Washington State University
WELCOME BACK, COUGS.
The best way to kick off the spring semester is to take an arrival COVID‑19 test and complete the 10‑Day Challenge for #CougsCancelCOVID. Details are provided below.
ARRIVAL TESTING
All students living in Pullman are strongly encouraged to take advantage of COVID‑19 arrival testing.

Those who are required to take an arrival test include:
  • Students living in WSU residence halls or WSU‑owned apartments.
  • Students who work on campus.
  • Students who have in-person activities, classes, or appointments, including athletic programs.
  • Students who plan to access any campus facilities (e.g., dining facilities, CUB, Chinook Student Center, recreation facilities, SPARK).

To reduce wait times and increase safety, please complete the following steps prior to your arrival COVID‑19 test:
  • Print and complete the required information on the arrival testing form. You must wait to sign the form until you are on site and present identification (e.g., your CougarCard).
  • Complete the WSU attestation on the WSU Mobile app the day you get tested, before you arrive at the testing location. You will be asked to show your attestation upon arrival.
  • Verify/update your address in myWSU with your current Pullman address.
  • Students who do not yet have a CougarCard will need to upload a photo of themselves. They will be able to pick up their card during the arrival testing process.
10‑DAY CHALLENGE
If all of our Coug community members spend their first 10 days on campus paying extra attention to health guidelines, we can significantly decrease the spread of COVID‑19.

After you arrive in Pullman and complete your arrival test, spend your next 10 days being EXTRA cautious:
  • Build your pod of 5 people or less and limit your in‑person activities to your pod. Your roommates count as part of your pod.
  • Only participate in essential activities and errands, like getting food or going to your job.
  • Wear your mask and maintain physical distancing.
  • Keep your spaces and hands clean.

Everyone needs to take the 10‑Day Challenge, whether they have had COVID‑19 or not.
