University COVID-19 Policy Updates
On Aug. 2, 2021, the Office of the Provost sent out a communication announcing an update to the University’s masking policy. Effective Aug. 3, 2021, and until further notice, all students, employees, and visitors must wear face coverings/masks over their nose and mouth when they are in public spaces inside all University buildings. While outdoors, masks are not required unless otherwise indicated by the University.
On Aug. 26, 2021, Vice-Chancellor Reuben Brigety sent out a letter to the campus community that COVID-19 vaccinations will be required for all students, faculty, and staff. The campus-wide COVID-19 vaccination requirement goes into full effect on Oct. 5, 2021. By that date, all students, faculty, and staff must have received either both shots of a two-dose regimen (for Pfizer and Moderna) or the single-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Exceptions will be made for legitimate medical and religious reasons.
On Aug. 31, 2021, the Office of Public Health sent an email to all University students that they will be screen tested through Friday, Sept. 3.
