Kentucky State is open, but activities are heavily restricted.
Kentucky State University President M. Christopher Brown II will provide the campus community with a weekly COVID-19 operational alert status update. This communication will contain pertinent COVID-19 information and be delivered via your official University email address every Thursday around noon.

The campus community is encouraged to check frequently the www.KYSU.EDU/COVID-19 website for the most up-to-date information.

President Brown recently named two task forces — Green (students) and Gold (staff). The Thorobred Green Task Force is chaired by Dr. Pernella Deams and the Thorobred Gold Task Force has Dr. Rachelle Johnson at the helm. The task forces will work to administer behavior compliance with Breds Back on the Hill: A Safe Return for Fall 2020.

Next week the campus will practice sheltering-in-place/quarantine conditions to assess COVID-19 safety compliance. Additionally, we will be promoting asymptomatic testing during COVID-19 Safety week.

Our campus community must remain vigilant in the fight against COVID-19, as it is literally a matter of life or death. The Commonwealth of Kentucky has lost a total of 856 lives to this disease. On yesterday, the national death toll reached 173,490. 

If you have a suggestion or a concern, please email COVID19@KYSU.EDU.

This is your Kentucky State University. We must protect ourselves and others. Let us remain Thorobred Strong.
