As West Virginia begins to lessen restrictions due to COVID-19 and as WVU Medicine ramps up clinical operations, please know that WVU Health Sciences Center academic faculty and staff are expected to follow the current guidance set forth by the University. This includes the continuation of telecommuting for faculty and staff as well as the delivery of student instruction remotely.

Over the next few weeks, the WVU Health Sciences Center may resume ‚Äčsome off-site clinical student experiences, limited pre-approved on-site educational/research activities and the ‚Äčexpansion of our dental and physical therapy services. However, before any plans are implemented, the appropriate resources must be in place. It is important to emphasize that all of these efforts will take significant coordination across the WVU Health Sciences Center schools and support units. Please be mindful of our interconnectedness and to the guidance that is being issued.

Moving forward, please know that efforts will be made to notify you in advance of any significant changes to the current guidance so you can plan accordingly. Our primary concern is for the safety and wellbeing of our faculty, staff and students. While we navigate this sea of change, your cooperation and patience is greatly appreciated.

Please direct any questions or concerns regarding resuming operations to the Health Sciences Incident Command at HSIC@hsc.wvu.edu.
