COVID-19 Health and Safety
WashU is taking significant measures to protect the community from COVID-19. Visit WashU Together for more information on WashU’s COVID-19 response. The University will continue to monitor conditions closely and make any necessary adjustments to protect our community.
As a condition of employment, enrollment, and/or access to Washington University and affiliated facilities, all University employees, students, and trainees must be immunized by vaccination against COVID-19 unless granted a medical or religious exemption from the University.
Effective March 14th, 2022, masking will be optional for all Danforth Campus spaces. You should keep the following in mind regarding masking:
-Don’t question someone or make assumptions about them because of their choice to wear or not wear a mask. Some may choose to wear a mask, say no to a social engagement, or otherwise exercise more caution than others.
-If a classmate, staff member, or instructor asks you to wear a mask, please consider doing so to be supportive, even if the rules don’t require it. Keep in mind they may be at a higher risk, caring for others at a higher risk, or feeling less comfortable in a mask-optional environment.
-For those who are concerned about learning in a mask-optional environment, there are a few things to keep in mind:
a. You may continue to wear a mask if you choose. One-way masking does still offer a substantial protection to the wearer.
b. The University will continue to monitor conditions and reinstate mitigation measures as necessary.
We will provide testing for all students, who develop symptoms of COVID-19 at any time (diagnostic testing), as well as broader testing as needed for exposures to prevent spread within our community.
At this time, the University has not determined whether pre-arrival testing will be required. If this testing is required, we will update this page with details as well as send an email communication to you.
Positive COVID-19 diagnosis:
If you test positive for COVID-19 during the program, you will be moved to a short-term isolation room located within the program residence hall. Parents/guardians will be contacted and you will need to be picked up within 24 hours of the positive test by your parent/guardian or an individual over the age of 21 designated by your parent/guardian. We will not have long-term isolation housing available for you. While in short-term isolation our staff will ensure that you receive meals and medical care, provided by the University.
