Gov. Beshear confirmed in a Tuesday afternoon press conference two more COVID-19 cases in Harrison County. They are a 60-year-old male and a 54-year-old female.

That brings the state's current total of cases to eight.

They are a 27-year-old woman, a 67-year-old woman and a 68-year-old man.

"There is [sic] links between all of the Harrison County individuals," Gov Beshear said. "Those links are slightly different, and we can't disclose them at the time, but it's important to note they are all linked."

One of those Harrison County patients also worked at the Cynthiana Walmart. Gov. Beshear said the store is still safe for shoppers.

The Lexington cases are two men, a 49-year-old and a 68-year-old. The Jefferson County case is a 69-year-old man.

Public Health Commissioner Dr. Steven Stack said Tuesday morning the first six patients are showing signs of improvement.

This is a developing story.
