While some colleges struggle to contain COVID-19, the University of Kentucky is working overtime to mitigate the virus.

Doctor Deborah Birx, the coordinator of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, is praising UK for creating a COVID-19 response team and its efforts to keep students on campus, "To every parent who has a student the University of Kentucky, I’m not worried about your students because they’re wearing masks, socially distancing and doing everything that’s right," said Dr. Birx.

Students will stay on campus until November 25th when the semester ends. If you plan to visit your children at UK, you are encouraged to follow CDC guidelines.

Wednesday morning marked our coldest start to a day in nearly 3 weeks - morning low temperatures dove into the single digits for much of the Tri-State and our northerly winds routinely drove wind chill values well below zero throughout the Lower Ohio Valley. If there was any silver lining, our clear skies did allow temperatures to climb back into the mid 20s later in the day; though Evansville’s peak temperature of 25° remained 17° below average for this time of the year. The clear skies are expected to linger throughout the evening and much of the night ahead and will allow temperatures to fall back down into the mid to low teens early Thursday morning. We will fall to 14° in Evansville around daybreak Thursday.
