GSU continues to monitor updates from local, state, and national organizations in relation to COVID-19. Updated information is available below and in the page menus.
Glenville State is not requiring testing prior to arrival on campus; however, students and employees are encouraged to take advantage of at-home tests and/or community testing clinics both before and throughout the semester.
COVID-19 tests are available through the local health department, retail locations (including the Pioneer Campus Store), and for free through the federal government’s website, covidtests.gov.
Students who are symptomatic and need to travel for testing should not ride the campus shuttle.
Reporting & Isolation
Students, faculty, and staff are not required to report positive COVID test results to the University, but they are expected to follow CDC guidelines for isolation and to notify close contacts.
Any student who tests positive for COVID should work with their healthcare provider to discuss a plan of action. In the event students are absent from classes due to COVID, they should refer to their course syllabi for attendance policy guidelines and inform their instructors as soon as possible.
Glenville State has discontinued its COVID-19 case dashboard. Visit the WV DHHR COVID hub for state case data.
Masks are not required but may be worn at individual discretion. Disposable masks and hand sanitizer are still available around campus.
COVID-19 vaccinations are encouraged, but not required, of all members of the Glenville State University campus community. Vaccination is the leading prevention strategy to protect individuals from COVID-19. The vaccines are safe and effective, available at no cost, and widely available.
