Case Reporting, Tracking & Notification Procedures
EWU is tracking all reported cases, coordinating with public health officials, sanitizing affected areas, and following contact tracing and notification protocols. Individuals and groups who are identified as having been in close contact with someone on campus who has a confirmed case of COVID-19 will be appropriately notified. The CDC has updated the definition of close contact to anyone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period. Should a situation arise with a broader impact, the university will notify the campus community of any issues or concerns.
All employees who are working on one of EWU’s campuses are required to fill out a daily symptom attestation online before coming to campus or immediately upon arrival.
