The COVID-19 drop box will be available for WSU employees to either submit proof of COVID vaccination, remote work exception request or a vaccination exemption request beginning Nov. 29, 2021. The deadline to submit documentation is no later than Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2022.
In accordance with Executive Order 14042, all Wichita State employees (including temporary, part-time, full-time and student employees) will be required to be fully vaccinated, unless eligible for a medical or religious exemption or a remote work exception.
The mandatory vaccination obligations apply even to those covered employees who are working remotely (if they are working on or in connection with a covered contract or are fulfilling any work obligations at any time on university property).
Compliance with the vaccine requirement is a condition of employment at WSU. Employees who are not fully vaccinated or do not receive approval for a medical or religious exemption or a remote work exception may be prohibited from engaging in work after the deadline. Further failure to comply will be addressed consistent with university policies and procedures, which may include corrective action up to and including separation.
