The cooperative effort to maintain a safe and healthy campus is the top priority at D&E. It should be noted that in over three weeks we have only faced one positive case, zero in the past two week-period – amidst vast testing of the general campus community and intensive testing of many of our student athletes.  In an effort to provide a complete picture about the status of COVID-19 on campus, click here for updated 2021 COVID data and click here for updated vaccination data.

Random, mandatory COVID-19 testing on campus

This has been mandated by the State of West Virginia and utilizes the VAULT saliva-based PCR test instrument. If you receive an email indicating you have been selected to test, you are required to comply.
