"We have taken very aggressive steps to try to stop or limit the spread of the coronavirus to try to protect our people," Beshear said. "But our neighbors from the south, in many instances, are not."

"If you are a Kentuckian living on that border, I need you to not go to Tennessee for anything other than work or helping a loved one or maybe the grocery, if it is there closer," he continued. "If you ultimately go down over that border and go to a restaurant or something that's not open in Kentucky, what you do is you bring the coronavirus back here in Kentucky."

Kentucky has 302 confirmed cases of COVID-19 as of Friday evening, Beshear said. Meanwhile, Tennessee has more than 1,200 confirmed cases, according to the state's health department website.

It will be devastating and 90% of it is directly the fault of Donald Rump

2. If a state is being irresponsible in keeping things open, then I'm all for avoiding that state, and

in short, avoid dying. All because some Tenn. shopkeeper wants to make a few bucks off of his KY neighbors (or in any other states bordering other such 'closed' states).
