WKU Athletics confirmed to the Herald on Tuesday morning that 75% of WKU’s student-athletes and 88% of WKU Athletics’ staff have received vaccinations as of Monday, Aug. 30.

WKU Athletics will continue to follow the university’s COVID-19 protocols. Vaccinations are not required to attend games, but everyone on WKU’s campuses is required to wear a mask indoors regardless of vaccination status until further notice.

Conference USA has not yet made an announcement regarding teams forfeiting games due to COVID-19 infections, but WKU’s vaccination rates should help prevent major outbreaks throughout the fall season.
