Report a Positive Test Result to the COVID-19 Response Team

While WKU will continue to follow guidance from public health officials and state/federal guidelines, we anticipate a return to normal operations on the Hill for the Fall 2021 semester.  

  • In accordance with updated guidance from the CDC and Gov. Beshear, those who are fully-vaccinated no longer have to wear a mask on WKU's campus with very limited exceptions, such as the Preston Center and Graves Gilbert Clinic.
  • In order to maximize the effectiveness of contact tracing and quarantine, any member of the WKU community who tests positive for COVID-19 and has recently been on campus should contact the WKU COVID-19 Response Team within 4 hours of receiving a positive test result.  
  • Gov. Beshear announced that on June 11, Kentucky’s mask mandate will be lifted, and venues can return to 100 percent capacity.
