Greetings and Happy New Year!
As the Spring 2022 Lifelong Learning term approaches we wanted to make you aware of the current University COVID-19 protocols. Wake Forest University has updated their Visitor protocols effective December 29, 2021. These protocols are currently in effect through January 2022. If proof of vaccination and booster shot or negative test results are still required at the start of an in-person class all participants will be contacted regarding the procedure for providing such information.
WFU Visitor COVID-19 protocols:
Visitors to the Reynolda Campus must provide proof of vaccination and a booster shot, or a negative test result, to attend indoor events. PCR and rapid antigen test results will be accepted and tests must be taken within 48 hours of the event.
Face masks are required indoors. This policy is in line with Winston-Salem’s continuing city-wide indoor mask mandate, and increased efforts will be made to monitor and enforce the mandate in buildings on campus, including public spaces, study areas and hallways in academic and administrative buildings. Face masks are highly effective at preventing transmission, and compliance is especially important given the increased transmissibility of the Omicron variant.
The University will continually review protocols and recommendations for updates as needed based on the available data and advice of public health experts. We anticipate that the current requirements will remain in effect through the month of January.
Thank you for your patience while we travel through this pandemic together.
