FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVF) — Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear released the state's updated numbers on COVID-19 during his daily briefing Friday.

The state has a total of 1,693 cases of COVID-19, 90 people have died and a total of 464 people have recovered from the illness.

Beshear also addressed religious leaders and church members, urging them to stay home this Easter. He said all but about seven churches have agreed not to gather in person this Sunday, and continued to ask all congregations not to gather.

For those who decide to participate in a mass gathering of any type of which the state is notified of, the license plates of those individuals will be recorded and given to health department officials. They will then visit the individuals home bringing with them an order to quarantine for 14 days.

The enforcement does not apply to drive-in churches.
