COVID Guidance

As we prepare for the fall 2022 semester, please be aware that the University plans to continue to follow CDC recommendations as they relate to both the prevention of community spread and the specific recommendations pertaining to Institutions of Higher Education. Should community health factors or CDC/Public Health recommendations change, modifications or reinstatement of past practices may occur. At this time, University leadership asks that you be aware of and adhere to the following:

Masking:

  • No masking requirement will be in place in general locations on campus (medical treatment areas like the Wellness Center or Athletic training rooms may continue to require masking).
  • Please be respectful and cooperate with any individuals or areas that may post signage requesting that individuals use face coverings while in the operational area.
  • If face coverings are needed, they will be made available at the Wellness Center on the Green Bay campus or at the main administrative offices at the Marinette, Manitowoc and Sheboygan campuses.

Testing:

  • No surveillance testing will be required.
    • Individual operational areas (e.g. Athletics & International Education) may require testing for participation in certain university activities.
  • Students will be able to obtain at-home testing kits for voluntary surveillance testing through the Wellness Center on the Green Bay campus (effective 8/15) or at the main administrative office on your respective campus for those on the Marinette, Manitowoc and Sheboygan campuses (effective 8/23).  It is no longer necessary to confirm a positive home antigen test with the PCR test, just begin isolation.
  • Symptomatic testing for students on the Green Bay campus will be performed by the Wellness Center effective August, 15th. To schedule a test at the Green Bay Campus call 920-465-2380. For Manitowoc, Marinette and Sheboygan, tests are available at Prevea clinic sites. Visit myprevea.com to schedule, or contact your personal provider or pharmacy of choice. 

Vaccinations:

  • UW-Green Bay recommends all faculty, staff and students be up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters per CDC guidance.
  • There will be no vaccination requirements for participation in any University activity.
  • Vaccinations and boosters for all students will be available through the Wellness Center (for Manitowoc, Marinette and Sheboygan campus locations, available at Prevea clinic sites). Green Bay students can call 920-465-2380 to schedule an appointment.

Quarantine & Isolation:

  • Individuals who test positive should isolate in their residence, and refrain from coming to campus for classes, work or activities. Click here to determine length of quarantine.
  • There will be no designated quarantine/isolation space for Green Bay campus students residing in university housing. Residents who test positive are encouraged to communicate and coordinate with their roommate(s) or to return home to complete their period of isolation when possible.
