Throughout the planning process, university administrators adopted two guiding principles:

  1. Protect the safety, health, and well-being of university employees, students, and visitors; and

  2. Ensure the institution maintains academic integrity regardless of the instructional modality used by faculty

Practicing regularly the "3 Ws" as articulated by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services when you enter the public:

  • WEAR a face covering

  • WAIT at least six feet apart from other people to avoid close contact

  • WASH hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer

Face coverings are required for all students, faculty, staff, contractors, vendors, suppliers, and visitors in classrooms, meeting rooms, hallways, elevators, public spaces, and common areas as well as in any WSSU building. Face coverings must also be worn in office spaces and outdoor spaces where physical distancing is difficult to maintain. Wearing a face covering is not required when alone in a personal office or in individual residence hall room.

Faculty, staff, and students are being provided a starting supply of PPE in a Return-to-Campus Kit. The kit contains the following:

  • Two cloth face coverings

  • Hand sanitizer

  • COVID-19 health information
  • Thermometer

  • Tissues
