West Virginia University will relaunch its public dashboard today (Aug. 23) to track and compile COVID-19 information collected on the Morgantown campus. Information regarding dashboards and data from the Beckley and Keyser campuses will be announced at a later date.
Beginning this afternoon, daily testing data from the Morgantown campus will be updated Monday-Friday at 2 p.m.
Additionally, information such as quarantine, isolation and vaccination rates will be updated each Wednesday at 2 p.m.
Required COVID-19 testing wrapped up last week for those on the Morgantown campus who had not verified their vaccination or provided a negative COVID-19 test result by Aug. 20 as part of the Return to Campus protocols.
The University will begin weekly random COVID-19 sample testing this week at the Student Rec Center among certain groups of students, faculty and staff who are on campus and have not been vaccinated or have not verified their vaccination with WVU. At this time, students and employees who verified their vaccination with the University will be exempt from sample testing.
Students and employees who are identified to take part in WVU’s sample testing program are required to complete COVID-19 testing. Those who fail to comply with the request to undergo testing may be subject to discipline in accordance with the University’s policies and procedures.
In partnership with the Monongalia County Health Department, WVU is also expanding free on-campus COVID-19 community testing opportunities. Beginning Monday, Aug. 23, testing for WVU students and employees as well as Monongalia County residents will be offered at the Student Rec Center (G44):
- Mondays – 8 a.m. to noon
- Tuesdays – noon to 4 p.m.
- Wednesdays – noon to 4 p.m.
- Thursdays – 8 a.m. to noon
- Fridays – 8 a.m. to noon
All WVU community members are required to report if they test positive for COVID-19 or are self-quarantining due to suspected or known exposure to COVID-19. In Morgantown, students and employees should report their positive results to CareServices@mail.wvu.edu.
