Marshall University COVID-19 Response The Office of Environmental Health and Safety is announcing the following update regarding the COVID-19 response for the Spring 2023 semester. Following the state of West Virginia’s decision to end the State of Emergency for the COVID-19 pandemic, Marshall University has announced the closure of the on-campus COVID-19 clinic. COVID-19 testing and vaccines remain readily available at clinics and retail pharmacies throughout the area, including the Cabell-Huntington Health Department and Marshall Health clinics and pharmacy locations. As the university transitions its response, the COVID19@marshall.edu e-mail will shift to an automated response providing the current COVID-19 guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The e-mail will continue to be monitored by the university’s COVID-19 Response Team. Marshall University employees should continue notify their immediate supervisors of a COVID-19 diagnosis for departmental guidance. Students living in the residence halls who receive a positive COVID-19 diagnosis should contact the on-call area coordinator at 304-962-6559 to determine the best practice for isolation/quarantine. Any student needing an illness excuse should contact the Office of Student Affairs. In addition, Physical Plant will begin to remove barricades in classrooms and common areas in the month of January. Individual offices and suites may begin to remove their individual barricades at this time. If offices would like to keep their barricades to use in the future, they may store them in their departmental storage. For those locations wanting to permanently remove the barricades, a work order may be placed with the Physical Plant to pick up the barricades. Barricades removed via the Work Order system will not be returned.
