COVID-19 has been an international headline for nearly the last 365 days. The global pandemic has impacted anyone and everything without regard. For the Kentucky Wildcats football program, they continue to face that same challenge as they deal with a minor issues related to COVID-19.

Justin Rowland of Rivals tweeted out Sunday evening that all UK Football activities will be put on pause until next week due to COVID-19. Of course no other information was released in regards to the amount of cases or who all has contracted the virus.

The program had their fair share of weeks this past season where they faced a serious stretch of COVID-19 cases. However they did manage to string together all 10 of their scheduled SEC games as well as their Gator Bowl appearance against N.C. State.

COVID-19 issues will be a major topic to monitor as the offseason progresses and could very well play a part what all the team is able to do on a daily basis.
