Campus changes due to COVID-19

June 15, 2021

At the University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita, the health and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and the community are paramount. The university continues to monitor COVID-19 as we follow the guidance of the KU Medical Center.

Operations

Our administrative offices are open with limited staff. Please call before planning a trip to our campus.

The only public entrance is the clinic entrance off of Minneapolis Street. All other exterior entrances are badge accessible only. In addition, all incoming freight deliveries and non-food deliveries will be directed to the receiving dock.

Masks must be worn inside campus buildings, and employees must wear masks when outside of their individual workspaces (in public and common areas) and when interacting with others.

Patient Care

Our clinics are open at this time, and precautionary measures continue to be implemented. Get details from KU Wichita Medical Practice Association, which manages our clinics. The JayDoc Community Clinic is also seeing patients.

Events & Art Galleries

Indoor and outdoor events on campus are permissible, but only "to go" food is allowed for indoor events. There are no food restrictions for outdoor events. Our William J. Reals Galleries of Art and First Friday events have resumed, following the food restriction.

Research

Masks and appropriate PPE are still required in all research labs, though occupancy restrictions are lifted.

Ongoing Updates

COVID-19 is not gone. We must continue to take precautions to move to a healthier way of life. We continue to recommend vaccinations, masking and voluntary distancing. If you have additional questions, please contact our Public Affairs Office.
