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.
The Wisconsin Partnership Program has announced 14 awards totaling $2.7 million to community organizations and researchers to address the impact of the pandemic.
UW–Madison students and employees will have a new, enhanced way to schedule COVID-19 tests and other appointments, view their lab results, and more: the MyUHS app from University Health Services. The Safer Badgers app will be discontinued.
As residence halls prepare to welcome back students, survey finds more than 92% plan to be vaccinated
“We’re pleased to see so many students choosing vaccination, which is the most effective way to prevent COVID-19,” says Jeff Novak, director of University Housing. “Having a highly vaccinated community helps protect everyone, including those who cannot be vaccinated.”
“Luckily, our vaccines ... have been shown to be effective even against this delta variant, so we continue to have protection when we are getting vaccinated,” Devlin Cole says. “But we do now have even more increased risk of getting very, very sick if we’re not vaccinated.”
We remain committed to providing our students the support needed to be safe, healthy, and successful.

Our instructors remain committed to effective teaching. Resources, strategies and tools are available to guide instructors in working with alternative modes of course delivery.
Research is being restarted, with a focus on expanding on-site research and scholarly activities while minimizing the risk of transmission of COVID-19 to our students, staff, faculty, and the larger Madison community.
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.
