WVSU Athletics’ plan was developed following safety guidelines from the NCAA’s “Core Principles of Resocialization of Collegiate Sports,” MEC’s “Return to Competition Plan,” and state and local officials . We will continue to monitor these recommendations and the latest medical and public health information available to make adjustments as warranted . WVSU Athletics’ protocol, rules, and regulations will be posted digitally through clear signage in all pertinent athletic areas/venues as well as being disseminated to all athletes, coaching/athletic staff, visiting teams, fans/ visitors, and athletic officials to ensure everyone is aware of the expectations well before the point of contact.
WVSU student-athletes will follow the University’s policy for COVID-19 testing when they return to campus . All student athletes are encouraged to get vaccinated;
Student-athletes will be required to wear masks when in athletics facilities, unless in practice/game areas . They will be required to social distance when possible;

WVSU Athletics will work with Physical Facilities staff to ensure practice/game areas and equipment are cleaned and sanitized on a daily basis;
The Athletic Training staff will follow standards from the MEC Athletic Trainers Committee and the National Athletic Trainers’ Association for practices, games, and travel;

The Athletic Department will communicate with student-athletes separately on measures being taken to ensure their health and safety. Questions can be directed to Athletic Director Mr. Nate Burton at nburton2@wvstateu.edu.
