Davis, Morgan and Weber Counties move to High Transmission Level
- As of Oct. 22, 2020, Davis, Morgan and Weber counties were moved to "High Level of Transmission" designation, based on the state's new COVID-19 Transmission Index.
- This change is a reminder of the importance of following all current COVID-19 health protocols, (e.g., maintainging six-feet social distancing, wearing face coverings in all facilities, staying home when sick, etc.).
- Weber State will continue to follow all the protocols outlined in our Oct. 19 communication to campus, consistent with the guidance outlined in Gov. Herbert's Oct. 14 executive order, declaring a statewide public health emergency due to COVID-19 that will remain in effect until further notice.
- Additonal guidance regarding individual actions associated with each transmission level are posted online.
Our Plan for Spring 2021
- We will continue with the flexible course delivery methods developed for fall 2020 with an emphasis on increased face-to-face instruction where feasible. This includes classes that are in-person, online, virtual and hybrid.
- The spring 2021 course schedule will be posted online Oct. 19, and registration for spring semester will begin Nov. 9. More info is available on our student page.
- Self-report any positive COVID-19 test result, suspected or confirmed exposure while awaiting testing results, or if you are experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms and are awaiting test results. Use the self-report form to do so.
- Contingency plans are in place for how we will deliver courses in any recovery stage, including if the state moves back to a heightened risk level or a specific situation arises on campus.
- Do not come to campus when sick, practice good hygiene, stay 6 feet apart when possible and wear face coverings as required.
- The Big Sky Conference is postponing all competition for fall sports to spring 2021. More information is available on the athletics website.
Gov. Gary Herbert issued an executive order, declaring a statewide public health emergency due to COVID-19 that will remain in effect until further notice. The governor also introduced the state’s new COVID-19 Transmission Index, which replaces the Utah Leads Together color-coded phased guidelines that have been in place since March.
Weber State is allowing university events to be hosted on campus, provided event organizers can meet the parameters outlined in the Phased Guidelines for Pandemic Recovery.
- Events and meetings, both those held on and off campus, are allowed with under 50 anticipated individuals during the fall semester. Events or meetings with fewer than 50 individuals can be implemented as long as mitigation measures are in place.
- Event organizers must work with venue managers and adhere to all protocols in place for that facility (e.g., space limitations, social distancing, assigned/ticketed seating, designated entrance/exits, etc.) Venue managers work with the COVID task force to align protocols including occupancy regulations.
- Events should significantly serve the university mission, and the primary audience should be students, faculty or staff.
- Events should include virtual options wherever possible to include individuals who cannot attend in person.
- There will be no third party hosted events on campus for the fall.
- Events that do not meet required protocols may be canceled or shut down. Event organizers who are not in compliance with venue/event protocols may not be able to host future events.
- Use the Event Planning Template.
Events must be shared with the Events Coordination Committee. These travel and event guidelines are subject to change based on new developments or recommendations from regional and state public health officials.
