The University of Wisconsin–Madison will welcome students back to campus as scheduled for the start of fall classes on September 2. To ensure a “Smart Restart” amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we are developing a comprehensive plan for resuming campus activities. Learn more here.
If you develop any symptoms or feel ill, please stay home for the safety of others. Members of the campus community will be expected to monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID-19 daily on the COVID Symptom Tracker and, if symptoms exist, immediately get tested at no-cost at a campus COVID-19 testing site, and then quarantine.
We encourage you to take care of your own health by following the CDC’s guidance on: hand washing, covering your cough, avoiding touching your face, avoiding close contact, and staying home if you are sick. See the overview on the public health protocols handout.
As a reminder, viruses do not discriminate, and this outbreak is not specific to any ethnicity or race. Racist behaviors or stereotyping is unacceptable at SoP. If you experience harassment or discrimination, students are encouraged to file a bias incident report. Employees may file a complaint with the Office of Compliance.
