Kentucky is still under a state of emergency, but a few restrictions have been lifted.
The state’s governor and legislative leaders announced a three-day partial restoration of a number of travel restrictions and restrictions that were placed on Kentuckyers during the week after the wildfires.
The governors of Kentucky, West Virginia and Kentucky have also signed into law a bill that expands the use of emergency funds to pay for school buses and other school transportation.
The governor’s office said the state is “now reopening Kentucky schools and districts, as they have been open since January 7.”
The Kentucky Emergency Management Agency has announced the first partial restoration in a few days.
It also said that people who are currently impacted by the wildfire restrictions can resume using their existing travel arrangements as of Saturday, August 14.
People affected by the restrictions can return to their Kentucky homes or their homes in Kentucky, the agency said.
The agency said that residents who do not have insurance or who have an emergency must have a driver’s license or an identification card to travel in Kentucky.
The Kentucky governor’s offices said people can still purchase travel tickets from Kentucky Travel Service and the Kentucky Travel and Tourism Council.
People who are temporarily restricted in Kentucky may not be able to travel to other states.
They will be able visit Kentucky and their Kentucky residents are able to visit Kentucky for up to six months at a time, the governor’s spokesman, Paul Bowerman, said.
The governor has asked Kentucky residents to be patient as the restoration takes place.
Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin said people should wait until next weekend to visit.
The emergency declaration was lifted as of Wednesday afternoon, according to the Kentucky Department of Emergency Management.
The governor’s staff has posted on the state’s website that the state has restored full control of Kentucky.
