University Operations Status

As of 10/07/2021

The University’s mask requirement is changing.  Beginning on Saturday, October 9, unvaccinated members of the campus community are required to wear masks or face coverings when indoors while those who have been vaccinated are not required to do so.  Masks are not required for anyone outdoors, when alone in offices, or when in one’s own residence room or suite. Social distancing while unmasked outdoors is encouraged.

The change in this requirement is in response to declining COVID-19 infections in Barbour County and on our campus. Currently, the University is tracking 1 student and 1 faculty and staff member who has recently tested positive for COVID-19. Limited close contact for prolonged periods is still recommended and is critical in preventing another spike in cases.  Should we see the number of cases increase again, the COVID-19 Response Team may once again change the mask requirements.
If you have not been vaccinated, please consider protecting yourself and others by getting your shot.  The University is planning to offer vaccines on campus sometime during the week of October 18.  A separate email will be sent inviting anyone who has not been vaccinated to make an appointment.
The vaccine is also readily available in our community.  Here are the vaccination clinics being held weekly in Barbour County.  You can call the Health Department at 304-457-1670 for more information.
