Dear Campus Community,

WWU Incident Command continues to monitor the increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases locally, regionally and nationally. Our top priority is keeping students, staff and faculty at WWU safe in the face of the surge of COVID-19 activity.

The start of the winter quarter will require continued diligence, including the testing of any students who will have a regular on-campus presence. This includes students living in campus housing, participating in face-to-face classes or working on campus. Testing will be held at Fraser Hall.

We have seen five new positive individual tests, and other positive tests among pooled testing batches.
