Students & Families

The health and safety of our Ram family are always our top priority. Please read the following information carefully so that you can be safe during this spring semester. 

  • Face coverings are no longer required in indoor spaces, including classrooms, lab spaces (unless clinical and required by law or mandate), personal offices, dining areas, events spaces, etc.
  • Faculty and staff cannot require people to wear masks in individual classrooms, lab spaces, personal offices, events spaces, etc.
  • Faculty and staff can encourage mask wearing in their immediate spaces.
  • Faculty and staff cannot change a course’s modality. We will sustain our current course modality plan of 70% in-person and 30% online consistent with UNC System guidance on returning to pre-Covid instructional delivery ratios.
  • Faculty and staff cannot refuse service to individuals choosing not to wear masks.
  • Masks will be optional in residence halls.
  • Masks will be optional on WSSU shuttles.

We strongly encourage everyone to continue wearing a face covering when in public spaces. Additionally, we want to reiterate that all our mitigation efforts and PPE remain available to everyone. We will continue our high-touch cleaning practices and provide testing and vaccination opportunities. We fully support employees in making the best decisions for their personal health.

As a reminder, please be patient and show respect for your fellow Rams as we move through this process. Everyone’s sense of personal risk moves at a different pace.
