All UK football players, staff test negative for COVID-19

Finally, there’s good news to report. Kentucky’s football players and staff have gotten their COVID-19 results back, and all 161 tests have reportedly come back negative. That’s according to Lewis Poore, Kentucky kicker Chance Poore’s dad. He posted the happy announcement on Twitter Sunday night.

The news comes just days after it was announced Kentucky was changing its coronavirus testing policy to include testing all athletes for current cases of the virus. Previously, members of the football team were each given the COVID-19 antibody test upon the athletes’ return to campus in late June. Six of the 106 student-athletes tested positive for a past infection through the antibody testing at that time.

Now, it appears as though UK’s socially-distanced and fully-masked return to campus is working.


Shoutout to Scoop Poore.

    A great testament to Stoops and what he is doing here we are the only program without a positive test. We set the standards in everything .I can see all the other schools asking Mitch for permission to speak with Stoops on what protocol he has implemented. Stoops willbe the reason we have CFB this season great job UK athletics.

    Not to say someone might get it, but outstanding news. Shows discipline this team has and if there’s a season look out. Our state can look to this as an example. You can still lead your life and go about business if practice distancing and wear a mask. The proof is shown in this news – any other comments are fake news as this is proof!

    Masks do nothing. Underwear does not stop farts.

      Tell you what – have your buddy stand behind you and then take a poop. He’s not gonna like it either way, but bet he’d rather you wear underwear. One he smells, the other he wears.
