Using Hotel Beds For COVID-19

Governor Beshear says Kentucky has more than 18,000 hospital beds, but believes thousands more will be needed when COVID-19 hits its peak. One of the ideas to help is to turn hotel room beds into beds for hospital type care.Governor Beshear said they are currently under contract to get 1,600 additional beds from hotels.With people being told to stay at home, few are traveling. This has left many hotels either empty or having their occupancy drastically reduced.
