Hair salons, gyms, theaters and other public facing businesses must close by 5 p.m. Wednesday to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Gov. Andy Beshear said. Exempt businesses include those that provide essential services, such as grocery stores, gas stations, laundromats, vet clinics, hotels, food processors, auto and home repair businesses, post offices, warehousing and distribution and pharmacies. Those businesses can stay open, Beshear said, but they must practice social distancing.
