Daily COVID-19 Update: June 23, 2020

Dear Bereans,

This is the update for Tuesday, June 23, 2020, primary election day in Kentucky!

Kentucky update

Kentucky is reporting 315 new cases today and 11 additional deaths.  The 7-day averages remain quite steady.   Madison County reported 3 new cases again today (for an overall total of 107);  82 have recovered.

Fall semester update

In moving up the decision date for Fall re-opening from July 1 to June 19, the AC was not quite ready with full descriptions of how we would be conducting activities on campus, although the analysis and planning was complete.  Those descriptions will be provided this week: to faculty and staff tomorrow; and to students likely on Friday.  The student guidance will include the affirmation students will need to complete and sign in order to return for in-person classes.


God of truth and justice, give us wisdom as we navigate the facts of life.  Guide us in understanding as we look within ourselves.  Lead us in mercy as we endeavor to love. In Jesus Name, Amen.

We will get through this,
Lyle Roelofs, President
