With safe and effective vaccines readily available, West Virginia University, including all Health Sciences campuses, will fully reopen this fall.
WVU strongly encourages students, faculty and staff to be vaccinated to help provide community immunity. Students, faculty and staff must verify their vaccine status by Aug. 1. An incentive program is available for those who verify their vaccine.
Please keep in mind that WVU Medicine requires face coverings for patients and healthcare workers in all hospital and clinic areas. All patients and individuals who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are required to wear face coverings upon entering the WVU Health Sciences Center.
Not ready to go unmasked? No problem. Those who are fully vaccinated and would like to continue wearing a mask for additional protection are encouraged to do so.
With or without a mask, we can’t wait to see everyone back on campus this fall semester.
