UW-W Symphonic Wind Ensemble Students & Faculty Self-Quarantined After Carnegie Hall Performance

The following announcement was issued on 3/11/20 by UW-W Marketing & Communications

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater was notified by the Walworth County Public Health Department on Wednesday, March 11, that New York state has been identified as a high-risk location for contracting COVID-19 or coronavirus, and that those who have visited the state of New York should voluntarily self-quarantine for 14 days to prevent the potential spread of the virus upon their return.

UW-Whitewater’s Symphonic Wind Ensemble performed at New York City’s famed Carnegie Hall on Tuesday evening and the group of 55 people will arrive back on campus today. We are asking that all those on the trip comply with the Walworth County Public Health Department’s suggestion to self-quarantine for 14 days.

Students will be picked up by family members and taken home for the self-quarantine period of time. One student needs housing for three days and that will be provided by the university in an already-established quarantine room. UW-Whitewater will provide for their care.

The faculty who went on that trip will also self-quarantine in their homes. We will be following up with information on continuing the students’ studies.

The health and safety of our campus community is our primary concern and we appreciate the effort and cooperation of our students, faculty and their families in this important matter.
