Complete WSU Attestation Form before accessing campus
ALL campus members and visitors must complete the WSU Attestation form at attestation.wsu.edu before accessing campus. This is required to be completed before coming to campus each day.
Student requirements for accessing campus
A few in-person services will remain open on campus for students. To access campus, students must complete the following requirements:
Complete the student attestation form on myWSU prior to arriving on campus
Check-in at the main entrance to the Floyd Building (required regardless of campus building you want to access – including The Bookie, Cougar Cupboard and CIC building)
Cougar Cupboard, The Bookie, CIC computers/study tables
After following those first two steps:
To access the Cougar Cupboard, use the exterior entrance on the side of the East Building nearest the building’s connection to the Floyd Building (Cougar Cupboard sign is on the entrance door) – knock or call the number on the sign before entering
To access The Bookie, use the west entrance to the East Building (signs will be posted).
To access computers in CIC entryway or study tables in the CIC Art Gallery, use the entrance closest to the CIC parking lot

Masks and social distancing required on campus
The wearing of masks and social distancing are required on campus by all campus members and visitors.
Exceptions for mask wearing include: when working alone in an office, vehicle, or at a job site; if the individual is deaf or hard of hearing, or is communicating with someone who relies on language cues such as facial markers and expression and mouth movements as a part of communication; if the individual has a medical condition or disability that makes wearing a facial covering inappropriate; or when the job has no in-person interaction.
Campus safety signage
A range of safety and best practice signage will be installed prior to any return to in-person campus learning/operations. These range from social distancing and mask wearing requirements, to protocol for services areas and bathrooms, etc.
Signage will be installed to indicate pathway directional travel through the hallways and in common and service areas to increase social distancing once we are able to return to campus.
All campus reopening plans are being coordinated with both the WSU system and the local health district to ensure the safety of our students and employees. As conditions improve, we will continue to discuss reopening plans with the system and the health district.
Event Determination Form for in-person on- and off-campus events
Until further notice, all university events, whether hosted on university property or off-site, will require review by the WSU Tri-Cities Environmental Health and Safety Office and approval by the WSU Tri-Cities incident command team.
Virtual-only events and virtual-only conferences will not require this approval. The approval process is designed to help ensure the safety of our students, faculty, staff, and guests.
On-campus COVID-19 testing has been arranged through the Benton-Franklin Health District. The testing site will be staffed by personnel from the Pasco Fire Department and local healthcare and EMS workers from Columbia Safety.
Testing will be provided free of charge to WSU Tri-Cities students, employees, and their immediate families.
First testing event Tuesday, Nov. 17 – 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. in CIC

Additional testing events every Tuesday through Dec. 8
Additional testing events are planned every Tuesday until Dec. 8 at the same times, with locations to be determined based on demand. Locations for additional testing events will be announced soon.
Testing is intended for asymptomatic individuals, meaning those who do not currently have symptoms.
