On October 31, 2022, Washington state’s public health emergency proclamations for COVID-19 ended. Vaccination is no longer required for employees or students on campus. However, the Washington Department of Labor and Industries says COVID-19 is still a recognized workplace hazard and all employers must meet certain minimum requirements.
The following expectations apply on SPU’s campus for all students, employees, contractors, visitors, and volunteers. These expectations may be updated from time to time and will continue to apply until revised or withdrawn. SPU employees and students may also access a copy of SPU’s COVID-19 Campus Plan online, which contains detailed descriptions of SPU’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols
Reducing the risk of infection on campus is a shared responsibility, and everyone needs to do their part. No university can guarantee an environment free of COVID-19, and despite SPU’s policies and protocols, it is still possible that people could contract COVID-19 on campus. However, by collectively taking precautions, we can promote each other’s health and well-being.
To contact SPU Health Services pursuant to the expectations below, call 206-281-2231 or use the secure messaging patient portal. If SPU Health Services cannot be reached, contact the Office of Safety and Security at 206-281-2911. SPU employees may contact the Office of Facility and Project Management regarding cleaning or physical facilities on campus at 206-281-2330 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
