An interdisciplinary group of UK HealthCare physicians and clinical and research leaders at the University of Kentucky — the START (Screening, Testing and Tracing, to Accelerate Restart and Transition) team — will continue to examine health and safety guidance throughout the summer and into the fall.

Testing and Vaccines

UK students and employees can visit University Health Service for more information about COVID-19 testing and vaccines.

The university follows all current federal, state and local guidelines related to quarantine and isolation. If anyone tests positive for COVID-19 or has been exposed to COVID, they should review the CDC’s latest guidance and contact Health Corps.
