Learning to Live With COVID-19
We are creating a culture of health and safety on campus in which everyone plays a role in protecting themselves and others from the risk of contracting COVID-19.
When on campus property, you must:
- Practicing social distancing (6 ft. apart)
- Wear face covering or mask, and gloves if your role calls for their use
- Wash your hands often
- Use hand sanitizer (available on campus)
- Have your temperature checked as you enter buildings and disclose any COVID-19 symptoms. If you have a fever higher than 100.4 degrees, you will not be allowed to enter the building and will be encouraged to see your health care provider.

Researching COVID-19 to develop treatments is a global effort, and Western University of Health Sciences is contributing to this scientific knowledge. WesternU faculty recently published two separate articles investigating COVID-19.
