The University of Kentucky has announced plans for the return of men’s basketball players this week.

Over the last month, the school has slowly been welcoming back and screening football and volleyball players, a process that has now been completed.

Now, the initial screening process will begin for the men’s basketball team on June 28th with the return to activity planned for later that week. An initial screening process for each player will occur prior to beginning voluntary activities that includes antibody testing.

There will be daily student-athlete and staff screening prior to entering a facility, including temperature checks and completion of a COVID-19 symptom questionnaire. UK will also provide personal protective equipment for student-athletes and staff to wear in hopes of preventing the virus from spreading on campus.

All of this means we can expect to see players returning to Lexington later this week with hope that they can begin working out next week, so long as none of them test positive for COVID-19.
