Student COVID-19 Information

Western Dakota Technical College's (WDT) current student COVID-19 protocol:
  • Reporting COVID-19-like symptoms:
    • Students who are fully vaccinated (including the two-week window after the final dose) will no longer be required to report COVID-19 symptoms or close contacts with someone with COVID-19.
    • Students who are not vaccinated or in the process of completing their full vaccination (including the two-week window after the final dose) will continue reporting* COVID-19 symptoms and close contacts and will be required to test, isolate, and/or quarantine per CDC guidelines. (Reporting information below.)
  • Wearing masks/face coverings:
    • Masks will not be required on the WDT campus. Masks are strongly recommended for students who have not completed their vaccination process and are certainly optional for anyone at any time while on the WDT campus. We will continue making them available.
  • Social Distancing:
    • We will no longer be required to maintain six feet of space between people. It is recommended to maintain 3 feet of distance between people at this time.
  • Hand Washing:
    • No change with this requirement. We will maintain our handwashing and hand sanitizing protocols.
  • Sanitizing:
    • We will continue high levels of sanitizing, including sanitizing rooms and offices after a known COVID-19 case, as well as high levels of sanitizing in bathrooms and all other areas of campus.
If the situation with COVID-19 requires changes to the protocols listed above, students will be notified. Please continue to watch your student emails for any updates.

*COVID-19 reporting and for more information:
(Student privacy is very important and all applicable FERPA rules will be followed.)
