Campus Updates and Communications
Classrooms to Return to Regular Capacities, Further Details Coming Soon
Starting this fall, all classrooms on campus will operate under their original usage guidelines.
Based on a variety of factors, including a decrease in the number of active cases, an increase in vaccination rates, and updated guidance from the CDC, classrooms will return to their usual capacities beginning Fall 2021. This will permit all in-person classes that had to adopt a hybrid format to meet COVID protocols to return to an in-person format. All activities may also be conducted in an in-person format.
University Mask Mandate
As you are probably aware, the CDC modified its mask guidance on May 13, 2021 and updated it on May 16, 2021.
Consistent with keeping campus safety as a primary focus, our existing University COVID protocols, including the mask mandate for all buildings on campus, will remain in place until we establish a vaccination verification process. Masks are not required to be worn outdoors on campus.
