FRANKFORT, Ky. – On Thursday, Gov. Andy Beshear announced that Monday, April 27, the state will begin the gradual restart and reopening of our Phase 1 health care services and facilities, although they will operate vastly different than they did before the outbreak of the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19).
“To do this safely, make sure you are going above and beyond. This is our proof of concept in the medical community. We have to prove that we can do this the right way,” Gov. Beshear said.
On March 23, Gov. Beshear signed an executive order ceasing all elective procedures to limit the spread of COVID-19 and increase hospital capacity to treat patients.
Thanks to Team Kentucky’s extraordinary efforts to flatten the curve up to this point, Gov. Beshear and the Department for Public Health feel safe easing some restrictions on health care procedures and facilities.

Chamber of Commerce
As we emerge from our Coronavirus cocoons, we are discovering just how much the world has changed. One of the most effective tools in managing change is good communications.
Here are five tips for communicating change in the workplace:
Develop a reopening plan
You’ve already thought through ways to adapt your operations to keep employees and customers safe. Put them down in a clear plan for everyone to follow. Anticipate questions (e.g. Can I keep working from home? How are you improving sanitation? What changes in service can I expect?) and implement the answers into the document. Make it clear the plan is an evolving guide that will change as conditions do – but one that puts a premium on safety.

Getting Out There!
Tuesday was the first day the Ashland Alliance was fully staffed for many weeks. Our staff had been working from home, contacting members and finding ways to share information that kept your businesses informed and marketed to the community. I have to say how great it was seeing these ladies walk through the office door on Tuesday!
Missy has been working with our schools to make sure every senior that earned a Work Seal Certificate in partnership with the Ashland Alliance, our work partners and our school systems get their graduation cords, diploma seals and laminated cards they earned and deserve. She has also been busy with the application process for the upcoming Youth Leadership class. Kari has been working with businesses on marketing plans and how to get their message and products to market, as well as maintaining the Ashland Alliance website. Susan has been walking in on your businesses and asking how can we help and sharing what we are doing to help get this economy going. And, of course there is me. I am working with our partners on a few active projects that could lead to additional jobs for our community. We are also getting going on marketing all things Northeast Kentucky and what we have to offer.
