COVID Guidance

The University plans to continue to follow CDC recommendations as they relate to both the prevention of community spread and the specific recommendations pertaining to Institutions of higher education. Should community health factors or CDC/public health recommendations change, modifications or reinstatement of past practices may occur. At this time, University leadership asks that you be aware of and adhere to the following:


  • No masking requirement will be in place in general locations on campus (medical treatment areas like the Wellness Center or athletic training rooms may continue to require masking).
  • Please be respectful and cooperate with any individuals or areas that may post signage requesting that individuals use face coverings while in the operational area.
  • If face coverings are needed, they will be made available at the Wellness Center on the Green Bay campus or at the main administrative offices at the Marinette, Manitowoc and Sheboygan campuses.


  • No surveillance testing will be required.
    • Individual operational areas (e.g. Athletics & International Education) may require testing for participation in certain university activities.
  • Students will be able to obtain at-home testing kits for voluntary surveillance testing through the Wellness Center on the Green Bay campus (effective 8/15) or at the main administrative office on your respective campus for those on the Marinette, Manitowoc and Sheboygan campuses (effective 8/23). It is no longer necessary to confirm a positive home antigen test with the PCR test, just begin isolation.
  • Symptomatic testing for students on the Green Bay campus will be performed by the Wellness Center effective August 15. To schedule a test at the Green Bay Campus, call (920) 465-2380. For Manitowoc, Marinette and Sheboygan, tests are available at Prevea clinic sites. Visit to schedule, or contact your personal provider or pharmacy of choice.


  • UW-Green Bay recommends all faculty, staff and students be up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters per CDC guidance.
  • There will be no vaccination requirements for participation in any University activity.
  • Vaccinations and boosters for all students will be available through the Green Bay Wellness Center or at the Prevea clinic sites in Manitowoc, Marinette and Sheboygan. Green Bay students can call 920-465-2380 to schedule an appointment.

Quarantine & Isolation

  • If you test positive, you should isolate in your residence, and refrain from coming to campus for classes, work or activities. Follow CDC guidelines to determine length of quarantine.
  • There will be no designated quarantine/isolation space for Green Bay campus students residing in university housing. If you test positive, we encourage you to communicate and coordinate with your roommate(s) or to return home to complete your period of isolation when possible. If you wish to remain on campus, you will be under the directive to isolate-in-place. Please contact Housing & Residential Education at (920) 465-2040 with questions pertaining to housing needs or the Wellness Center at (920) 465-2380 for questions regarding health and welfare.
  • The University will not be performing contact tracing on individuals who test positive or report a positive test.
