Winter 2022 Resources & Opportunities (Vol. 4) – Husky Pawket Guide

Hi Huskies,

I hope you had a restful long weekend. Governor Jay Inslee announced that the statewide mask requirement will lift for most indoor spaces starting on Mar. 21. However, mask mandates in Seattle and King County may not follow the same schedule. Stay tuned for more information from the University on any subsequent changes to UW’s mask policies.

How to prolong the life of your N95 and KN95 masks:

Managing sleep: Whether it’s finals time or any ordinary day of the week, getting quality sleep is key to our overall health.

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