General information regarding COVID-19 and the University may be found at the University of Washington Novel Coronavirus & COVID-19 Facts and Resources page.  For more specific information, below is a list of links to resources.

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 14, 2021, masks or other face coverings are required indoors regardless of vaccination status when other people are present and in all public and common areas.

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.

See the UW face covering policy (opens PDF) for full information.

How to Verify your Vaccination Status:
UW requires students and personnel to either attest that they have been fully vaccinated, or declare an exemption. This includes students in fully online programs.

On Aug. 18, 2021, Gov. Inslee added higher education employees to those employees for whom being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 vaccination is required as a condition of employment, effective Oct. 18, 2021.
