Today, Lexington Mayor Linda Gorton presented her budget proposal for the city’s upcoming fiscal year. To make up for a predicted $40 million revenue shortfall, Gorton proposed major cuts from the affordable housing fund, a number of social service agencies, and LexArts, among others. Today, Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear went over the 10 rules for #HealthyAtWork as the state slowly reopens. No common areas, continued social distancing, and limited face-to-face meetings are all on the list. So many things today feel hard and sad. Which is all the more reason to focus on what we are capable of doing for each other. Because maybe we will get through this if we can do it together. #TogetherKY #TeamKentucky #HealthyatHome

Lexington in the Time of COVID-19 is an artwork about people practicing social distancing at a time of a deadly virus. And also offering kindness.
