By: | July 8, 2021

The University has reached a 90 percent overall COVID-19 vaccination rate for students, faculty and staff currently engaged in on-campus activity, Russell Carey ’91 MA’06, executive vice president of planning and policy, wrote in an email to the community.

After a year of pandemic restrictions and policies, the milestone ushers in the beginning of the University’s return to normal operations.

Effective immediately, the University will no longer require fully vaccinated individuals to wear masks while on campus, both indoors and outdoors. Neither students nor professors, assuming vaccination, will be required to wear masks during in-person classes.
