University of Wisconsin-Whitewater

COVID-19 Information

The Emergency Operations Committee continues to monitor the status of COVID-19 and, in consultation with the Chancellor’s Cabinet and county and state health departments, will respond as necessary to keep our community safe and healthy.

UW-Whitewater encourages you to stay up-to-date on your vaccinations, wear a mask if you choose and stay healthy in general.

Here are updates and information related to operations for the Whitewater and Rock County campuses, effective May 24, 2022:

  • There is no university-wide campus mandate, however, clinical areas such as University Health and Counseling Services, Communication Sciences and Disorders clinic, and the Children’s Center may still require masking.
  • The COVID-19 hotline is no longer in service, and UW-Whitewater no longer requires students or employees to report if they test positive or are a close contact. 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.
  • COVID-19 testing and vaccination on UW-Whitewater campuses have ceased. If you are looking for testing or vaccination locations, please visit your local county health department’s webpage (see the resources below).
  • If you are a student who needs to be seen by a healthcare provider, you can call University Health and Counseling Services at 262-472-1300. If you are a staff or faculty member, please contact your primary care doctor.
