Based on guidance from the Washington State Department of Health, the Office of Financial Management, and Gov. Jay Inslee’s, Safe Start Washington Employer Requirements, WSU is implementing a system-wide COVID-19 employee attestation program beginning Monday, June 29, 2020.
Employees will be required to attest they are not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms prior to returning to a WSU work location. This attestation will be required each day the employee is reporting to a WSU work location.
Starting on June 29, a COVID-19 Employee Attestation tile will be added to all faculty and staff members’ my.wsu.edu employee homepage. All employees reporting to a WSU work location are to log in to myWSU and complete the attestation form. Instructions on completing the attestation form and FAQs are available on the HRS Employee COVID-19 Attestation page.
At this time, only employees directed to report to a WSU work location, in accordance with the WSU Employee Return to Work guide, are to do so.
Many WSU employees continue to work remotely. Only employees reporting to a WSU work location will be required to complete the attestation. Completion is not required when on leave, or working from a non-WSU work location.
Managers and supervisors will be responsible for reviewing attestation reports to ensure all employees working from a WSU work location have completed the required attestation. Additional information related to reporting will soon be available on the Employee Attestation webpage.
The university also is developing system attestation plans for students and visitors to WSU facilities, with details expected to be announced later as those plans are finalized.
