Kentucky’s regional game vs. Northwestern is now sold out, but if you have a ticket you’ll be happy to hear they’ve revised the mask mandate for the game. Per UK Athletics, they’ll be following the CDC update that details the following: if you’re vaccinated for COVID-19, there won’t be any need to wear a mask while in attendance. However, if you’re immunocompromised or haven’t received the vaccine yet, they’re still encouraging you to wear a mask while at the game.

This update comes just a few weeks before governor Andy Beshear’s statement that all restrictions will be lifted on June 11th. Of course, there could always be the possibility of setbacks or a change in the current course we’re on in regards to phasing out of the pandemic. However, this weekend is a good sign that we’re trending in the right direction.

Though Kentucky-Northwestern is sold out, you can still visit UK Athletics for tickets to the rest of the regional games.
