In solidarity with that action, University of Kentucky buildings will also be lit green.
Lights on 21 of UK’s buildings will burn green from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m. each night for four nights in remembrance of the people who have died from the coronavirus in Kentucky.
The buildings are:
Gatton College of Business and Economics
