• We all need to do our part to help keep each other safe and expect all members of our community to follow the health and safety guidelines outlined here and to practice everyday preventive actions to limit your risk. 

    Masks are encouraged and optional on campus. Wearing a mask is strongly recommended and no longer required in indoor campus spaces, with limited exceptions as follows: 

    • Student Health Services, Student Disability Services, and COVID testing sites
    • Following recovery from a recent infection or after a close exposure to an infected individual, based on university policy

      Visit our data dashboard for updates about the vaccination, testing, and positivity rates on our campus.

      Guiding Principles

      • Adjust, as needed, based on campus and overall conditions

        Could include adjustments to mask and test requirements, guests

      • Vaccination policy guided by CDC and NYS DOH

        The university will evaluate and update vaccination policies, particularly if and when the definition of up-to-date changes.

      • Respect mask choice

        While our campus shifts to an environment of encouraged and optional mask wearing, the university strongly supports anyone who wishes to wear a mask at any time, in any place, and for any reason. Wearing a mask does not indicate one’s vaccination, infection, or exposure status. Similarly, no one can force someone else to wear a mask when and where university policy makes it optional.

      Students who violate guidelines will be referred for disciplinary action through the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards.
