WVU immediately implemented its safety protocols, initiating a deep cleaning of the space.
The University also is working closely with the Monongalia County Health Department in its case investigation and contact tracing.
WVU’s dining facilities underwent significant changes prior to the start of the semester to enhance health and safety precautions. As a result, anyone who visited the Starbucks location should self-monitor for symptoms, but health experts say potential exposure in this environment is minimal.
Starbucks plans to reopen on Sunday, Oct. 25.
Additionally, all faculty, staff and students are reminded to participate in the daily wellness survey to help the University monitor COVID-19 infection rates and community spread.
