing vehicles, and while in outdoor spaces where people cannot maintain six feet of social distance. Exemptions include children who are 5 or younger and any person with a disability, or a physical or mental impairment, that prevents them from safely wearing a face covering. Effective July 9th.

Travel Advisory

A 14-day self-quarantine is recommended for travelers who went to any of eight states – Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Nevada, South Carolina and Texas – that were reporting a positive coronavirus testing rate equal to or greater than 15%. The advisory also included Mississippi, which was quickly approaching a positive testing rate of 15%, and the U.S. Territory of Puerto Rico. Effective July 20th.
