Gov. Andy Beshear announced several more reopening dates for businesses Thursday as Kentucky moves forward with lifting pandemic-related restrictions.

On June 8, according to the governor, in-home childcare can return with 10 or fewer children. On June 15, center-based licensed child care programs can reopen to all families.

It is critical to parents and has been critical to our essential workers,” Cabinet for Health and Family Services Sec. Eric Friedlander said. “It’s always a balance between protecting ourselves and our families and going to back to being Healthy at Work.”

Beshear also announced bars, gatherings with 50 people or fewer and venues that hold 50 people or fewer can reopen June 29. Bars can also reopen June 29.

Additionally, auctions can resume June 1 and horse shows can resume June 8.

Campgrounds in Ohio were allowed to reopen Thursday with restrictions in place. Some parks are reopening facilities, activities and rentals hoping for good business this Memorial Day weekend.
