The Healthy at Work phase of reopening Kentucky businesses gained steam over the past couple of weeks with restaurants scheduled opening for dine-in customers on May 22, 2020. Restaurants must adhere to a set of industry specific guidelines provided by Governor Andy Beshear in addition to a set of minimum requirements which applies to most businesses in Kentucky. The Kentucky ABC also provided updated guidance to clarify that it is still allowing for restaurants to provide alcohol with curbside service, delivery, and carry-out, since restaurants will not be operating at full capacity.

Monday, March 16, 2020, Kentucky’s Governor Beshear signed an executive order restricting the sale of food, beverages, and all alcoholic beverages to carry-out, delivery and drive thru, prohibiting onsite consumption. In addition, the order mandates social distancing of six feet for patrons and employees engaging in carry-out, delivery and drive-thru services. At this time, the Kentucky Alcoholic Beverage Control board has not offered guidance on how the order will impact its operations and whether it will grant relief in licensing, renewal, and/or operations of affected Kentucky licensees. The continued closure of services has also caused Churchill Downs to reschedule the 146th Kentucky Derby from May 2nd to September 5th, the first time the Derby has been postponed since 1945.
