  • WKU's department of Environmental Health and Safety is offering KN95 masks to all members of the WKU Community at no cost. To request KN95 masks, email covid.help@wku.edu.
  • Any member of the WKU Community who tests positive or has been identified as a close contact with a COVID-19 positive individual must contact the WKU COVID Assistance Line within four hours by calling 270-745-2019. We will continue to provide quarantine space for residential students who test positive.
  • Vaccines and boosters are readily available in our area, including the Graves Gilbert Clinic on campus. The COVID vaccine remains our best defense against the virus.
