Spring SAFELY Into The New Semester

As students, faculty and staff return to campus Monday, Jan. 10, West Virginia University has announced health protocols in response to the omicron variant.

WVU strongly urges everyone to be fully vaccinated and to get a COVID-19 booster, both are needed to be considered fully vaccinated. 

Those on the Health Sciences Campus involved in patient care, including residents, fellows and students may be required to follow separate WVU Health System or other clinical provider’s policies, including those related to COVID-19, such as masks, PPE and vaccinations.

Everyone, regardless of vaccination status, is required to wear a mask indoors in all WVU System buildings and facilities through at least Feb. 1, when public health conditions will be reevaluated.
