UW-Stout COVID Update

Q. As we approach the mid-point of the semester, I'm worried that people are getting comfortable and not adhering to the safety protocols.

The campus community has been doing a wonderful job adhering to our safety protocols. Thank you! It is critical that this hard work continues. Please adhere to all safety protocols listed in the Return to Fall plan and showcased in our Safer@Stout training.

  • Before starting work/class and before you leave the room, you must wipe down all work areas with a disinfectant that is effective against COVID-19.
  • Masks and social distancing continue to be required.
  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • On campus students and selected off campus student cohorts should continue their antigen testing regimen.
  • If you are contacted by Public Health or UW-Stout contact tracers, return their phone calls and participate fully in contact tracing.

Q. What is involved with Advisement Day and why is it so important this year?

Given all of the changes to our learning environments due to COVID-19, checking-in with advisors is more necessary than ever. Stout faculty and staff take connecting with students seriously and advising students is one of many ways they can help students stay on track towards degree completion and successful at Stout.

Students can ask questions about course plans for next semester and debrief about the fall.

First-Year students will receive a “Monday Minute” email with additional information about how to prepare for and attend an advising session with their Advisement Center advisor. Non first-year students can contact their advisor or program director for additional information.

Q. What are the campus plans for after Thanksgiving?

UW-Stout plans to continue to follow the current academic calendar and end the semester in person as planned. The current antigen testing regimen will continue through December 19. Plans are being finalized for testing during break and for the spring semester.
