Autumn Resources & Opportunities (Vol.4) – Husky Pawket Guide


Hi Huskies,

This has likely been a tiring couple of weeks amidst the election, midterms, and continuing to navigate daily life in the COVID era. No matter your political beliefs, this is a time to approach one another with compassion, open-mindedness, and love.

1. COVID health and safety

There is potentially promising news on the vaccine front. This doesn’t mean we can let our guard down – it will take time for any successful vaccine to be comprehensively distributed, and we are seeing record surges of coronavirus in the US.

UW students have early access to exposure notifications through an app that will notify you if you’ve been near someone who later reports testing positive for COVID-19.

COVID and the holidays: Here’s what experts say students and parents should consider to reduce the chances of infecting family members if returning home for the holidays.

See how the coronavirus spreads through the air in everyday scenarios depending on safety measures and length of exposure.


IF YOU HAVE COVID-19 SYMPTOMS

If you are currently experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home and  follow the instructions for what to do if you feel sick.

2. Connecting with community

Building your network while meeting Dawgs: Dinner with the Pack connects you with Huskies and alumni while building your professional network in the areas of business, health, and tech.

Active pursuits are a great way to stay healthy and be social. The UWild Gear Garage has a range of seasonal equipment that students can rent inexpensively.

For a list of student spaces that are currently open, see the What’s Open page.
