The University of Kentucky (UK) has reported hundreds of positive coronavirus cases three weeks into in-person fall classes, but school officials say they are waiting on “further data” before deciding whether to transition to online learning, reports the Courier Journal.
According to the Courier Journal, UK’s COVID-19 reporting dashboard reported 254 positive test results as of Aug. 22, but that number only includes data from the first testing phase. The school still awaits data from the second phase, which includes retesting roughly 5,000 students in fraternities and sororities.
