UW’s Response to COVID-19
With the well-being of all members of the university community our highest priority, we continue to closely monitor the coronavirus pandemic and act to reduce the risk to our students, faculty, and staff.
As expected, campus is seeing a rise in cases, which is likely to continue over the next couple of weeks. The precautions we are all taking on campus – such as getting vaccinated, masking indoors and staying home if sick – remain the appropriate response to protect yourself.
Our 90 percent campus vaccination rate and masking and testing requirements continue to protect our community, although we can expect to see additional positive cases as the more contagious delta variant moves through the broader community.
Research activities delayed or negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic are eligible to apply for the Pandemic-Affected Research Continuation Initiative.
As of Sept. 1, 88 percent of students are fully vaccinated and 91 percent of students have received at least one dose. In addition, 92 percent of employees are fully vaccinated.
All members of the UW–Madison community deserve to feel welcome, valued and safe. We do not tolerate harassment and discrimination, and racist behaviors and stereotyping are inconsistent with the values of UW–Madison. The Office of Compliance and Dean of Students Office provide resources and reporting options for students, faculty and staff.
