Report a Positive Test Result to the COVID Assistance Line

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


  • The WKU COVID-19 Task Force has updated masking guidance to reflect changes in recommendations from our health partners and regional data. Masks are required at all times when in public areas or shared spaces within buildings, including hallways, classrooms, laboratories, elevators, etc. Masks are also required when in a vehicle with other persons, including cars, vans, and buses.The Taskforce will continue to monitor appropriate variables to determine when masking will again become optional for vaccinated individuals.
