Louisville Universities Announce COVID-19 Policies Ahead Of School Year

By |2021-07-27T18:23:37-04:00July 27th, 2021|COVID-19|

Louisville’s colleges and universities are releasing their COVID-19 policies ahead of the upcoming academic year. Here’s a look at what various schools around the region are doing. What Are U of L’s COVID Protocols? The University of Louisville announced Monday it will continue its required COVID-19 testing program for fall 2021. Testing will be required for any students, staff and faculty that are not vaccinated. The testing requirement also includes those awaiting a second dose. The school will hold required testing periods throughout the first semester–Aug. 17-27, Sept. 7-17 and Oct. 6-15. Bluewater Diagnostic Laboratory will provide the testing. The University of Louisville has not announced any vaccine requirements for their students, faculty or staff.  What Are Bellarmine’s COVID Protocols? Bellarmine University will require testing for non-vaccinated residential students. Those students will be tested on move-in day.  Students will receive their results back the same day; so-called “gateway testing” aims to stop any early spread of COVID-19. Vaccines will also be available to students that day.  Both U of L and Bellarmine are requiring unvaccinated campus community members to wear masks and letting vaccinated people decide for themselves.   What About Other Schools? Spalding University has similar policies: no requirement for vaccination, but a mandate to wear a mask if you aren’t.  Spalding’s policy features the use of the #ClearCampus app. #ClearCampus is a daily self screening app for COVID-19 symptoms. The university asks anyone–staff, student, faculty or visitor–with plans to come to campus to pass the health screening for that day. Jefferson Community and Technical College does not have many policies in place, but does plan to offer students a variety of learning options, including fully-online, in-person and hybrid classes.  All the colleges and universities have said current policies and plans are subject to change based on CDC guidelines and COVID-19 numbers

COVID-19, staffing shortages creating challenges at Louisville Metro Corrections

By |2021-07-27T17:23:04-04:00July 27th, 2021|COVID-19|

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The inmate population is beginning to creep up again in Louisville's jail after more than a year of declining numbers due to COVID-19. The jail population reached its lowest ever average population in 2020 with 1,250 inmate. But the number is climbing once again, and corrections officers worry there isn't enough staff to deal with the increase.On Tuesday, jail officials told the jail policy committee that the average population of inmates in July was over 1,600, an increase from earlier in the year. "It is absolutely not safe right now for our members," said Louisville Corrections FOP Lodge 77 president Daniel Johnson. "There's a natural danger to our jobs to begin with, but depending on the environment and the decisions being made, you can either make that better or worse."According to Assistant Director of Corrections Steve Durham, three officers were injured over the weekend. Durham said the first incident happened around 11:30 p.m. Friday, when a corrections officer's hand was injured from a "disruptive inmate."  Around 1:45 a.m. Saturday, the same inmate injured another correction's officer's hand. Durham said the inmate was placed under mental health observation. Both officers were treated and released for their injuries. The inmate was also treated for minor injuries at the jail. Then around 5 a.m. Saturday, a "special management inmate" threw bodily fluids on an officer. "As recommended by LMDC practice regarding exposure to bodily fluids, that officer also sought medical treatment," Durham said. Johnson said the combination of COVID-19 and low-pay is leading to a steady stream of officers leaving the jail to pursue other opportunities."You got to pay people more money than they can make on unemployment to take the risk to come work in a facility like the jail," he said. "Because we don't have enough staff, we are working people 70+ hours a week. You know you might have five minutes notice before the end of your shift that you're on another shift."Johnson said the union is working to revise a contract with Louisville Metro Government that expires in 2023. Currently, he said , starting pay for a Metro Corrections officer is $17 an hour.Meanwhile, jail leaders said they're also working on ways to get more recruits in the door and keep the officers already on board. "We're working on some initiatives that we think will help draw more people into the door to make those applications," Durham said. "We're bending and doing out best to get people to come to work and keep good people on the job."Copyright 2021 WDRB Media. All Rights Reserved.

Louisville football: Cards to enhance tailgating experience in 2021

By |2021-07-27T14:21:50-04:00July 27th, 2021|COVID-19|

Louisville football announced plans to create a unique fan tailgating experience for the 2021 season and beyond. Although COVID-19 delayed plans for Louisville football in 2020, the Cardinals are a full-go for an enhanced tailgating experience in 2021. “The Alley, which is scheduled to open for the Sept. 11 home opener versus Eastern Kentucky, sits on approximately one acre on the corner of Boxley and South Floyd,” Louisville football said in a press release on Tuesday. “The property will feature an expansive courtyard with the ability to accommodate a couple (of) thousand fans, turf greens for yard games, live entertainment, numerous drink options and food trucks.  “We are fans too,” Director of Athletics Vince Tyra said. “We know that the game-day experience goes far beyond the actual game. (We) want to help create destinations and foster more traditions for our fans. The Alley is just one more example. I’m so thankful to our friends at Buffalo Construction, Inc. are as committed to our success as we are.” Free and open to all fans, The Alley will open four hours prior to kickoff and will close approximately 30 minutes prior to the start of the game encouraging fans to be inside the stadium prior to kickoff.The facility will be open for one hour after the game as well.” Louisville football says that The Alley will cost approximately $850,000 for construction. The Alley will be located at Boxley and Floyd Street, on the east side of Cardinal Stadium. The original Cardinal Alley “Tailg8rs” was founded in 2006 by current Louisville AD, Vince Tyra. A new way to honor Cardinal greats In addition to the new tailgating zone, Louisville football will now have a new way to honor Cardinal greats on game day. If you have visited Cardinal Stadium recently, you know the retired jerseys that hang on the east end of the stadium have become faded and worn. With the new expansion and painting of old seats, the worn jerseys stand out like a sore thumb. That is why Louisville has decided to add a new ribbon board to the section above the PNC Suites. “A new look to celebrate Honored Jerseys will be a significant improvement to Cardinal Stadium over the season,” the university said. “A 400-foot LED Board will be installed on the East side of the side stadium and will highlight UofL’s 23 honorees and its bowl appearances. The department plans to have it fully installed by the Oct. 9 game versus Virginia.” NEW: How a feature may signify Jack Harlow’s staying power

Louisville Officials Hear From Residents On How To Spend COVID Funds

By |2021-07-27T07:24:12-04:00July 27th, 2021|COVID-19|

Louisville officials have received hundreds of suggestions for how to spend new federal coronavirus relief, from building new affordable housing to expanding access to broadband internet. Louisville expects to get about $388 million over the next two years as part of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) passed by Congress in March. More than 1,700 people have given feedback through two different online surveys on the city’s website since early June. Dozens more attended a series of in-person meetings hosted by Metro Council’s Budget Committee. The final meeting happened Monday night at the West Broadway Church of Christ. What will the city use the COVID relief money for? Reverend David Snardon of Joshua Tabernacle Baptist Church was one of the Louisville residents in attendance. Snardon told council members that he sees access to mental healthcare as the city’s biggest challenge. “The need for mental health should be of the utmost priority, not just for those experiencing homelessness but also for those that are dealing with the violence plaguing our city,” he said. “In fact, addressing mental health should be built into the fabric of this city in light of the communal trauma we all face, either directly or indirectly, from COVID.” Other residents spoke about the need to end childhood poverty, treatment for sickle cell anemia and reparations for the city’s Black residents. Council Member Bill Hollander (D-9), who chairs the Budget Committee, attended all three public feedback sessions. He said one of the most talked-about issues has been homelessness in Louisville. “I think that’s reflective of what people are seeing in our streets,” Hollander said. “We’ve heard a lot about affordable housing in general. We’ve heard a lot about economic opportunity. We’ve heard some about public safety.” Metro Council’s online survey soliciting public feedback will remain open until the end of July. In addition to public meetings and surveys, Mayor Greg Fischer also created the Louisville Accelerator Team. It is working with city agencies, Metro Council and other community-based organizations to set priorities for the ARPA funding.  Fischer tapped Margaret Handmaker, who heads the consultancy firm Ellico, to lead the Accelerator Team. Handmaker said they’ve put together a short list of broad categories for ARPA spending based on what they’ve heard from the public. They include: Homelessness and affordable housing Economic opportunity and broadband  Healthy neighborhoods Public safety  Youth development and education Arts, culture and tourism Environmental justice “We’ll also be looking at impact,” Handmaker said. “How long does it take to implement? How long does it take to get results? How much ongoing money is needed?” Handmaker recently told Metro Council that the city has already received more than a billion dollars worth of project proposals from various individuals and organizations that want to utilize ARPA funding. What will the city do with all of this feedback? Louisville Metro Council and the Fischer administration are expected to start meeting in August to whittle down the list of priority areas. Council President David James has appointed Hollander and Budget Committee Vice Chair Kevin Kramer (R-11) to negotiate on the body’s behalf. City officials plan to issue requests for proposals from individuals and organizations that want to use the ARPA money. Winning proposals will be based on which projects can best tackle the issues lawmakers and residents have identified. The new federal funding also comes with strict guidelines from the federal government on what the money can be used for.  Local governments are prohibited from cutting taxes and then using the ARPA funding to fill the gap. They are also prohibited from using the money on general infrastructure like roads and bridges. In a presentation to Metro Council, Colin Higgins with the Nowak Metro Finance Lab at Drexel University stressed that the funding must go to projects directly related to the COVID-19 pandemic and its negative impacts on the economy. “The crucial element here is that general economic development and workforce development programs are not permitted uses of these funds,” Higgins said. “However, if you were to target a job training program at workers who are unemployed as a result of COVID, that is permitted because it’s tied specifically to an impact caused by the pandemic.” Higgins said the guidance from the U.S. Treasury Department so far has indicated that low-income residents can be assumed to have been negatively impacted by the pandemic. That means programs targeting homelessness will be permitted, and low-income residents won’t have to submit documentation explaining how the pandemic impacted them. While the rules seem to eliminate the possibility of using ARPA funding to build new affordable housing, there is an exemption for so-called “qualified census tracts.” These are areas with a concentration of low-income residents or residents living in poverty.  In the Louisville metro area, qualified census tracts are mostly concentrated in the West End and some areas in the southwest, such as Shively and Iroquois. The federal government has said ARPA funding can be used in those areas to cover equity-focused investments like childcare, affordable housing and lead paint remediation. Because ARPA funding is being distributed over a two-year period, only about $190 million will be available this year. Metro Government already spent nearly $20 million of that on continued vaccination outreach, contact tracing and eviction diversion and prevention. Officials are hoping to start distributing the federal coronavirus funding sometime in the fall.

Louisville native Jamon Brown retires from football, helping build empowerment center

By |2021-07-26T20:20:33-04:00July 26th, 2021|Breonna Taylor, COVID-19, David McAtee|

The UofL grad and six-year NFL veteran said he wants to focus on helping his community. LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Jamon Brown sat back in a stool at the SuperChefs bar and thought for a moment. The former University of Louisville standout considered what he would tell a younger version of himself after 62 NFL games over six seasons. "No one man is an island," Brown said. "So you must draw your strength from others." The 28-year-old carries that quote from a former offensive line coach as he enters retirement from football. Brown said he started thinking about this decision after the Atlanta Falcons released him last August.   The offensive lineman was drafted by the then St. Louis Rams in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft, later playing for the New York Giants, Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles. He finished his sixth and final year in the NFL with Philadelphia, who released him from their practice squad following a violation of team rules in December 2020. Then in January, he had a second child, further pushing him to hang up his cleats. "When you're in the league, you never know when that time is going to come," Brown said. "Football is time-consuming. And I was in the space of how do you want to go about the next year?" The answer to that comes off of the field. The West End native was very involved in protests surrounding the police killings of Breonna Taylor and David McAtee, which further sparked his desire to help the community more. He has also participated in a conference call with Louisville's FBI field office and spoken with Taylor's mother Tamika Palmer. All of this started to weigh on him during his last NFL season. "That's when I kind of shifted my focus," Brown said. "I was focusing on football and of course focusing on the preparation. But our city had been hit with some tragedy, man. So I was trying to figure out, like always, how do I help? That really kind of woke me up and I marched into a new mindset: bringing light, opportunity and change in ways that we need it." It's been a goal of the Fern Creek High School alumnus ever since becoming a pro. He's spearheaded the Jamon Brown Foundation, which aims "to impact the lives of those struggling with poverty, violence, and youth homelessness, to improve upon the education and healthy living issues that are typically prevalent in at-risk areas, while influencing others to do the same." Most recently, Brown received ESPN Louisville’s ESPY Humanitarian Hometown Hero award for his work in the community last year. He's worked with the Coalition for the Homeless, started a fundraiser for those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and more. "Football was my legacy," Brown said. "But it's not anything that I can pass to my son or anything anyone else could really grab ahold of and use for their benefit. That's where the opportunity to shift out of that and then leave significance for other people's lives became more interesting to me." Be the change you can see!! https://t.co/G7m6HzVZn0— Jamon Brown (@JB_The_GREAT_68) June 30, 2020 His next step in doing that is opening what he calls an empowerment center in the West End. Brown's foundation is partnering with Russell: A Place of Promise and Cities United to build the facility that will feature educational, recreational and professional resources for those in need. "There's a lot of tradition that goes on down there," Brown said. "The things that really trigger me about that is the lack of light. When I look in that neighborhood, there's not a movie theater. There's not a skating rink. There's not different luxuries that you see in other parts of the community." Brown grew up on 39th Street with his mother and two siblings. While walking down the street and showing it to WHAS11, many memories rush back to his mind: being chased by dogs through a couple of alleys, needing to print Dragon Ball Z pictures off at the nearby Shawnee Library because he didn't have a color printer and throwing lackluster progress reports in a neighbor's yard them to hide from his family. "I don't know mom, I didn't get mine," Brown recalled with a laugh. "My brother got his, my sister got hers. But for some reason, our class didn't get ours." When Brown visited with WHAS11, he was stopped by a man asking who he was. After explaining his transition from the NFL to retirement, Brown was asked for help. "It ain't just because of who you are, it's where you're from," the man said. "You know how it is." Brown understood, giving the man his phone number. He said he wants more people to come and take that walk around his neighborhood to see what he sees: people who take pride in their home and what needs to be done to help them. "There is friendliness, there is camaraderie," Brown said. "But the necessities that are really needed to help the community flourish are what's lacking." It brings him back to that quote sticking in his head: "No one man is an island. So you must draw your strength from others." As he enters this next phase of his life, Brown is acting to demonstrate what it means.  "Build the team that you have now," Brown said. "And that's what I have. That's what helped me feel confident in transitioning and walking away from football." WHAS11 will have more on Brown's story at 11 p.m. RELATED: A scoop of love, a sprinkle of kindness: Local company, NFL player Jamon Brown tackle community needs in West Louisville RELATED: UofL baseball's Henry Davis makes history; becomes school's first No. 1 overall pick in MLB Draft [embedded content] ►Make it easy to keep up-to-date with more stories like this.

BOZICH | Vegas lists Louisville as underdog in 3 key home football games

By |2021-07-26T20:20:34-04:00July 26th, 2021|COVID-19|

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It never hurts to have a guy in Las Vegas, right? And I’m not talking about Penn or Teller. I’m talking about somebody who follows the numbers at the Las Vegas sports books.Brian Edwards, a senior handicapper at VegasInsider.com, often shares updated point spreads with me. On Monday, he sent me the current lines from The Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas for nine college football games this season.It’s as simple as that. Here are the numbers, and a few thoughts on the games:Kentucky (-1.5) at Louisville, Nov. 27: The Governor’s Cup rivalry was interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic when the programs did not play last season. The Wildcats have won the last two by a combined margin of 78 points. Kentucky plays host to lowly New Mexico State the Saturday before the Wildcats visit Lexington while the Cards play at Duke.Central Florida (-3) at Louisville, Sept. 17: This is definitely one of the swing games on the Cardinals’ schedule in front of what should be an amped Friday night crowd. UCF went 6-4 last season, but former Auburn coach Gus Malzahn arrived to replace Josh Heupel, who left for Tennessee. The Knights return 17 starters. Phil Steele picked UCF to finish second in the American Athletic Conference.Clemson (-20) at Louisville, Nov. 6: The Cards have yet to beat Clemson during their seven seasons in the Atlantic Coast Conference, but beating the Tigers hasn’t simply been a problem for U of L. The teams did not play last season, but Clemson’s last three wins in the series have been by 26 or more points.Missouri (+5) at Kentucky, Sept. 11: The preseason magazines are split on which team is more likely to finish third in the East Division of the Southeastern Conference behind Georgia and Florida. The Tigers won by 10 last season in Columbia, ending a five-game winning streak in the series by the Wildcats. Mizzou quarterback Connor Bazelak is a rising star.Florida (-6.5) at Kentucky, Oct. 2: After ending its long losing streak to the Gators in 2018, Kentucky has lost back-to-back games to Dan Mullen’s team, including a 34-10 stumble in Gainesville last season. Florida lost a dozen starters, including quarterback Kyle Trask, and is considered a notch below Georgi in the East again.Cincinnati (-1) at Indiana, Sept. 18: Word around Bloomington is this game has approached sell-out status as it figures to be a matchup between top-25 teams. The Bearcats are the class of the AAC and are led by quarterback Desmond Ridder, a product of St. Xavier High School.Ohio State (-10) at Indiana, Oct. 23: The Hoosiers have not defeated the Buckeyes since 1988. Although quarterback Justin Fields has moved into his role of rescuing the Chicago Bears, the Buckeyes are still the gold standard in the Big Ten, a program that expects to return to the national playoff this season with a new 5-star quarterback, likely C.J. Stroud. Indiana head coach Tom Allen, left, greets Penn State head coach James Franklin following their NCAA college football game in State College, Pa., on Saturday, Nov. 16, 2019. Penn State won 34-27. (AP Photo/Barry Reeger) Indiana (+3) at Michigan, Nov. 6: The Hoosiers ended a similar long losing streak to the Wolverines last season with a dominant, 38-21 victory in Bloomington. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh took a pay cut but returned for his seventh season. I doubt any Michigan football coach could survive back-to-back losses to the Hoosiers.Indiana (-4) at Purdue, Nov. 27: The Old Oaken Bucket game was also scratched because of COVID19-, leaving Purdue with a 2-4 record and IU at 5-2 before its bowl loss to Ole Miss. In recent years, this game has decided a bowl bid for one or even both programs. Purdue coach Jeff Brohm is 2-1 against Indiana.Copyright 2021 WDRB Media. All Rights Reserved.

Louisville doctor worried about impact of Delta variant

By |2021-07-26T18:22:55-04:00July 26th, 2021|COVID-19|

LOUISIVLLE, KY (WAVE) - With the Delta variant pushing COVID numbers back up, doctors are once again urging people to get vaccinated. Sixty percent of the adult U.S. population has been fully vaccinated, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Millions have still not received the vaccine, leaving the nation vulnerable to the fast-spreading Delta variant of the virus.Medical experts say you should think about the Delta variant as the 2020 version of COVID-19 on steroids, that’s how serious it is. This variant is in all 50 states.The first case in the United States was identified in March, and by early July, it made up more than half of cases tested in the country. It now makes up 83% of US cases, according to the CDC. The Delta variant is spreading about 55% faster than the alpha strain that was first identified in the United Kingdom late last year, according to the World Health Organization – and that strain spreads about 50% faster than the version that first began infecting people in late 2019. Dr. Mark Burns from UofL Health says they are seeing more people being admitted to the hospital with COVID. Those patients are sicker, younger and over 90% of them are unvaccinated.(Source: WAVE 3 News)Dr. Mark Burns from UofL Health says they are seeing more people being admitted to the hospital with COVID, they are sicker, and younger and over 90% of them are unvaccinated. “For the people that are unvaccinated unfortunately things haven’t changed for them since day one,” Dr. Burns said. “This virus is extremely more contagious and more deadly. If you think about what we had before this which was the B117 which is out of UK which is now known as the Alpha virus. That was much more contagious and easily spread than the original wild type virus that was here. You can see a pattern.”That pattern isn’t good since vaccinations have slowed down. What’s extremely concerning according to Burns is that if this virus continues to mutate, there is a possibility they can mutate their way around the protection of the vaccine. Burns says that will be very bad for all of us. Burns says if enough people get vaccinated, this virus won’t have a place to replicate. Louisville Metro Public Health and Wellness says antibody response lasts about 8 months. Covid vaccine antibody response lasts at least 1 year, likely two plus.

Are face masks back in Louisville?

By |2021-07-26T16:22:20-04:00July 26th, 2021|COVID-19|

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Two months after the CDC announced vaccinated people don’t have to wear a mask, many in Louisville are putting theirs back on, WAVE 3 News observed.Linda Fischer told WAVE 3 News after she received the COVID-19 vaccine, she stopped wearing masks, but now that’s changed.“Because of that variant, the Delta variant, I’m just hesitant again,” Fischer said. “There’s too many people unvaccinated, and I don’t know if they keep getting it how much worse this variant will get, and if it’ll affect me.”Another Louisville resident, Cathy Abbott, has never stopped wearing her mask.“I have a husband that’s had a stroke, and I have COPD,” Abbott said. “We’ve been vaccinated, but I’m a retired nurse and I want to be safe. Getting sick with it, since I’m already compromised is a death sentence.”Both Fischer and Abbott wore their masks voluntarily on Monday, but if case numbers continue to rise they might not have the choice in the future.On Sunday, Dr. Anthony Fauci said the CDC is actively considering recommending another mask mandate, even for fully vaccinated people. Other groups and municipalities are considering the same. Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear recently told reporters during a Team Kentucky press conference he won’t rule out future COVID-19 mandates. In addition, on Friday, the Catholic Diocese of Lexington advised its priests that it would be “very appropriate to consider requiring masks at mass again.”In preparation for the upcoming school year, Jefferson County Public Schools will soon consider what mask rules, if any, the district will put in place for students and staff this Fall.“My sense is that we’re headed toward a universal mask mandate,” board member Chris Kolb said. “That’s certainly what I’m in favor of, it’s what the CDC says we need to be doing, and the state guidance as well.”The Jefferson County Board of Education will vote on a masking measure Tuesday.Get the WAVE 3 News app on ROKU, Apple TV and Amazon Fire.(WAVE 3 News)Copyright 2021 WAVE 3 News.
