Masking and physical distancing

Posted by on Tuesday, May 25, 2021 in .

Following revised  CDC recommendations  indicating that fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks or physically distance, we are updating many protocols.

Fully vaccinated peopleindividuals two weeks past their second dose in a two-dose vaccine such as Pfizer or Moderna, or two weeks past their single-dose of Johnson & Johnsonno longer need to wear a face mask/covering in any setting on campus, indoors or outdoors, or maintain physical distancing from other fully vaccinated people.  

People who are not fully vaccinated should continue to wear a mask and maintain physical distancing from others at all times when indoorsand when outdoors if physical distancing cannot be maintained. 

The university expects that many members of our campus community will continue to wear face masks/coverings, and the university supports their choice to do so. People who choose to wear masks should not be questioned about them, nor should they be discouraged or prohibited from wearing them.  

Faculty and staff who believe they require a workplace accommodation in light of this change in protocol are encouraged to contact the Equal Opportunity and Access officeStudents who believe they require an accommodation are encouraged to contact Student Access. 

Other Scenarios

Staff breakrooms and shared eating areas can reopen in keeping with CDC protocols. Those fully vaccinated can eat in shared spaces while those not vaccinated should maintain physical distancing.
