The following message was distributed to students and employees on Jan. 7, 2022. 

To the Webster University Community,

As we begin the new year, we are reminding our community to be diligent to support the University’s health protocols, rules that have kept coronavirus infections in our classrooms to among the lowest among all institutions of higher education in the St. Louis region. These protocols include wearing mask indoors, socially distancing, staying home when experiencing symptoms of illness, and getting vaccinated.  

We should continue to optimize preventive measures.  Currently, the University does not require booster shots but is encouraging students, faculty and staff to consider getting a booster.  A full list of protocols can be found online for faculty and staff employees and for students. Students who have tested positive for COVID or are a close contact should email health@webster.edu. Faculty and staff employees should report via the incident reporting form.  In addition, we ask that plans for in-person events and gatherings be reviewed for possible adjustments including holding parts of events outdoors when the weather warms up, using virtual meeting options, and strengthening communication about and adherence to Webster’s health protocols. 

The University is closely monitoring the latest developments regarding the coronavirus. Please continue to watch Webster Today or the University’s COVID-19 page for possible future changes in policy or potential on-campus booster clinics.

We are confident that our community adherence to these protocols will continue to keep Webster University safe and we look forward to a productive Spring Semester.

The Task Force on Transition and Adaptability
