Preparations for safety are taking place for the Kentucky State Fair and the Kentucky Derby, but Mayor Greg Fischer says they will be “reconsidered” if positive tests reach 10%. As it stands now, 7.5% of people who take a COVID-19 test are positive, up from 5.5%.
Health officials said contract tracing has traced many cases back to people who have attended gatherings or house parties with friends. “If you’re planning on having a house party or going to party…I would ask you to please postpone it,” Fischer said. The Oldham County Fair is now underway. Here’s what to expect there.
