COVID-19 Information

All members of our campus community are expected to continue to follow general guidelines and requirements related to COVID-19, including:

  • Wearing face coverings at all times.
  • Checking for symptoms prior to coming to campus. 
  • Staying home when sick.
  • Practicing 6-foot social distancing at all times.
  • Self reporting if you test positive for COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone who has. 

Weber State will be providing free COVID-19 testing, beginning the week of Jan. 4. We expect all students who live, work or attend classes on campus to be tested by Jan. 22. After Jan. 22, students, faculty and staff will be randomly selected to take a COVID-19 test and will be notified through their WSU email. All students can be tested throughout the semester, even if they are not regularly coming to campus or have not been selected to be tested. If you are symptomatic, you should complete the self-report form. Otherwise, all students can register to be tested as part of our general COVID testing.

For the latest news and guidance regarding COVID-19 developments on campus please visit weber.edu/coronavirus, or weber.edu/coronavirus/students.html for student-specific information. If you have any COVID-19 related questions about the information found on these websites, please email covid19@weber.edu
