WCSU Spring semester to start in-person, residential students to be tested

Beginning Monday, West Conn offices will return to normal operations and schedules.  The spring semester will begin as originally scheduled, with Move-in Day for residential students on Tuesday the 18th.  Upon arrival, residential students will receive a rapid antigen test. Students who test positive will not be permitted to move in. 

Classes scheduled as in-person will remain that way, with three feet of separation between desks and masks required. 

WestConn President Dr John Clark says in order to avoid surprises, the university recommends students test themselves at home on the morning of Move-in Day and stay home if positive.  Those who have been granted exemptions to vaccination will be required to test beginning the week of January 24th and to submit those results by the weekly deadline.

During the semester, residential students in apartment-style halls who test positive or are symptomatic will isolate in their rooms with their roommates. Students living in Litchfield or Newbury Halls will isolate in Fairfield Hall.  Any student able to return home to recover is encouraged to follow that course. 

Indoor social distancing and masks will be required for the foreseeable future and no spectators will be allowed at WCSU athletic events.
