WWU Covid-19 safety protocols in effect for all visitors regardless of vaccination status

Do WWU: Wash your hands, Watch your distance, Use a mask.

A mask or other suitable face covering is required indoors when other people are present and in all public and common areas, such as lobbies, hallways, stairways, restrooms, elevators and shared vehicles. Masks are also encouraged in crowded, outdoor areas. To learn more about masks, such as what types of masks will offer you protection, view the CDC masking website.

If you are attending an in-person WWU event, check the event details for updates before attending. All event attendees will have to verify proof of vaccination or negative COVID test within 72 hours of the event. Respect the community and yourself by staying home if you feel sick. Some in-person events may have virtual attendance options. Stay healthy, stay safe, stay inspired!
