UW-Stout COVID Update

COVID FAQ sheet

Q. What does Weber do to help keep testing areas clean?

A. Check in/registration area

  • Weber asks the student/staff to show the ID card at registration (touchless process).
  • If the ID card is touched by the registration staff, they sanitizer their hands before helping the next person.
  • If registration table is touched by the person checking in, it is wiped/sprayed with sanitizing spray to clean.
  • The administrative staff clean their hands with sanitizer frequently throughout their shift.
Swabbing area
  • All personnel collecting the testing samples wear appropriate PPE (personal protective equipment)
  • Testing personnel change gloves between every individual getting tested.
  • The “collection area” chair and table are sprayed with sanitizing spray after each individual touches them.
Waiting Areas
  • Chairs are sprayed with sanitizer spray and wiped as soon as possible, but sometimes people do take a chair before Weber can clean them.
  • Tables/chairs in the “private screened” areas are clean/wiped down after every use.

Q. I’ve heard that if I’ve been vaccinated and are identified as a close contact, I don’t have to quarantine. Is that true?

  1. It is true that the state of Wisconsin has adopted the updated CDC quarantine guidance for fully vaccinated people who are exposed to COVID-19. Provided that certain criteria are met, it is no longer required for vaccinated persons to quarantine following close contact with a person with COVID-19. Because data about the duration of vaccine-induced protection are still accumulating, the duration of quarantine exemption for vaccinated persons is currently limited to the 90 days after receiving the last dose in a vaccine series.

Q. I have heard that UW-Stout is planning for a more normal 2021-2022 academic year. What does this involve?

  1. With the information available to us currently regarding the availability of vaccinations and the level of COVID-19 cases, we anticipate next fall to include:
  • An increase of in-person, hands-on courses, labs, and studios, as well as more in-person social activities.
  • Residence halls returning to full capacity, open common areas, and programming.
  • Dining Services returning to more regular operations.
  • Full UREC and club sports opportunities.
  • Enhanced opportunities to enjoy bike trails, disc golf courses, and other outdoor activities in the surrounding community.
