June 11, 2021 – Earlier today , Governor Beshear gave his last regularly scheduled press conference related to COVID-19. Gov. Beshear signed a new Executive Order (EO) which lifts the mask mandate for the state of Kentucky with a few exceptions, including public transit, long-term care facilities and health care facilities.

In line item 4.ii, the executive order states: “any person in a healthcare setting shall wear a face covering.” At this time, any person in a chiropractic office is still required to wear a face mask.

Further, in section 2, the order states that the “Healthy at Work” requirements and the “Healthy at Work” website are rescinded. Best practices and recommendations remain on the KYCOVID19.ky.gov website here under the health care guidance. Offices are encouraged to follow best practices and recommendations listed here.

We will continue to monitor any changes to the guidelines and update you accordingly. We appreciate your dedication and membership to the KAC as we continue to serve you and your office.
