Reporting on COVID-19 symptoms and exposure is essential to the overall health and safety of our campus community. As stated in the Knight’s Pledge, you must self-report your status if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19  or have been exposed to COVID-19 through close contact.

If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or if you have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 submit a self-report to WPU.

In addition to reporting, students, faculty, staff and On-Campus partners who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or have been exposed through close contact should:

  1. Follow the recommendations of your medical provider. Those that need to be seen by a medical professional should either see a family physician of their choice, or seek out another health care provider (urgent care or emergency room). The person should remain isolated until they go to their appointment and are advised to wear a mask when traveling to their appointments. The person should not re-engage in contact with other community members unless cleared by a medical professional or after following the guidelines offered by the local health department, state health agency, and/or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Failure to comply with stated policies will result in referral to Code of Conduct for students and possible disciplinary action for employees endangering the health and safety of the campus community.
    1. You must self-quarantine for 2 weeks If you have had prolonged contact of 15 or more minutes, in close proximity of 6 feet or less, with someone who has a confirmed case of COVID-19.
  2. Students who live on campus should notify the Residence Life Coordinator, Campus Safety, and/or the Dean of Students. Students who live off campus should contact Campus Safety and/or the Dean of Students. Faculty, Staff and On-Campus Partners should notify their immediate supervisor, Campus Safety and/or Human Resources.
