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.
UW–Madison students who travel or attend a gathering with people they don't live with over Thanksgiving recess are encouraged to get tested for COVID-19 before resuming in-person campus activities.
With COVID-19 cases rising locally and nationally, UW–Madison employees should be aware of the most recent public health guidance to avoid holiday gatherings.
Hundreds of UW Health workers call on the people of Wisconsin to take precautions against COVID-19 to avoid overwhelming hospitals.
In the spring of 2020, when UW–Madison instruction moved online and most research became remote, efforts picked up at the UW Carbone Cancer Center Translational Science Biocore BioBank.
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.
