Winter 2022 Resources & Opportunities (Vol. 5) – Husky Pawket Guide


Hi Huskies,

As you likely saw in the message from President Cauce and Provost Richards on Tuesday, UW will continue largely in-person classes during spring quarter and masks will be optional inside most University facilities starting the first day of spring quarter (Mar. 28) – please read their message for full details.

We strongly recommend wearing masks indoors during the first two weeks of spring quarter following any spring break travel, and will remain fully supportive and encouraging of students who choose to continue masking indoors after the requirement goes away.

1. Health and Safety

As local masking and vaccination requirements ease, here’s what you need to know about mask and vaccine rules at Seattle-area arts and music events.


You can still pick up free masks at a variety of campus locations.


It’s not too late to get your flu shot through Hall Health – learn more and schedule at: flushots.uw.edu.


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.
