UW-Eau Claire’s Response to COVID-19

We are in close contact with the Eau Claire City-County Health Department, Barron County Health Department and other local entities regarding preparedness and response to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. Our goal is to assure that all our students, faculty and staff remain safe and healthy and that we continue to provide the high-quality education that defines UW-Eau Claire.

It's not too late to receive the COVID-19 vaccine

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently listed Eau Claire County as having high community transmission of COVID-19. According to local health officials, college-aged students are the lowest vaccinated group in Eau Claire County and across Wisconsin. By getting vaccinated, you are helping slow the spread of the new Delta variant and preventing the virus from continuing to mutate. 

If you have not received your COVID-19 vaccine, there is still time to do so. Help us keep each other safe. Find a COVID-19 vaccine near you.

Stop the Spread: Viruses don’t discriminate

We want to remind campus that while some around the world have attached racist tropes to COVID-19, science proves that viruses don’t discriminate. The Office of Multicultural Affairs and the Equity in Student Matters Commission created a downloadable flyer with helpful tips on how to stop the spread of the virus. If you are the target of bias incident, please submit a BIRT report at the link below.

As always, our priority is your safety and we want to help you navigate through this difficult time.

UWEC campus tours and visit information

We have resumed in-person visits with the health and safety of our visitors and campus community as our top priority. Per the CDC's guidelines, our group sizes will be small and all visitors are required to wear a mask. As safety guidelines allow, we will add additional in-person visits including academic program and special interest visits.
