As part of the campus-wide Every Wildcat a Wellcat campaign, the university will provide every Kansas State student with a kit filled with items to help them slow the spread of COVID-19 locally.
Each kit includes one neck-gaiter style face-covering, a first-aid kit, hand sanitizer, a thermometer and a no-contact opener key for pushing doors open and using ATMs.
Additionally, the university has ordered about 20,000 cloth face coverings that will be distributed to students at a later date.
Students living on-campus will receive kits in their residence halls.
Jennifer Miller, director for health promotions at Lafene Health Center, said off-campus students have a few options to pick their kits up.
Students affiliated with Greek Life or K-State Athletics will receive their kits by representatives in those organizations.
Other students can pick theirs up at various points on campus during the first week of class between 9 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Those locations are as follows:
- Monday at Coffman Commons (near Hale Library),
- Tuesday at Bosco Plaza (in front of the K-State Student Union),
- Wednesday at Bluemont Hall,
- Thursday on the Quad.
A drive-thru option is also available at Lafene Health Center, located at 1105 Sunset Ave. That will be available from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. People will be running a distribution point in the circle drive in front of the building.
