Subject: COVID-19 Update
It was a banner weekend for the university as NKU hosted COVID-19 vaccinations at BB&T Arena. We appreciate the partnership with St. Elizabeth to hold the mass vaccination center and continue to hear good things about how smoothly it went.
Our university took a big step forward this weekend with vaccinating more of our campus community. This is good news for NKU and the Commonwealth, as it continues to get shots in the arms of residents. About 30 percent of Kentucky’s population has received at least one dose of the vaccine. Those with the highest risk have been vaccinated, but the majority of the population has not been vaccinated yet. Please continue to be diligent in taking COVID-19 precautions and following the Norse Nine principles. And as you come to campus, remember these important points:
Our region appears to be at a tipping point, and we ask that you remain aware and careful. Together, we can help move everyone along the fastest path back to normal.
Thank you for all you do for our university each day.
