A Special Message from the Student Health Center:

Testing for COVID-19 previously has been limited to the most severe cases.  As a result, the Student Health Center has only been able to perform alternative testing for students to rule out other viruses and the flu.

In an effort to broaden screening, the Whatcom County Health Department has lifted restrictions on who can be tested for COVID-19.  In addition, commercial testing is also becoming widely available.

Dear Campus Community,

As we look ahead to Finals Week and Spring Break, I’d like to encourage all members of our community to think carefully about travel.

If you have plans for international travel, it’s important to be aware of any CDC travel advisories that may apply. Faculty and staff may wish to use Western’s Travel Registry  as part of their travel preparation.

Dear Campus Community,

The Incident Command System team at Western has established three goals for all of our preparation and response to COVID-19:  to protect life safety and minimize the spread of the coronavirus illness, to maintain – as much as possible – the continuity of Western’s operations, and to communicate with our communities as fully as possible. That’s the framework that governs the planning and decisions we are making for Western.
