Daily COVID-19 Update: June 4, 2020

Dear Bereans,

This is the update for Thursday, June 4, 2020.

Kentucky update

Kentucky reported 295 new cases today (another uptick) and 8 new deaths.

There was also an article in the NY Times today on the impact of the coronavirus internationally, as the pandemic has now established itself in a number of countries in South America, Africa and South Asia.  The global incidence of cases is continuing to increase, now at more than 100,000 per day.   In many of these countries, the health care systems are being overwhelmed by the numbers of cases and many people are suffering and dying, sometimes without being able to obtain medical treatment.  This is a truly terrible situation, our hearts go out to our brothers and sisters in other countries.

Announcement regarding the SGA

Brady Willis has been named the Summer SGA President.  He along with other summer SGA members are planning and will be announcing an election plan for the 2020-2021 academic year within the next few weeks.  Students should also know that Brady has been appointed to the Logistics team which is making plans supporting the options for campus re-opening.  Students may be in touch with Brady if they wish to provide input to the planning process.  (Thanks, Brady!)

Stay safe,

Lyle Roelofs, President
