Testing Policy

Employees with an approved medical/religious exemption must show proof of a negative test within 72 hours each time coming to campus.  Employees who are vaccinated, but not yet eligible to receive the booster shot, are no longer required to show proof of a negative when entering the campus.

Remember: All full- and part-time non classified employees are required to receive the booster shot within one month of becoming eligible and must provide verification of the booster to Human Resources to remain in compliance with the Council on Postsecondary Education COVID vaccine/booster policy. 

Mask/Face Covering Guidance

Masking is optional for all employees and students. We strongly encourage individuals who are not yet vaccinated or have an approved medical/religious exemption to continue to wear a high-quality (KN95 or N95) mask. And, we strongly support and respect all individuals who choose to continue to wear a mask to protect themselves and others.
