UW Summer Plan Eases Some Restrictions, Keeps Others in Transition to ‘Fully Reopen’ Fall

April 13, 2021: The University of Wyoming is preparing to ease some COVID-19 requirements but maintain others this summer as it transitions to a traditional fall 2021 semester.

Starting May 8, masks will no longer be required outdoors on campus, and employees who are fully vaccinated will be allowed to travel with no requirement for COVID-19 testing.

Additionally, with widespread availability of vaccines and relatively low infection numbers, UW employees who’ve been working remotely amid the pandemic will begin moving back to their offices June 7. And, the university’s requirement for students and employees spending time on campus to be tested for the virus at least once per week will be lifted July 1, as will use of the COVID Pass.

At this point, remaining in place for the summer will be the requirement to wear masks indoors, except when individuals are alone in their offices and other personal spaces; and requirements for distancing at events and gatherings, with numbers of people held at no more than 50 percent of facilities’ capacity. Masks will be required for indoor gatherings and recommended, but not required at outdoor gatherings.

UW officials will continue to assess those requirements and others -- informed by guidance from state and federal agencies -- on a weekly basis before and during the summer term.
