Our COVID-19 Taskforce continues to work through the daily challenges presented by the pandemic on a day-to-day basis. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to build out plans, communicate information, and answer questions. You will receive additional communication and guidance from divisional leaders tomorrow. Be sure to visit the COVID-19 website: https://www.wku.edu/covid19/ frequently, as updates are being published daily.
