Below is the Face Covering Policy. Further details regarding the Warhawk Return can be found on the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Warhawks Return website.

Wearing face coverings will reduce the spread of infection by protecting you as well as those around you. Appropriate face coverings must:

  • –  fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face and chin
  • –  cover both the nose and mouth
  • –  be able to be laundered and machine-dried, or disposed of after use
  • –  not have an exhalation valve
    Appropriate face coverings are required to be worn at all times while in public areas, shared spaces in all buildings, hallways, classrooms and in university vehicles. Face coverings should also be worn outdoors when social distancing cannot be continuously maintained between individuals.
    The following instances are exceptions where face coverings are not required due to activity or environmental factors:
  • –  Outdoors when continuous social distancing can be maintained
  • –  While eating or drinking
  • –  While in your residence hall room
  • –  While alone inside a university office
  • –  While performing physically exerting activities such as manual labor and athletics training
  • –  When an individual has any physical limitations or medical reasons that may preclude them from safely wearing a face covering
    Students who are unable to wear face coverings due to medical reasons may request accommodations through the Center for Students with Disabilities uww.edu/csd/apply-now. Employees who are unable to wear face coverings due to medical reasons may request accommodations through the campus ADA Coordinator at 262-472-1409 or [email protected].
