WSU announced Sunday it will launch an online quarantine and isolation tool while extending its request to avoid serving food and beverages at events, including sporting events.

The quarantine and isolation tool is a survey for faculty, staff and students to take if they have tested positive for COVID-19, have cold/flu-like symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive. The data from the surveys will be used as a way of monitoring COVID-19 cases across all WSU locations, according to WSU Insider

The ban on serving food and beverages at events will extend until Feb. 14. The ban was implemented last month to ensure attendees keep their masks on at all times while attending WSU events.
