    Why Get Vaccinated?

    COVID-19 vaccines can help you protect yourself and others. The more people who are vaccinated in our community, the more likely the university will be able to lift the restrictions that are in place to protect the health of everyone at the university. Here’s a summary of the university’s current guidelines, based on vaccination status:

    Vaccinated Individuals

    • With the recent spike in COVID-19 cases and the rise of the delta variant, vaccinated individuals must wear masks while indoors.
    • The daily COVID-19 check-in app is no longer required.
    • Quarantine is no longer required for vaccinated individuals who come in contact with someone who has COVID-19, unless they test positive for COVID-19.

    Unvaccinated Individuals

    • Mask or face coverings are required when indoors and outside when in the presence of others.
    •  Random testing for COVID-19 is required for individuals who have not been vaccinated.
    • Use of the daily check-in app is required if individuals experience symptoms of COVID-19.
    • Quarantine is required for unvaccinated individuals who have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19 or who have tested positive.
