Start of spring semester
The university has adopted new measures to enhance the safety of the campus community. The two main components of this program are expanded testing protocols and a new app, Safer Badgers. Students, faculty and staff will use the app to manage and track test results, and to access campus facilities and services.
Proof of recent negative test results will be needed in order to access campus facilities and services.

Quarantine and isolation information

If you have been exposed to COVID-19, you should quarantine yourself immediately. You could become positive for the virus for up to 14 days after exposure.
All members of the UW–Madison community deserve to feel welcome, valued and safe. We do not tolerate harassment and discrimination, and racist behaviors and stereotyping are inconsistent with the values of UW–Madison. The Office of Compliance and Dean of Students Office provide resources and reporting options for students, faculty and staff.
