Keep Wes Safe

Wesleyan University is committed to fostering a safe and healthy environment in which every member of its community can thrive.

As the pandemic evolves, so does our response to it. We are moving from a state of emergency to a state of watchful concern, much like our concern with seasonal health risks.  

Masking

Masking is optional for vaccinated and boosted students, faculty, and staff. Students, faculty, and staff with vaccine exemptions are still required to wear a properly fitted mask indoors. Some classes may still require everyone to mask. Faculty, students, and staff should continue to carry a mask with them; we ask that you be accommodating to those who are more comfortable with everyone masked during meetings.  

Testing

The University is shifting from PCR testing to rapid antigen testing for students who are symptomatic. Students who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms may pick up a rapid antigen test in Beckham Hall. Faculty and staff who wish to continue testing should do so through tests available at local pharmacies and health care providers.  Faculty, students and staff with vaccine exemptions are required to test weekly.
