Kentucky’s Governor Andy Beshear announced the green lighting for the Governor’s Mansion in response to another Kentuckian death death due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-10). He said this lets “people know that we are thinking about them, that we care about them, that we love every single Kentuckian around us.”
Beshear said, “Tonight, and every night that I have to report a fatality, it’s a small thing but we’re going to light the Kentucky Governor’s Mansion green. Green is the color of compassion, it’s the color of empathy. It’s also a color of renewal.” He says this “lets people know that we are thinking about them, that we care about them, that we love every single Kentuckian around us.”
A few days later, in addition to asking churches to ring their bells daily at 10 a.m., Gov. Beshear encourages communities to light up their homes and businesses green in a show of solidarity. There are examples all over of individuals and businesses joining together in this spread of green light across the Commonwealth State. Even the ark has gone green.
Instead of Kentucky bluegrass, it’s an illumination of green.

Bart Flener, Russellville Independent Schools Superintendent said, “finding a green light bulb right now can be rather difficult,” as Russellville Independent Schools give away 1,200 green light bulbs. Here are some SATCO bulbs that help illuminate green.
