Coronavirus Disease 2019

“COVID-19” refers to the disease caused by the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. COVID-19 was first identified in Wuhan, China in December 2019 and continues to be a significant health concern around the world.  The best way to protect yourself and your community from spreading COVID-19 is vaccination, frequent handwashing, wearing a mask in public spaces, social distancing, and staying home if you are sick.


Vaccine Mandates

To best protect the health and safety of our campus community, Wayne State will require all students, faculty and staff to receive their COVID-19 vaccination as well as the influenza (flu) vaccination and booster or have an approved waiver for the winter 2022 semester.  For specific questions or concerns regarding the vaccine mandates—including coronavirus and flu—please reach out to


Campus Daily Screener

Any member or guest of the WSU community who wishes to be on campus must take the Campus Daily Screener (CDS) before coming to campus.

If you need to come to campus and have questions regarding symptoms, exposure to COVID-19, what to do after travelling, etc., we encourage you to take the CDS and answer “yes” to the questions that relate to your case. An experienced and knowledgeable member of the CDS team will be in touch with you with the next steps.  The CDS is monitored from 5am until 11pm, seven days a week.


Appointments at Campus Health Center

Campus Health Center (CHC) continues to see patients for primary care, and now offers telehealth (phone), telemedicine (video), and in-person visits.  When scheduling your appointment, ask our staff which type of appointment may be right for you.
