Please review the following guidelines as you begin planning your trips to campus for services.

  1. COVID Safety: The campus Environmental Safety department is working hard to keep our campus clean and safe from possible COVID transmission. Here in the clinic, we are also taking all precautions to keep our clients, students and staff safe so we can continue to provide you with services. Regardless of vaccination status, we are implementing the following:
    1. Clinic staff and clinicians are required to wear masks in common areas according to WCU policy.

    3. We ask that you maintain 6ft. between individuals in all clinic common areas.
