UK Unveils Plans and Protocols for Players’ Safe Return to Campus

About an hour after Kentucky Sports Radio reported that members of the Kentucky football team would return to team activities with a Monday morning workout, the University of Kentucky unveiled its plan for bringing players back to campus.

Beginning Monday, June 8 football players and essential staff will resume work on-campus. UK will limit who the players interact with to strength coaches, nutritionists and trainers, keeping coaches at home for the foreseeable future.

Players will receive antibody testing before they are allowed to resume voluntary activities. It’s one of the many protocols in place to protect the student-athletes.

  • An initial screening process for each student-athlete prior to beginning voluntary activities that includes antibody testing
  • Daily student-athlete and staff screening prior to entering a facility, including temperature checks and completion of a COVID-19 symptom questionnaire
  • Acknowledgement of vulnerable populations for both student-athletes and staff and following recommended accommodations and restrictions
  • Proactive education on COVID-19 best practices
  • Establishment of single entry and exit procedures and securing other doors to minimize facility use
  • Providing personal protective equipment for student-athletes and staff and setting rules for when masks must be worn

These protocols only apply to the football team as of now. Return to activity plans for other teams will be released as they are finalized.

Players who remained in Lexington will begin workouts Monday. Returners who are coming back to Lexington from out of town will begin the screening process on June 8 with the goal of beginning voluntary workouts on June 15. Newcomers will begin the screening process on June 15 with the goal of beginning voluntary workouts on June 22.

“We will not compromise the safety and well-being of our student-athletes in this process, taking all possible precautions,” athletics director Mitch Barnhart said. “Once we take this important step in returning to activity, we will shift our focus to preparing to return to play and bringing the entire UK family – student-athletes, coaches and fans alike – back together this fall in a responsible and safe way.”

    We have Democrat governors that refuses to open up states what 2 weeks ago, now they are out encouraging all of these protests and large gatherings. Its pretty same to say the Covid19 angle has failed. Is it real? Yeah, is it as bad as they say? No. No one was doing what they want, stock market still higher than it was several years ago, so now they start race wars.

      Failed to mention, anyone hear about Hillary and a bunch of other ex-Obama aids that have been ordered to testify within the last few days? Bet most of you didn’t, too busy with the distraction. Look it up, plenty big name places had to put out a little blurb about it. Impeachment fail, White House ordered investigation, random virus released and failing, now riots. All back to back to back….If you don’t think somethings up, not sure what to tell you. And F Alex Jones.

      You’re either woefully ignorant, or delusional

      It’s all part of the agenda, both sides are in on it and following the script, one side is no better than the other. It is all distraction to keep us from looking at what they’re really doing, get ready for plandemic II and another lockdown/martial law. Red vs blue, liberal vs conservative, Democrat vs Republican all serve one purpose…to give the illusion that we have a choice or a say in what happens in this country….WE DON’T.

      Healthcare for profit used to be illegal until Nixon made it for profit, Reagan did even further damage to healthcare. The Bush family, the Clintons, Obama and Trump have all done damage to this country from which we will never recover.

      Executive Orders That Have Already Been Signed by U.S. Presidents

      10995 – Seizure of all communications media.
      10997 – Seizure of all electric power, fuels, minerals, public and private
      10998 – Seizure of all food supplies and resources both public and private, all farms and all farm equipment.
      10999 – Seizure of all types of transportation, including personal cars, trucks, or vehicles of any kind, and total control over the highways, seaports, and waterways.
      11000 – Seizure of all civilians for work under Federal supervision. This includes the splitting of families and children from their parents.
      11001 – Seizure of all health, education and welfare facilities, both public and private.
      11002 – All people in the United States to undergo mandatory registration at the United States Post Offices.
      11003 – Seizure of all aircraft and all airports.
      11004 – Authorization for forced relocation.
      11005 – Seizure of all railroads, waterways, and all storage facilities, both public and private.
      11051 – Authorization to put “executive orders” into effect in “times of increased international tension or financial crisis.”

      It is clear that in a time of crisis, even one manufactured by the globalists, you own nothing, not even your children or your own life.
