Weekly COVID-19 update

Reopening Operations Committee

In an ongoing effort to keep the community informed, the Reopening Operations Committee is committed to offering statewide, regional and campus public health updates to our community every Friday.

This week's update also includes recent topics discussed by the ROC, information about the new COVID-19 variant, the six-person limitation for event and social gatherings on campus, and more.

As we resume classes, please remember to adhere to the WU Well U Agreement. During the quiet period, campus remains closed to visitors, classes are remote and all employees are asked to work remotely unless otherwise approved by their supervisor.

Please read the full update. Thank you.
