The Kentucky Board of Veterinary Examiners (KBVE) is issuing an update related to the COVID-19 response.
The Board has received disturbing reports of veterinary businesses operating as normal during this State of Emergency, in direct contravention of the recommendations issued from the Kentucky Governor, the KBVE, and the Department of Public Health.
Note that the Secretary for the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) and the Department for Public Health (DPH), as empowered by Governor Andy Beshear under the current State of Emergency, signed a Directive mandating that all non-essential medical procedures and services be postponed effective March 18, 2020.
