COVID-19 Updates

The UMKC Women’s Center is #RooReady to assist our students this fall semester. Our office will be open our regular hours (10 am – 4 pm, Monday – Thursday and 10 am – 3 pm Friday). A number of safety measures will be in place to ensure the safety of our visitors and our staff while in the Women’s Center:

  • Plexiglas has been placed at the front desk.
  • All visitors will be asked to check in at the front desk to record their contact information for contact tracing.
  • At the close of each day, Women’s Center staff will clean and sanitize the Center using hospital-grade supplies provided by Campus Facilities.
  • All visitors to the Women’s Center will be required to wear masks while in the Center.

Women’s Center programs during the fall semester will be delivered via a mix of in-person and virtual. Events will be listed on Roo Groups (https://roogroups.umkc.edu/organization/womenscenter), on the Women’s Center website, or on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pg/umkcwomenc/events/). Please check these pages often for the most up-to-date event details.

All staff working in the Women’s Center will be asked to assess their health prior their shift. Any staff person exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms must report this to their supervisor and will be instructed to stay home and contact their primary care physician. These plans may be modified at any time as we receive updates from the university regarding the Return to Campus plan. All UMKC campus health and safety policies and guidelines apply in the Women’s Center, including the UMKC mask policy, and distancing, cleaning, and illness guidelines.
