COVID-19 Information

Someone I’ve been in close contact with tested positive for COVID-19, why didn’t I get a notification from WA Exposure Notifications?

WA Exposure Notifications is currently available only to students and employees at UW, and use is voluntary, so not everyone you are in contact with will be a user. Because of that it’s important to remember that you can be exposed to COVID-19 without receiving a notification from your phone. If you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, please review this information.

What should I do if my friend/roommate/classmate/colleague tests positive for COVID-19?

You can find information about what to do if you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 on the UW COVID-19 information page.

Where can I get tested for COVID-19?

You can find testing locations at UW here. You can find state-wide testing sites here.
