Effective June 14 Health and Safety Guidelines
New Campus COVID-19 Policies
New campus policies regarding COVID-19 were implemented June 14. These reflect current recommendations of the CDC, direction from state government, guidance from health department officials and the counsel of our own START team of health scientists and clinicians.
Masks and Vaccines
People who are vaccinated are not required to wear masks or face coverings in campus outdoor spaces or inside non-UK HealthCare campus buildings.
Vaccines are not mandated, but strongly encouraged. We will continue to monitor this issue and change plans, if necessary, to ensure the health and safety of our campus.
Screening, Testing and Tracing
Members of the UK community who have been vaccinated no longer are required to complete the university’s daily screener.
Students who are vaccinated will not be required to complete COVID-19 entry or ongoing testing.
No quarantine or tracing protocols will be required for vaccinated individuals. All other contact tracing protocols will remain in place for individuals who are not vaccinated.
