COVID-19 cases in the Commonwealth are breaking records
As we enter a season that typically comes with increased illnesses, COVID-19 cases are higher than before in Kentucky. Governor Andy Beshear announced a record-breaking day of cases Wednesday with 1,346. As people have traveled to various parts of the country for fall break, including states who have lifted restrictions, it’s more important now than ever to continue doing the things we know to do:

  • Wear your mask (Gov. Beshear has extended the mandate)
  • Social distance of at least six feet
  • Wash your hands thoroughly and often 
  • Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth
  • Sanitize the areas you come in contact with, especially high-touch areas
  • If you’re sick, stay in your room or your home

Thorobreds had the opportunity to get tested for COVID-19 and vaccinated for the flu Tuesday on campus. If you missed your chance, please get vaccinated as soon as possible. Contracting the flu could severely weaken your immune system and further complicate your health during the pandemic. 

As we celebrate coronation, Founder’s Day and commencement, it’s important to continue to protect your health and the health of those around you. Be Thoro and help stop the spread.
