To keep you and our community safe, follow these requirements for a successful, healthy semester.

✔ Mask Up.

Protect. Respect. Do your part. Masks or face coverings are required unless individuals are alone in a room, alone outside, eating, drinking, or exercising or when it interferes with required curricular activities.

✔ Wash Your Hands.

Sing the UK fight song while you wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, 70% alcohol-based hand sanitizer should be used. 

✔ Physical Distance.

Everyone on campus is required to maintain a distance of six feet in any public space, both indoors and outdoors.

✔ Complete Your Daily Wellness Screening.

Every UK student, faculty member and staff member who has not been vaccinated and physically comes to campus is required to conduct daily screening. 

Testing, Tracing and Quarantine

All students—graduate, undergraduate and professional—who plan to come to campus for any reason and have not been vaccinated, were required to be tested. The university is now conducting random retesting among the student population coming to campus. Ongoing testing is available for all students and employees. And, all members of the university community who physically come to campus and have not been vaccinated are required to participate in the daily screening as well.
