Some individuals who have an increased risk for severe illness, should take extra precautions. These individuals may be classified by the following categories:
Older adults — risk for severe illness increases with age
People of any age with underlying medical conditions as identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
WWU employees who believe they will not be able to return to regular on-campus duties due to COVID-19 and the accompanying risks or challenges must submit an Accommodation Request Form. Work-from-home arrangements are not authorized outside of this process; employees must apply for an accommodation and supervisors will be consulted by the Human Resources Department when making a determination.
