Testing Information for Pierce and Thurston Counties

New Health Verification (HVF) Process Explained

IF YOU ARE VACCINATED:  You don’t need to complete an HVF unless you have COVID symptoms or exposures. If you have symptoms or exposure, use the HVF to tell us what’s happening, and stay home until you hear from us

IF YOU ARE EXEMPTED UNVACCINATED: Use the HVF each time you come to campus or attend in-person, college-related activities

Clean Air Policy Reminder

Many of us are either new to campus or coming back after significant time away. As a reminder, we do have an air quality policy on campus, which calls for us to keep our fragrances at home. Some in our community have respiratory sensitivity. Please help us protect them. This is especially important given the conditions of the pandemic
