D&E COVID-19 statistics

The cooperative effort to maintain a safe and healthy campus is the top priority at D&E. 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.

Actions required for May 2021 graduates

Details and requirements are available for students graduating in May, including:

  • students who have not applied for May 2021 Graduation must contact Amelia Rossi at rossia@dewv.edu or by calling Ext. 1280
  • Countdown to Commencement meetings are scheduled for Tuesday, March 2, and Wednesday, March 3, from 2-4 p.m.; location to be announced

Masks are still mandatory! Don’t relax!

Students are reminded that masks are still mandatory in the classroom on the D&E campus. While vaccine distribution is proceeding nationwide, COVID-19 vaccinations are still not yet available to college student populations in West Virginia. A safe and healthy campus means students must continue to be diligent wearing face masks, practicing social distancing, washing hands frequently, and refraining from gathering in large groups. Serious disciplinary actions have occurred this academic year for violation of safety protocols on campus. If you see a violation of the College Code of Conduct, you can report it using this form.

Random, mandatory COVID-19 testing on campus

Each week 10% of the campus community (students, faculty, and staff) are required to be tested for COVID-19. 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.

Your full cooperation is appreciated.

Level 1 and Level 2 account holds must be resolved

Any students with a Level 1 or Level 2 hold on their accounts must resolve those holds prior to Class Registration Day on March 16. Check the Self-Service portal for status of student accounts.

Residential students should complete D&E meal service form

Any residential student who has not already done so should complete the meal service form. Information from this completed form will be used in case the student is placed in isolation or quarantine due to COVID-19 exposure.

COVID-19 cases on the D&E campus continue to decrease, and the commitment to health and safety among students is deeply appreciated. However, there have been scattered reports that some students have relaxed face mask wearing and COVID-19 safety measures. Students are urged to continue adherence to D&E safety protocols, including wearing masks, social distancing, hand washing, etc. Thank you for this continued commitment and stay safe.
