Lab and Campus Safety

As vaccines are rolled out it is especially important to stay the course and continue our public health practices: universal masking, physical distancing, keeping our density low, hand hygiene, and daily screening before coming to campus. Our public health experts, as well as the state, county and city, will determine when we can relax our public health requirements. Please use, post, and share these WashU campus and lab safety reminders to continue promoting safe practices.

Stay the Course
