A group of adults in their 20s intentionally got together "thinking they were invincible", blatantly ignoring Kentucky's guidance to practice social distancing, Gov. Andy Beshear said at a press conference. All stories linked in the newsletter are free to access. "We are battling for the health, and even the lives, of our parents and our grandparents".

In a televised interview with an global media outlet, Ryan has said, "The danger right now with the lockdowns. if we don't put in place the strong public health measures now, when those movement restrictions and lockdowns are lifted, the danger is the disease will jump back up". "We ought to be much better than that". He warned young people that while they may not feel serious symptoms from the virus, they are still able to spread it to others who may, such as the elderly and people with underlying health issues.

In New York state, more than half of coronavirus cases - 53% - have been among young people between the ages of 18 and 49, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Sunday.

That kind of behavior can not stand in Kentucky, where the number of confirmed cases has reached 163 with four dead, Beshear said Tuesday.

Beshear says state workers will be donating time at food banks across the state.

Beshear also confirmed four people have fully recovered from COVID-19. The governor only noted that he hoped he would never have to report on a similar gathering again.

While speaking to an worldwide media outlet, Governor Andy Beshear said that the partygoers got together intentionally because they thought "they were invincible". At least 680 people had died as of Tuesday afternoon. "Do anything but have a damn coronavirus party".
