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.
School semester updates
Students should deal with a COVID infection as they would any other illness. Contact your instructor and work out with them how you can make up any classes you need to miss. We also know that some classes may need to go online briefly if the instructor must isolate or quarantine, so be sure to check your emails regularly for class updates.
Students and employees should:
- Not come to campus if they are ill.
- Get tested for COVID-19, even if you have been vaccinated, should you develop symptoms.
- Follow UWEC instructions on isolation or quarantine protocols.
If you have a disability that impacts your ability to attend in-person activities, or you have a specific concern related to health conditions, you may work with Services for Students with Disabilities office to explore possible accommodations; employees should contact Human Resources.
