HEBRON, Ky. — People returning from their vacations are learning about Kentucky's new travel advisory.
On Monday, Gov. Andy Beshear took action requesting that anyone who is traveling to some of the states hardest hit by the pandemic to self-quarantine when they get home.
"On one side I understand because this is still here, we still have it. It’s been months,” said Federica Stamper, a mother.
For months, the coronavirus has changed many lives including Stamper’s. She and her daughter just returned from Florida after a vacation.
“This is my fourth quarantine. Basically self-imposed, it’s getting a little ---I’m getting a bit tired,” Stamper said.
Stamper is just learning about Beshear’s recent travel advisory.
Beshear is recommending anyone traveling to a state that is reporting a positive coronavirus testing rate of 15 percent or higher to self-quarantine for two weeks.
Currently, those states are Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Nevada, South Carolina and Texas.
As of right now, the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky airport already has signs about the requirements for wearing masks, but they’re in discussions on how they will alert incoming passengers.
As for Stamper, she’s not happy about the self-quarantine, but will follow the guideline out of safety.
“Oh, if law states that I have to, then I have to. I don’t really want to cause I have things to get done and daughter, she has to do driving school and so on so these two weeks will put me behind everything,” Stamper said.
Mississippi and Puerto Rico could soon join the list in the travel advisory. Both of those areas are close to the 15 percent positive coronavirus test rate.
