Screening and Testing

All employees and students are encouraged to perform a daily health self-assessment through the Campus Clear App (CLICK HERE TO ACCESS THE CAMPUS CLEAR APP). All WVSU community members must take responsibility for monitoring their daily health for their own benefit and the safety of their fellow WVSU community members . Everyone is encouraged to take their temperature before leaving home or their residence hall each day as part of the daily health screening . Additionally, everyone will have the opportunity to have their temperature checked daily on campus . Thermometers will remain mounted on campus building walls for self-temperature checks . Anyone whose temperature exceeds 100 .4⁰F will not be permitted to enter campus facilities with the exception of the health center or their campus residence.

Student-athletes will undergo additional screening as directed by the Athletic Department.
COVID-19 testing is required for all non-vaccinated students . In the event a student is exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, on-site testing at FamilyCare Health Center will be required . Such students will self-quarantine as instructed on campus until their test results are received and their quarantine period has been satisfied per the Kanawha-Charleston Health Department . Someone in self-quarantine stays separated from others, and they limit movement outside of their home or current place of residence . Meals will be delivered to self-quarantined students while awaiting their test results.

Additional details will be shared in the WVSU Student Code of Conduct.
In the event a residential student tests positive for COVID-19 they will have the option to isolate on campus in the designated quarantine/isolation housing area or off-campus at their own expense until said quarantine/isolation period has been satisfied and released by the health department . WVSU will work with the local health department in accordance with all regulatory guidance and applicable laws to ensure that contact tracing occurs if an employee or student tests positive for COVID-19 or those individuals who have had close contact exposure to a confirmed COVID-19 positive . The CDC defines contact tracing as part of the process of supporting patients and warning contacts of exposure in order to stop chains of transmission . Through the contact tracing process others who may have come into contact with the person who tested positive are identified, notified, and informed of any actions that may be required.
