Kentucky’s John Calipari urges everyone to wear KN95 masks for two weeks ‘so we can get through this’
By ADAM ZAGORIA
In a new video, Kentucky coach John Calipari urges everyone to wear a KN95 mask for “two weeks” so we “can get through this” Omicron variant of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I don’t want to wear it…but for two weeks I’ve got to keep these kids safe,” he said. “They’ve got to mitigate, wear that mask…
“I would suggest to all of you for the next two weeks, if you can get your hands on a KN95, switch out and wear this mask for two weeks so we can get by this.”
Calipari added that “91 percent” of students, staff and faculty at Kentucky are vaccinated “without a mandate.”
