Reminder - Required Daily Health Attestation

All students residing in the Lexington/Rockbridge area are required to complete the symptom/exposure check (https://attest.wlu.edu) each day as a part of their own regular health monitoring routine, even if they are not scheduled to come on to campus.

Reminder - Personal Travel from Campus

All personal travel outside of the Lexington/Rockbridge area is strongly discouraged at this time, regardless of location. While prior approval is not required, all travel should be logged in the Daily Attestation application.
