Campus COVID-19 Update for Employees
Over the past two weeks, an increase in employee COVID-19 case counts and employee test positivity rates has been observed. Contact tracing suggests this is mostly due to activities and events in employees’ personal lives, rather than their on-site work. In a message to campus, Jake Baggott, executive director of University Health Services, urged employees to follow all campus safety protocols, avoid gatherings with anyone not in one’s immediate household, and take advantage of no-cost COVID-19 testing on campus. The full message is available online in multiple languages at go.wisc.edu/88h760.
