The University of Kentucky football team completed the initial screening process and all student-athletes have returned to campus.

The following information is from a press release sent out by UK Monday morning.

Football student-athletes returned to campus in three groups beginning on June 8, with each completing an initial screening process before being cleared to participate in voluntary workouts. In total, 106 student-athletes were cleared for participation after completing the initial screening process. Of those 106, six tested positive for past infection through antibody testing. The student-athletes who tested positive went through an evaluation process and were subsequently cleared to participate.

Subsequently, all student-athletes and Athlete Development & Performance staff who have been present at workouts have completed a daily screening process that includes a temperature check and the completion of a COVID-19 symptom questionnaire.

In addition to the football team completing the screening process, the volleyball team also resumed activities on campus. Next up is the men’s basketball team on June 28. Men’s soccer, women’s soccer, and women’s basketball will resume in July.
