LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Governor Andy Beshear issued a new order Friday, Dec. 18. It applies to all public kindergarten through 12th grade schools and is a recommendation for every private school.

The order calls for schools in red zone counties to delay in-person instruction until Jan. 11 instead of Jan. 4.

It also mandates that schools must provide meaningful virtual options for students who opt not to resume in-person instruction.

Employees who are in the CDC and FDA high-risk category who request an alternative or virtual work assignment must be accommodated until vaccinations can be implemented.
