COVID-19 response planning


  • UWL is planning to offer a mix of in-person, online, and hybrid classes in the fall, following guidance from the CDC, La Crosse County Health Department, state leadership and the UW System. A UWL work group is planning a path forward that prioritizes health and safety. Mask wearing is required when students are not alone. Classes will be at reduced capacity to allow for physical distancing, more online options will be offered, and additional safety modifications will be made in classrooms to prevent the spread of COVID-19.



  • UWL is currently staffed with essential personnel with all other employees telecommuting. Employees should work with their supervisors to determine how these changes affect their work.
  • As of 5 p.m. Thursday, March 18 all building access was suspended for all employees except those identified as essential. Those needing access will be asked to work with their dean or vice chancellor.
