Physical distancing guidelines; vaccine town hall; upload documentation
Due to promising initial estimates of vaccination rates among Danforth Campus faculty, staff and students, we are now able to lift the physical distancing requirement for fully vaccinated individuals in most spaces on the Danforth Campus.
Summer guidance; Report your vaccination status; Understanding CDC guidelines
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.
Yellow alert level; Mask guidance; Congrats to grads
The Danforth Campus alert level has moved from orange to yellow, in response to improving conditions on campus and in the St. Louis region.
Vaccine for ages 12-15; masks still required; new testing hours
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.
Vaccine available; admitted student visits; walk-up testing
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.
Vaccine preregistration; walk-up testing; summer programs to open
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.
Outdoor events; containing the spread; how vaccines work
The Danforth Campus events and meetings protocol has been updated to allow a larger number of people to attend outdoor events.
Spring travel guidance; self-screening reminders; Gratitude Project
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.
Vaccine eligibility; Super Bowl safety; international travel update
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.
‘Ask the Doctors’ town hall; vaccine eligibility; track your symptoms
Two of the university’s top medical experts, Drs. Steve Lawrence, MD, and Cheri LeBlanc, MD, will answer your COVID-19 questions at a town hall tomorrow evening.
Vaccination updates; self-screening log-in; safety reminders
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.
Risk of eating indoors; check symptoms; Thanksgiving safety
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?
Orange alert; Share your story; Campus life
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.
Town hall tonight; In this together; Images of hope
Bring your health-related COVID-19 questions to tonight’s “Ask the Doctors” town hall. Drs. Steve Lawrence and Cheri LeBlanc will share the latest updates and guidance in this informative session.
