Q: Where can I find the “Standard Operating Procedures” that faculty will use to manage classroom environments?


Q: In a classroom environment, how would I know if a student had a documented medical need that should result in individual accommodations to any COVID19 policy?

A: The WFU Student Health Service would require documentation of a medical or disabling condition that limits a person’s ability to meet certain expectations (for example, wearing a mask). Campus health officials would then work with the student on providing that information to faculty via our normal documented accommodations processes. Though such situations would be evaluated on an individual basis, one possible reasonable accommodation for such a condition could be that a student receive instruction through online means remotely and not come to campus.

Facilities/Operations (6)

Q: Will students be able to access the Auditorium Level student refrigerators, microwaves, and vending machines?

A: Yes, but should be encouraged to clean touched surfaces before and after use. Cleaning products and sanitizer will also be made available for these tasks.

WFUSB Faculty and Staff seek approval to convene any in-person event or meeting by completing an approval process with University Events.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Wake Forest University faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to conduct non-class activities virtually. When in-person activities (such as meetings, tutoring, co-curricular activities, etc) can be conducted in compliance with social distancing requirements, such activities should be minimal in size and duration to the extent feasible. All event planners should be prepared to complete thorough forms, event planning discussions and be subject to review that aligns with the University-wide Space Usage & Prioritization Policy, 2.C.02.
