    President Joe Biden's Kentucky trip will hinge on a negative COVID-19 test, the White House confirmed Friday. Biden and first lady Jill Biden are scheduled to travel to the Bluegrass State next week, which has been ravaged by storms leaving at least 37 dead and hundreds who remain unaccounted for. However, the president has the coronavirus as of Friday, and the trip won't happen unless that changes over the next three days. BIDEN STILL POSITIVE WITH COVID-19, BUT SYMPTOMS 'ALMOST COMPLETELY RESOLVED' "As it relates to his travel on Monday, he will only travel if he tests negative," White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Friday. The White House has been busy adding events to Biden's public schedule next week amid the president's second period of isolation, this time with a "rebound" COVID-19 infection. He is yet to test negative after disclosing his second round of positivity last Saturday. As it stands, the first couple will fly to eastern Kentucky next Monday, where they will meet Gov. Andy Beshear (D-KY) and first lady Britainy Beshear...
    (CNN)President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden are scheduled to travel to Kentucky on Monday after deadly floods in the eastern part of the state killed more than three dozen people and destroyed communities. The Bidens will join Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear and the state's first lady, Britainy Beshear, in visiting families affected by the flooding. They will survey recovery efforts at a local Federal Emergency Management Agency State Disaster Recovery Center, according to the White House. At least 37 people are dead after heavy rains led to widespread flooding last week. Rescue workers continue to search for those who are missing. The flooding has destroyed communities, swept away entire homes and displaced thousands of Kentuckians. It has also knocked out essential power and water utilities, some of which has yet to be restored.

    Dr. Caitlin Bernard, an Indiana OBGYN, received a call from a doctor in Ohio about a 10-year-old child abuse victim in need of an abortion  A 10-year-old child abuse victim was forced to seek an abortion in Indiana after her home state of Ohio barred abortion following the Supreme Court decision to overturn of Roe v. Wade. A child abuse doctor in Ohio sought the help of Dr. Caitlin Bernard, an Indianapolis obstetrician-gynecologist, on Monday to help the girl rid of her pregnancy after Ohio banned abortion past six weeks - hours after the 6-3 Supreme Court vote, The Columbus Dispatch reported.   The child was six weeks and three days pregnant - therefore, ineligible by just three days to receive the procedure in her home state. Abortion advocates in the state attempted to halt Ohio's six-week abortion ban, but the effort was denied by a judge on Friday.  As of Friday, Indiana's only abortion restriction is a law requiring clinics to ask women if their abortion is coerced - which is illegal, Fox 59 reported. The law went into effect...

    Kentucky Republicans are looking to get even with California after its former attorney general banned taxpayer-funded travel to their state due to a law Californian leaders viewed as discriminatory against gay people. “We don’t want California trying to replace our values with theirs,” said Republican state Sen. Stephen Meredith of Leitchfield. The new effort would prevent a pair of California companies from operating in the Bluegrass State, the Lexington Herald-Leader reports. Meredith, also chairman of the Kentucky Legislature’s Government Contract Review Committee, said his committee will lead a review of two contracts totaling half a million dollars that California would earn through services rendered to the University of Louisville — if they are approved by the committee. One contract, worth $373,600, would allow Korn Ferry International of Los Angeles to provide consulting services and help in the recruiting process to fill senior-level positions at the university. A similar contract, worth $252,800, would allow SP&A Executive Search in Whittier, California, to assist in similar recruiting efforts. “I think our committee will not approve those two contracts with California businesses. We hope...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago has added Kentucky, Nevada, Texas, and Wyoming to the list of states and territories covered by the city’s emergency travel order, which requires people to self-quarantine for 14 days after arriving from COVID-19 hotspots. It’s the first time Wyoming is on the list, but Kentucky, Nevada, and Texas have been included before, and later removed, as their infection rates have fluctuated. The changes to the list will go into effect on Friday, when the emergency travel order will cover 23 states and territories: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. States and territories are added to the city’s list when they have more than 15 new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 resident population, per day, over a 7-day rolling average. The Chicago Department of Public Health said Georgia might be removed from the list next week, after getting their daily case average under 15 cases per 100,000 population.
