Kentucky is suspending visitation rights for those held in state prisons and similar institutions in light of the coronavirus, Gov. Andy Beshear announced today.
Inmates will instead be allowed one free call, and up to two contacts through controlled social media.
Beshear said there are eight cases of coronavirus in the state, and all patients are “stable, doing well.”
“A couple of these individuals may almost be through this,” Beshear said. “And that is very, very good news.”
