In the Low Risk category of our Phased Return to Campus Plan, services will continue with in-person operations. In addition to the resources found on this website, employees are encouraged to visit the COVID-19 Employee Resources Intranet site for important updates. You will need to log in to access this information.
Effective March 14, Western will no longer require face masks in our buildings. We will, however, continue to respect the masking choices of others. The CDC advises individuals to wear a mask based on your personal preference, informed by your personal level of risk.
We recognize that getting vaccinated is the best defense against the spread of COVID-19. While the vaccination is not required at Western, we strongly encourage all students and co-workers who are able to be vaccinated to do so.
For more information on where to get vaccinated, visit the La Crosse County website or the website of your county of residence.
Western values the health and safety of our employees, and is committed to supporting you in this changing environment. Find out how to protect yourself from COVID-19.
