West Virginia University announced Friday (March 5) in a Community Notice that the Evansdale WVU Bookstore location has temporarily closed after the University was notified of a COVID-19 exposure at the storefront.
The location plans to reopen and resume normal operating hours no later than Friday, March 19.
After learning of the COVID-19 exposure, 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.
As a result of enhanced health and safety precautions at the storefront, anyone who visited the Evansdale WVU Bookstore location should self-monitor for symptoms, but health experts say potential exposure in this environment is minimal.
