If you are sick with any potential illness, you must stay home, regardless of your vaccination status.

Update to Face Coverings Policy: As of August 2, 2021, masks or other face coverings are strongly recommended indoors regardless of vaccination status when other people are present and in all public and common areas. Face coverings are optional for individuals who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at UW campuses and facilities, with the following exceptions:

    • Individuals who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are required to wear a face covering indoors.
      • A person is fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the second dose in a 2-dose series (e.g., Pfizer or Moderna) or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine (e.g., Johnson & Johnson) of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or World Health Organization.
    • A face covering is required, regardless of vaccination status, in the following settings: health care settings, University shuttles, K-12 schools, childcare facilities, and day camps in locations where children are present or expected to be present.

How to Verify your Vaccination Status:
Students and employees are asked to either verify that they have been fully vaccinated, or declare a medical, religious or philosophical exemption:

A face covering is not required outdoors regardless of vaccination status. However, a face covering is encouraged for non-vaccinated individuals when in outdoor crowded settings and settings where there is a decreased ability to consistently maintain a physical distance between others.
