The University implemented the changes outlined in the message to the UW community from Dr. Geoff Gottlieb, chair of the University Advisory Committee on Communicable Diseases. Key updates include:
Alumni, affiliates, visitors, and students with valid UW NetIDs are (at various times) not able to log into EH&S online training courses and will see an error message when attempting to do so. This is because Bridge, the UW learning management system, does not recognize their UW affiliation. The Environmental Health & Safety Department (EH&S) developed a new self-service tool to assist these individuals with obtaining access to Bridge.
This week, outdoor temperatures are expected to rise above 85°F, which requires University units to implement safety measures for outdoor workers to prevent heat related illness.
June 9, 2023 - This recall has been expanded to include select Wawona Frozen Foods Organic Daybreak Blend frozen fruit blend packages that were distributed in Washington state Costco stores between April 15 and June 26, 2022. The affected product lots are no longer available for purchase. Costco has begun contacting members who have a purchase history of the affected products.
Individuals can continue to follow the consumer guidance included in the March 2023 recall advisory (below).
COVID-19 case counts were based on cases reported to the UW Environmental Health & Safety Department (EH&S), including results from the Husky Coronavirus Testing program. Therefore, the information on this page did not include all cases of COVID-19 among UW community members. The case count excluded UW Medicine medical facility employees and persons not affiliated with the UW.
