Self-Check Required Before Entering Campus

Effective January 10, 2021 (temporarily replaces Policy for Reporting Covid-19 Issues until in-person classes resume).

Students, faculty, and staff should NOT enter the building or appear on campus (except to go to an appointment at Health Services) if they:

  1. Have even one COVID symptom on the CDC list, including fever, headache, and cough.
  2. Have been in close contact with someone who has even one Covid symptom on the CDC list.
  3. Have traveled internationally or to a high-risk location domestically.
  4. Have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid.
  5. Are awaiting results of a Covid test.
  6. Have been told their Covid test is positive.

If any of the above apply, the student, faculty member, or staff member should not appear on campus again until cleared by Health Services.

Washburn University Health Services offers free, convenient saliva Covid testing. Results are usually available within 2-4 days. Call (785) 670-1470 Monday-Friday and get tested the same day.
