Return To Fall 2021 Plan

HEALTH AND SAFETY PRACTICES Face Masks Face masks or face coverings will be worn by all students, employees, and visitors when indoors on campus. Masks are not required when an individual is alone in their office with the door shut or residence hall room; however, they are required when in the presence of others and in common areas (this includes common workspaces, meeting rooms, hallways, restrooms, elevators, and classrooms). All face coverings, whether disposable or reusable, must: • Fully cover the nose and mouth; • Either cover the chin or secure under the chin (open chin bandanas are not acceptable); and • Be free of any holes (macrame’, crocheted and knitted masks are prohibited). Mask Accommodations: • Faculty, staff, and students will provide documentation via a formal accommodation request to be considered for an exception to wearing masks. • Students will request the accommodation via Disability Services. • Employees will request the accommodation via Human Resources. • For additional information, please review the Chancellor’s mask order online. Food & Beverages in Class: Because masks must be removed and food spillage also makes cleaning and disinfection less efficient, no eating should occur during classes. Although drinking also requires masks to be removed, due to the importance of hydration, it is allowed. Use good judgment and re-mask immediately after taking a drink. COVID-19 Vaccine The best protection from COVID-19 is a combination of receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, wearing a mask when appropriate, monitoring for symptoms, staying home when sick, and washing your hands often. Learn about the benefits of the COVID-19 vaccination online. Faculty, staff, and supervisors are prohibited from discriminating against individuals regarding vaccination status. Employees who are fully vaccinated, defined as two weeks after receiving a final dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, are encouraged to upload proof of vaccination status here. Students who are fully vaccinated are encouraged to upload proof of vaccination. Information about the UW System 70 for 70 Program and the UW-Stout “Do Your Part” Vaccination Incentive Program is available online.
