Limited in-person academic and student services in effect through Sept. 10
As the state enters Phase 3 of Healthy Washington: Roadmap to Recovery, the UW Back-to-School Task Force has posted its new Return-to-School Guidance—in effect from the start of spring quarter (March 29) until Sept. 10. The new guidelines allow limited in-person instruction-related activities and student services. These might include individual and small group informal instruction, holding office hours, and scheduling academic-related meetings. All students, faculty and staff must comply with the latest health and safety guidelines, such as wearing masks and physical distancing, even for those who have been fully vaccinated. Telework flexibility is extended until Sept. 10 for employees who want to continue to work remotely and can do so without impeding operations.
