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.  

Students and employees can learn more about how to respond to potential COVID-19 exposure at the What to Do If ... page of the Return to Campus website.
