Like last spring, UWM will be tracking compliance for those unvaccinated individuals required to test weekly. UWM will assume that all students enrolled in courses with some in-person component and all students in residence halls (regardless of their course schedule) are required to test for COVID-19 weekly.
Students will be removed from the mandatory testing list once they have submitted proof of vaccination or another approved exemption (e.g., having tested positive for COVID-19 exempts one from testing for 90 days). Students’ test results from on-campus testing will be cross-checked against this database to identify those who have not tested. Notifications will be sent to students and follow-up conduct proceedings initiated for those failing to test. A similar process exists for staff.
UWM recommends that students and staff use the campus-based testing, uwmke.vivi.healthcare. Students and staff who do not use campus-based testing will have to file proof of testing (or some other exemption) on a weekly basis using the Exemption Form.
