The tracker asks a few simple questions and provides recommended next steps based on the user’s responses.

Some In-Person Events and Meetings to Resume

UW–Madison has issued new policies regarding how and where students and employees can gather for in-person events and meetings that fall outside of the formal classroom experience. These policies seek to mitigate the risks of COVID-19 to the campus community while allowing some in-person activities to resume. The university recommends that events and meetings continue to be held virtually whenever possible. In-person events should also allow for virtual participation by attendees who choose not to or are unable to participate in person. The campus policies apply to all programs, activities, meetings, or gatherings, regardless of their location on or off university property. The policies may be modified as new information becomes available from national, state and local public health agencies. The most current university event policy can be found on the Smart Restart website at
