UPDATE: Kentucky changing coronavirus policy; will test all athletes

The University of Kentucky is changing its coronavirus testing policy. KSR has learned the university will now be testing all athletes for the virus. The football team is going through its first round of team-wide testing this week.

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 this antibody testing. However, this did not appear to be a streamlined policy across all sports, as a recruit – Skyy Clark – mentioned the basketball program’s plan for testing players “once or twice” per week for current infections in a conversation with KSR.

“[John Calipari] has got it all figured out, they do Zoom calls with them and everything,” Clark told KSR on the Sources Say podcast. “They’re getting the kids tested, I think once or twice a week, something like that.”

Now, all student athletes will begin following the same policy. Bring on the tests.

      I’m sure your co-worker had no underlying health issues right?

      Not anymore than the average person. You do not work for 12 hour shifts on your feet and be chronically ill.
