CALS-specific information on the Badger Badge facility monitoring

A recent e-mail from the Office of the Chancellor highlighted that individual buildings, including those off-campus, “may choose to limit access to their facilities based on compliance with testing requirements.” Within the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, there will be no college-wide monitoring program beyond the centralized Badger Wellness Ambassador monitoring at buildings on the main campus with the most in-person courses and activities.

Any decisions to further monitor access will be at the discretion of the individual CALS facility. If you have questions about access to your building, you may contact your building manager, department chair, center director or unit administrator. Established protocols regarding requests to lock a building remain in place. Questions about facility monitoring or building access should be directed to Assistant Dean for Facilities, Planning, Health & Safety Doug Sabatke.

Agricultural Research Station locations will not participate in the Badger Badge program, in part because the tests are only available on the UW-Madison campus and implementation of this program at the station locations would be extremely impractical. ARS locations continue to follow the same public health measures already in place.
