Important Information for WCTC Students and Staff
Waukesha County Technical College (WCTC) continues to monitor the spread of the respiratory disease COVID-19, or coronavirus. This includes the review of resources and guidance provided by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever and respiratory issues, which can appear two to 14 days after initial exposure. Coronavirus spread easily and causes mild illness in most people.
