Return to Campus Conversations
Let’s talk. We’re holding webinars to discuss plans and connect you with WVU leaders who can answer your questions.
July 16, 10 a.m.
This live session will address testing, personal protective equipment, physical distancing, meetings, vendors, visitors, health risks, travel, what to do if you're sick, work from home, ordering supplies, etc.

Do Your Part
We’re all in this together. Our safe return to campus relies on everyone taking responsibility.
Maintain Good Personal Hygiene
The safety of our community depends on our commitment to simple day-to-day hygiene measures, like physical distancing and frequent hand-washing.More About Personal Hygiene
Clean and disinfect frequently-touched surfaces, such as tables, door knobs, desks and light switches.More About Surface Cleaning
Wear a Mask
When you’re on campus, you’re required to wear a mask in public spaces. Wear your mask to protect others, and they’ll wear their mask to protect you.More About Masks
Self-Monitor for Symptoms
Know the symptoms of coronavirus — and stay home if you’re experiencing any of them.More About Self-Monitoring
Wearing a mask or face covering will be a requirement on campus this fall. This unique initiative is an opportunity not only to share your "WHY" for wearing masks in order to help protect others, but also to encourage our community to do the same.
By signing up to be a Mountaineer Maskot, you're becoming a mask ambassador for the University. We'll be sending you a WVU-branded mask and asking you to share on your social media platforms the reason why you wear your mask. Through your social media platforms, we hope to get to know YOU, the people behind the masks and watch you inspire all within the WVU community to wear a mask while on campus this fall.
Where do I sign-up? Due to the response to this initiative exceeding our current supply of masks, we will be placing a hold on new submissions to become a Mountaineer Maskot. We appreciate your enthusiasm to support our efforts to encourage our Mountaineer community to wear masks and ask that you continue to monitor this space for when we re-open the Mountaineer Maskot sign-up.
