Preventing the Spread of COVID

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), effective measures in preventing the spread of COVID-19 continue to be vaccinations, staying home when you are sick, and getting tested when sick or exposed to COVID.

We ask that all campus members assist with the prevention of the spread by staying home when they experience any onset of new COVID-19-like symptoms such as:

  • Ear pain
  • Nasal congestion or runny nose
  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • New loss of taste or smell
If You Test Positive

COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate

The university's COVID-19 vaccine requirement for students, faculty, and staff ended effective May 15, 2023, but we continue to strongly recommend COVID-19 vaccinations for all in our campus community as a safe, effective tool for minimizing the effects of COVID-19.
