School of Social Work COVID-19 Information & Resources
The School of Social Work developed these pages to provide resources and tools to help our faculty, staff and students stay informed and remain productive during the COVID-19 pandemic. For the latest University-wide updates, go to the UW FAQs and the UW Novel Coronavirus & COVID-19: Facts and Resources page as well as the UW Back-to-School and the UW Back-to-the-Workplace pages.
Spring quarter classes continue online
Most classes held during the upcoming spring quarter, which begins March 29, will continue to be offered online, according to a recent announcement by UW President Ana Mari Cauce and Provost Mark Richards. Depending on health and safety guidelines, however, there may be more in-person services and activities offered as the quarter progresses. The summer session is expected to be a mix of remote and in-person courses, and UW administrators are hopeful that students can return to campus this autumn with primarily in-person classes. Employees who are currently teleworking should continue to do so through June 30, 2021. The Puget Sound Region is expected to move to Phase 2 on Feb. 1. This does not have significant impacts on instruction or research operations on our campuses.
Access to COVID-19 exposure app extended to UW employees
Faculty and staff now have the opportunity to receive early access to a new COVID-19 exposure notification app, available to students since early November. This pilot project will help the Washington State Department of Health fine tune the mobile app before making it available state-wide. If you are interested in participating, you can download the app at wanotify.uw.edu/uw.
