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 Hugh Baby’s location or other restaurant in Evansdale Crossing should self-monitor for symptoms, but health experts say potential exposure in this environment is minimal.
The Hugh Baby's location will remain closed for the rest of the semester. However, Waldo’s Chicken, which previously closed on Nov. 12, will reopen and operate at Evansdale Crossing from noon to 7 p.m. for the remainder of the semester.
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.
