The university is closely tracking the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Visit the state Department of Health & Senior Services for the most recent updates for Missouri. The situation is changing rapidly and we encourage all students, staff and faculty to carefully read all university communications and be prepared to follow specific guidance as it arises. We will also provide updates here when new information or guidance becomes available.

Symptoms of this infectious illness include fever, cough and difficulty breathing. Based on current information, symptoms can appear anywhere from two to 14 days after initial exposure to the disease and can be transmitted from inhaling or touching infected droplets — usually through a cough or sneeze — from an infected person.

If you are a Washington University employee or student whose physical presence is required on campus to perform essential services, you are required to self-screen daily for COVID-19 symptoms before coming to campus. Learn more about COVID-19 restrictions and screening for campus access.
