UW System President Ray Cross Memo

“In addition to providing UWSA employees with the most current information regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) assessment, prevention and treatment efforts, we also want to provide a clear understanding regarding the flow of information and questions coming to and from employees, managers, and the various departments and organizations throughout the system.

The UW System’s Emergency Operation Center (EOC), which includes a team of health, risk, international security, emergency management, legal counsel and communication experts, has been serving as the main information-sharing body on issues, policies, and all things COVID-19 as it relates to the UW System.”   -UW System President Ray Cross
