The COVID Monitoring Team has approved updated public health guidance for summer on the Danforth Campus. The policies apply to screening, masking and physical distancing, as well as events, visitors and travel.
The Danforth Campus alert level has moved from orange to yellow, in response to improving conditions on campus and in the St. Louis region.
Following this week’s decision by the Centers for Disease Control and Food and Drug Administration to authorize use of the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine in adolescents 12 to 15 years old, the School of Medicine is now making it available to dependents of university faculty, staff, trainees and students.
COVID-19 vaccination appointments are now available through the university for all Washington University faculty and staff and their family members ages 18 and older.
We have created a survey for our faculty, staff, trainees and students to pre-register for future vaccination sites managed by the university. Those with a valid WUSTL Key are able to preregister for themselves, their spouses, and/or their dependents who are over the age of 16.
The Danforth Campus events and meetings protocol has been updated to allow a larger number of people to attend outdoor events.
Especially during these cold winter days, many of us are starting to turn our thoughts to spring. In a normal year, that would likely mean travel for many members of our community. Since this is not a normal year, there are a few important things to keep in mind when considering taking a trip.
If you have not received an invitation directly from BJC or another organization to sign up for an appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, this means you are not eligible at this time or that your appointment time is not yet available.
As the state of Missouri continues to work through its COVID-19 Vaccination Plan, we are keeping a close eye on developments and will communicate with the university community as new information becomes available.
COVID-19 cases are increasing significantly in the St. Louis region and on our campus. Did you know that eating with others is the main driver of this transmission in our campus community?
The university alert level is currently orange. The change from yellow is an indicator that while conditions on campus remain stable, regional trends are of concern, with an increasing number of cases and higher levels of community spread of COVID-19.
