As of March 12, 2022, masks are not required on UW-Eau Claire campuses. Please be respectful of an individual’s choice to wear or not wear a mask.
UWEC provides free disposable masks at entryways of most campus buildings. Learn more on how to properly wear a mask from two UW-Eau Claire graduate assistants in this short video.
KN95 or N95 masks are available to all students and employees. Masks can be picked up at the ASK Center (Schofield Hall 230), Monday through Friday between 8 am and 4:30 pm. Masks will also be available at the Barron campus.
Voluntary fit testing can be requested by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. These fit tests can be scheduled Tuesdays through Thursdays and take about 10-15 minutes.
N95/KN95 masks that are provided VOLUNTARILY, can do so without providing the training program. We do recommend clicking here for additional information to consider when using a N95/KN95 respirator.
Staff and faculty that are REQUIRED to wear these types of respirators must complete a training program and other regulatory requirements, see policy.
According to CDC, it is advised to choose a mask that does NOT have exhalation valves or vents.
