LEXINGTON, Ky. (WYMT)- The University of Kentucky is now under a hiring freeze because of COVID-19.

University President Eli Capilouto says this freeze begins "immediately".

This includes staff, administrative, full-time, and part-time positions.

Dr. Capilouto says it does not apply to student employment and U.K. Healthcare is still able to hire employees.

Anyone else will have to apply for an exemption.
