WCSU Returns to Normal, Reopening Information and Covid-19 Updates

WCSU Reopening

Updated: 06/04/21

To WCSU students, faculty and staff:

We have been meeting regularly with the Board of Regents for the Connecticut State University and Colleges system, as well as representatives from the state Department of Public Health for guidance on our COVID-19 planning efforts as we move into the summer.

Based on that guidance, our procedures on campus will be designed to be as protective as possible. We will also evaluate our plans every month and, by the beginning of the fall semester, we hope to be able to operate as close to pre-Covid “normal” as possible.

Staff, faculty and students who visit or work on campus during the month of June are asked to observe these rules:

INDOORS

  • Maintain six feet of social distancing and wear masks in all indoor public spaces regardless of personal vaccination status.
  • For employees, masks must be worn at all times EXCEPT in your office or cubicle. Masks should always be on hand and worn whenever walking in and out of buildings, moving around common areas, and to and from your workstations.
  • Masks must be worn at all times by employees who work in open office spaces or areas open to the public unless they are able to maintain six feet of physical distance from others.
  • In small meetings or joint offices, employees who are all fully vaccinated can agree, by mutual consent, that wearing masks is optional in those spaces/times.
  • For summer classes, classrooms will require the wearing of masks and six feet of physical distance to the greatest extent possible.

OUTDOORS

  • In groups of 25 or fewer, masks are optional for vaccinated individuals and highly recommended for those who are unvaccinated.
  • In groups of more than 25 people but fewer than 100, masks are recommended for vaccinated individuals and required for those who are not fully vaccinated.
  • More than 100 people, masks are required for everyone.

Employees and students who do not feel well should stay home and seek medical attention. Student who test positive for the virus should notify WCSU Health Services. Employees should notify the Human Resources Department.

We look forward to once again working together in person on behalf of our students. Thank you and have a great summer!

Sincerely,

Dr. John B. Clark
President

Health & Safety Guidelines

We have developed guidelines to help us all protect each other. You will see reminders on posters throughout the campuses with notes about safe practices, including maintaining a six-foot distance from others, and wearing a face covering inside and outside of buildings.
