Colleges across the Bluegrass State are developing a range of COVID-19 safety plans as students return to campus for in-person classes.

The deadline for required vaccinations is Thursday at one campus in Owensboro.

Kentucky Wesleyan College set a July 1 deadline for all faculty and staff who work on campus to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. 

School leaders said the mandated vaccination is now part of the private college’s employment policy. 


Vaccination clinics have been held on campus for the convenience of faculty and staff. 

Medical and religious accommodations are available, and a college spokesperson said no one has been terminated because they have not been vaccinated.

Kentucky Wesleyan has not yet made a decision regarding student vaccinations.
