The health and safety of our students, faculty and staff are top priorities at UW-Stevens Point. We are committed to addressing concerns regarding the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and will continue to provide information on how we are slowing the spread on our campus.

All students, employees and visitors to any UW-Stevens Point campus or facility are required to wear face coverings when inside campus buildings and enclosed spaces with others outside of your household (e.g., in a UWSP vehicle). This policy is in effect until Sept. 30 at least, because of increasing COVID-19 transmission rates in counties where UW-Stevens Point is located. See the chancellor's mask mandate.

We are making space and service updates to maintain hygiene safety and physical distancing best practices in six ways:

icon Physical distancing
By modifying shared spaces with staggered seating and buffer zones, employees can continue to operate in the workplace while maintaining a healthy physical distance from colleagues and visitors.
icon Increased sanitization
We’ve implemented heightened cleaning measures to ensure the health and wellbeing of our students, faculty and staff members. We are disinfecting common areas more frequently and are providing sanitization products (e.g. hand sanitizer).
icon Behavioral signage
New cleaning standards and capacity protocols will be reinforced with strategically placed signage and wayfinding—friendly reminders that the well-being of our university community depends on all of us to do our part.
icon Face coverings, masks and hygiene
Good hand hygiene and use of appropriate face coverings will be essential to minimize the risk of person-to-person transmission of COVID-19.
icon Consistent communication
Sharing of timely, accurate and pertinent information will be essential to engaging the UW-Stevens Point community in measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 within our campus community.
icon Health monitoring and contact tracing
Students and employees are required to complete a screening tool daily when on any campus to attest that they have no symptoms of COVID. In the event of an outbreak on campus, the local Division of Public Health will be responsible for contact tracing.
