Calloway County Judge/Executive Kenny Imes issued an executive order to coordinate the county’s response to the novel coronavirus. He said the government will continue to provide services.

The order requires county officials follow the directives issued by Governor Andy Beshear and the Calloway County Health Department. It also states the local government is responsible for both providing services to the county and protecting the health of its citizens. Imes said the order seeks to reaffirm citizens of the continuity of government. 

“The Executive Order is to reaffirm that your local government is operating and will remain open and available to the public,” Imes said in a press release. “However, it is asked for the protection of officials and employees that if you are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19 to please refrain from visiting these locations in an effort to limit possible contamination.”

The order states county employees may use sick leave or vacation time to care for members of their family. Employees over the age of 60 may use sick leave to avoid interaction with the public.

No cases of COVID-19 have been reported in Calloway County.
