Amid ‘COVID fatigue,’ Western launches student-to-student safety campaign

Western Washington University and a student government organization there will soon launch a social media campaign to help young adults take steps to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Called “COVID-19 in Real Life,” it now has 13 messages meant to reach college students ages 18 to 26 years old, Associated Students spokesman Hunter Stuehm said.

Western already has been aggressively messaging what it calls the three Ws — wash your hands, watch your distance and wear your mask, according to Sislena Ledbetter, executive director for counseling, health and wellness at WWU.
