In order to protect the health and safety of our community, the University of Washington is requiring all students and personnel to be vaccinated against COVID-19, with certain exemptions allowed. You will need toverify that you’ve been vaccinated or declare an exemption:
A hold will be placed on winter quarter registrations if your form has not been submitted by November 5, 2021.
Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department Mobile Testing
We are offering self-administered tests through the Husky Coronavirus Testingprogram, powered by the Seattle Flu Study – the group that was the first to report community spread of COVID-19 in the United States. Enrollment is encouraged for all students, faculty and staff who will be on campus regularly. Kits are available at the University Y Student Center (see sidebar for hours).
When should you report a case?
UW Environmental Health & Safety, in coordination with local and state public health agencies, responds to suspected and confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the UW community and takes action to prevent further transmission.
The public health response activities include a case interview, risk assessment, providing guidance for self-isolation, notifications to those impacted and contact tracing.
The Husky Coronavirus Testing program has self-test kits available at the University Y Student Center. Finished tests can be placed in the dropbox there as well. The dropbox is available during regular UWY hours.
Kits are available for pick up Monday - Friday between 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. If you are not already enrolled in the testing program, you can enroll in person during these times as well.
UW Tacoma is working with local partners to offer vaccination clinics on campus this fall. More information will be available soon.
