Winona State University will host a community Zoom meeting on Fall Planning and COVID-19 Response from 5 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 19.

The agenda will include a presentation by WSU leadership about plans for fall semester academics, health & safety, athletics, campus activities, and student life.

Over the summer, university officials have been hard at work ensuring a safe return to campus. Precautionary measures implemented for Fall Semester 2020 include:

  • Substantial use of alternate delivery modes including online, hybrid, and high-flex for 70% of fall semester courses.
  • Requiring face coverings for everyone inside any WSU facilities.
  • Scheduling start times for courses and labs to encourage safe movement through campus and limit density.
  • Adjustments throughout campus to accommodate physical distancing.
  • Enhanced cleaning and sanitation protocols recommended by the Minnesota Department of Health, Centers for Disease Control, and state leaders.
  • Implementation of a COVID-19 Self-Assessment that all students, faculty and staff are required to use every day prior to coming to campus.
