Count on MeWarriors together, protecting our campus & our community.
The only way we get to any sort of normal beyond this global health crisis is if we all step up and do our part to protect our campus, our community and our college experience.
The pandemic safety guidelines work best when everybody practices them together.
We’re counting on every Warrior to fight for the best college experience possible this fall by doing their part to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in our campus community.
Every Warrior, These 3 Actions
To have a safe and successful experience on campus, remember these key steps.
Can we count on you?
Get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you can. It’s fast, free and safe.
There are a few different COVID-19 vaccines, and they all teach the immune system how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19.
WSU strongly recommends that you get a COVID-19 vaccine.
There are many rumors about the COVID-19 vaccine, so be sure you stay up to date on COVID-19 vaccine myths and facts.
At this time, WSU does not have a policy requiring students, faculty or staff to get COVID-19 vaccines.
Find Your Vaccine
Vaccines at WSU
You could also make an appointment with a local vaccine provider. If you have the opportunity to get the vaccine at an off-campus clinic, please do get vaccinated.
There will be no cost for the vaccine.
The COVID-19 vaccine will be free for students and employees.
Some vaccination clinics may ask for medical insurance information, so please bring insurance documents to your appointment.
If you do not have insurance, you can still get vaccinated.
Have You Been Vaccinated?
If you have received a COVID-19 vaccine, please self-report your vaccination to WSU.
This will help us keep track of vaccine rates for our campus community and let us know who to contact for the next vaccine clinic.
When on campus, be sure to wash or sanitize your hands frequently!
Follow the CDC guidelines for hand washing by washing for at least twenty seconds.
If you can’t wash your hands, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
In addition to your hands, disinfect your frequently-touched belongings and spaces.
The stress of the pandemic can take a toll on our mental health. Check in with your fellow Warriors to help support one another.
WSU Counseling Services is always here to help you navigate this tough time. Most importantly, you don’t have to live in fear this semester.
Just be sure to socialize wisely and follow the guidelines the best you can.
The first step toward better mental health is simply to talk honestly about how you are doing with friends, family — maybe even a professional with WSU Counseling Services.
It’s ok to have a good days and bad days. It’s ok to be struggling. It’s ok to ask for help, and to be there for others when they need mental health support too.
WSU Counselor Mick Lynch encourages you to say something in this quick mental health check in.
