Updated information regarding the University’s response to the coronavirus outbreak

WVU continues to closely follow the coronavirus outbreak and modify protocols and guidelines as conditions change. Currently, there remain no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in West Virginia. A fact sheet has also been developed for quick reference.

Travel

Following President Trump’s announcement regarding the suspension of travel from Europe (minus the United Kingdom) for the next 30 days, the Office of Global Affairs is working to recall 30 students studying abroad back to the United States.

Research supplies

Research faculty should consider performing an inventory of chemicals, reagents and laboratory supplies and ordering a 2-3 month supply. Some of these may be sourced from overseas and could experience supply chain disruption. Additionally, local deliveries of gas cylinders, liquid cyrogens etc. may be curtailed.

Campus Cleaning

University faculty and staff should also continue to monitor their email inboxes for MOUNTAINEER E-News, other important emails and as well as coronavirus.wvu.edu, for updates. Additional resources are also available at the website.

Remember that WVU has established an email account, coronavirus@mail.wvu.edu, for questions or concerns.
