KGS COVID-19 Information

Last updated 4/5/2021

KGS staff are remaining actively engaged in research and public service. Nearly all of us are working remotely in accordance with the University of Kentucky response to the ongoing pandemic. A small number of our staff essential to IT, business, and research operations are in our buildings on a limited basis under strict protocols designed to limit possible transmission of the virus.

Our main UK campus office and Henderson office are closed to the public until further notice. The Earth Analysis Research Library is open to visitors on a limited basis by appointment. Please contact EARL staff for more information.

We may be away from our desks, but we are continuing to be as responsive as possible to our stakeholders in industry, government, academia, and the community. The KGS website includes educational and technical resources free for anyone to use. We also post regular updates on our Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram accounts as well as the News and Announcements panel on the KGS website.
