Enhanced Health and Safety Protocols for Employees

Due to a rise in COVID-19 cases in the campus community, Chancellor Blank announced a 14-day emphasis on health and safety protocols. While many of the temporary restrictions were aimed at curbing behaviors of undergraduate students, some also apply to UW–Madison employees in an effort to protect the health and safety of everyone in our campus community.

These enhanced protocols include wearing a face covering while on campus, including sidewalks and other outdoor spaces. It is permissible for an employee or student to remove their face covering when working alone on campus. In addition, employees should practice physical distancing of 6 feet or greater, on and off campus, inside and outside and even while wearing a face covering. For additional guidelines, go to
