School of Social Work COVID-19 Information & Resources

The School of Social Work developed these pages to provide resources and tools to help our faculty, staff and students stay informed and remain productive during the COVID-19 pandemic. For the latest University-wide updates, go to the UW FAQs and the UW Novel Coronavirus & COVID-19: Facts and Resources page as well as the UW Back-to-School and the UW Back-to-the-Workplace pages.

Access to COVID-19 exposure app extended to UW employees
Faculty and staff now have the opportunity to receive early access to a new COVID-19 exposure notification app, available to students since early November. This pilot project will help the Washington State Department of Health fine tune the mobile app before making it available state-wide. If you are interested in participating, you can download the app at wanotify.uw.edu/uw.

UW provides guidance on nonessential holiday travel
In conjunction with Governor Inslee’s statewide travel advisory issued in mid-November, the University Advisory Committee on Communicable Diseases has issued a communication advising against all nonessential travel, including holiday travel. If you choose to travel out of state, please plan ahead and adhere to state and UW guidelines. Read the travel advisory here

The School of Social Work recently completed a Back-to-School/Back-to-Work survey of students, faculty and staff. The survey included questions regarding access to technology, level of support for professional and personal care, and preferences for future telework plans. In total, 258 members of the School community participated in the survey. Select the link above to view questions, responses and comments to the complete survey.
