Our Way Forward

The Our Way Forward website is transitioning from the main point of Wake Forest’s COVID-19 information to a site that directs community members to relevant COVID-19 information on the websites of appropriate campus departments.

Part of the move from pandemic to endemic is recognizing COVID, like flu or other seasonal viruses, as part of our lives. We believe that the changes announced after the spring semester address this reality, while still leaving us in a strong position to pivot if public health guidance indicates a different approach is necessary.

Thank you for all you are doing to help keep our community healthy.
