University of Kentucky Announces Three of 229 Student Athletes and Staffers Test Positive for Coronavirus

The University of Kentucky provided a campus-wide coronavirus update Monday morning, revealing the school has added PCR diagnostic testing for coronavirus to its return to activity protocols.

The football team, the first group to return to campus, was initially only tested for antibodies. Last week 166 football players and staff members underwent diagnostic testing for COVID-19, yielding zero positive tests.

Following the football team, the men’s basketball, volleyball and women’s soccer team were the next wave to return to campus. Antibody testing of 42 student-athletes from that group yielded three positives for past infection. The diagnostic tests of 41 people and 21 staffers also revealed three positive cases. All three were required to quarantine in accordance with CDC and local health department guidelines.

    3 ÷ 229= .013 or 1.3%. Put on your mask and shut down the world already; we are all gonna die.

    It doesn’t matter the degree of seriousness you give Covid-19, the fact remains that if we had an ounce of leadership in this country we would already have this over with. Look at New Zealand, they locked down fast and hard and now are back to living life as normal.

      Yawn. You are right on one point: had Governor Cuomo not forced imported CV patients into NY nursing homes, thousands fewer would have died.

      Ned, you know it’s way easier to blame Trump.

      Not a fair comparison. New Zealand has a population of less than 5 million. And far, far, less world travelers.

      You realize that your Messiah Joe Biden called Trump a derogatory name for shutting down travel from China right? Biden is so in bed with China be would knee to their ever wish. Libs are blind and delusional.

    Of course, I am speaking to the problem so why would I expect you to understand. Wear a mask, let’s get stuff back, pretty simple. Or don’t and this will be existence until we have a vaccine. Which this group ignoramuses will either call a hoax or pretend like Trump personally developed it.

    Get off his D bro. This is isn’t about our sensitive president. It’s about all the leaders in this country, yeah he sucks, but so does the rest. It’s up to us to mask up so we can get back to the things we love. All of us, no matter how we vote. I might be a Dem and you a Rep, but at the end of the day, we all BLEED BLUE! All we want is normality to come back. So come on pals let’s work together on this one.
