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 part of our Smart Restart reopening plan, UW–Madison has developed protocols for what to do when individuals working, living or learning on campus test positive for COVID-19.
Vice Chancellor Reesor shares important information and resources with students as they prepare to start the fall semester.
Due to public health concerns related to COVID-19, all university-sponsored travel outside of Wisconsin or by air within the state remains cancelled until further notice. These restrictions are in place for all employees, students and registered student organizations (RSOs).
That site will be open for non-motorized-vehicle arrivals beginning on August 6 and for non-motorized-vehicle and vehicle arrivals ("drive-up") testing on August 11.
We remain committed to providing our students the support needed to be safe, healthy, and successful.
