The University of Wyoming has extended the pause of its phased fall return plan until Monday.

This was done in order to gather additional data about the prevalence of COVID-19 among the UW community.

The extension is necessary for UW leaders to receive and analyze results from its on-campus testing program and external providers in order to understand the level of COVID-19 transmission over the Labor Day weekend.

Since Tuesday’s public update on COVID-19 cases among the UW community, the university identified one new case of a student with symptoms who tested positive for COVID-19 Tuesday evening. That brings the number of active cases among the community to 70.
