KYW-TV reported on Friday that Kentucky travel restrictions are set to go into effect today for all U.S. states except Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
Travel to those states will be restricted to a limited number of travelers, and they’ll be limited to one of four travel bands: the U.K., Australia, Canada, or New Zealand.
Kentucky Travel Restriction Details:Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin, along with the other governors in the state, announced the new restrictions on Wednesday, which will take effect at midnight EST on July 19, as reported by KYW.
Travel to all U: Kentucky, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Virginia will be prohibited.
All travel between the four states will also be restricted for a maximum of 15 days.
Kentuckians will also need to obtain a Kentucky driver’s license.
Kentucky residents must complete a form to obtain their drivers licenses.
The Kentucky governor’s office did not immediately respond to Ars’ request for comment.
The U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs has also warned that the restrictions will impact some individuals and small businesses in the U, but the UPA has yet to comment.
The new restrictions will also affect Kentucky residents who travel abroad to attend weddings or other public events.
In addition, all Kentucky businesses will be required to close for 90 days.
“The governor is also calling for a full audit of all Kentucky tourism operations,” the governor’s press secretary told the KYW reporter.
“The audit is expected to be completed by the end of the month.”
The U.P.S.’s report on the Kentucky travel restriction is still being translated into English, but it notes that a group of lawmakers in Kentucky, led by state Senator James L. Biederman, have expressed their concerns over the travel restrictions.
“While Kentucky’s state law does not prohibit the use of travel to or from the U; the travel restriction would be in place if the governor and legislature passed the bill as written,” the report states.
The UPA’s spokesman told the news outlet that Kentucky’s governor had not yet received a copy of the UPI report and “we will continue to monitor the situation closely.”
