COVID-19 update: Gov. Evers’ executive order, reminder about the university’s changed alert level and importance of contact tracing

On Tuesday, Nov. 10, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers issued Executive Order #94. The order includes a list of recommendations for mitigating the spread of COVID-19.

On Friday, Nov. 6, Marquette raised its COVID-19 alert level from Moderate to High. A series of related steps and information was shared via Marquette Today that directly mirror the Governor’s recommendations and are in-line with the new order. 

Marquette’s Recovery Plan has been approved by the City of Milwaukee Health Department and was developed in accordance with medical and government guidelines. The university is in regular communication with the City of Milwaukee Health Department and State of Wisconsin. Marquette continues to maintain campus spaces according to those guidelines; current in-person classes will continue.

Lastly, the university asks all students to please cooperate with the contact tracing process on campus.

  • If you test positive for COVID-19 off-campus, complete the self-disclosure form. It’s important to provide your close contacts to further decrease transmission on campus.
  • If you are contacted by the Marquette Medical Clinic for contact tracing, please take a few moments to provide contacts and answer a series of questions—this is a key step in reducing the spread of the virus. Your demonstration of cura personalis—care for the person—in this moment is important.

By working with the Medical Clinic staff / assisting with contact tracing efforts, you are helping to protect others on campus and reduce the risk for your fellow students, faculty and staff as well as their families.
