COVID-19 Coronavirus Planning and Preparedness

With the ever-changing COVID-19 coronavirus situation, UW-Stout continues to evaluate the situation daily.

Masking 

All faculty, staff, and students are welcome to wear or not wear face coverings in a way that is most comfortable for them individually. Faculty, staff and students cannot mandate mask use. Mask wearing is an individual decision that must be respected. 

While our masking and testing expectations changed on March 11, 2022, the following COVID-19 resources remain available: 

  • N95/KN95 Masks: We will continue to provide N95 or KN95 masks to students and employees who request them. These masks may be requested by emailing covid19update@uwstout.edu. Masks will also continue to be required in Student Health Services.
  • Accommodations: Employees who believe the suspension of the mask requirement will result in a need to review accommodations are encouraged to discuss this with their supervisor and the Human Resources office. Students should contact the Disability Services Office with questions regarding the accommodation process.  

Summer COVID Updates

If you need information on what to do if you test positive or are exposed to someone positive, please visit the CDC quarantine/Isolation calculator. After you answer a series of questions, this calculator will describe your next steps.

If you are experiencing symptoms of Covid, there are a variety of resources for testing in the community:

  • A limited number of COVID-19 antigen home tests are available in the Dean of Students office, 130 Bowman Hall, this summer. If you are within the first 2 days of symptoms and you have a negative test, it is recommended that a home antigen test be repeated in 24 to 48 hours.
  • Schedule a test at Walgreens.com or CVS.com
  • If you are a student and need to see a health care provider, Student Health Services, operated by Prevea Health is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm. Call 7152321314 for an appointment.
  • Faculty or staff should consult their primary care doctor for COVID-related questions or health concerns.
