Health and Safety Precautions
The University's current requirements — that all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, are expected to wear masks and practice physical distancing inside buildings and on public transportation — remain in place through June 28, the last day of Summer Session I.
In addition, unvaccinated individuals are expected to continue to wear masks and practice physical distancing while outdoors. Vaccinated individuals, however, are not currently required to wear masks or practice physical distancing while outside.
After June 28, fully vaccinated individuals at Penn State will no longer be required to wear face masks indoors, and the physical distancing and outdoor masking requirements will be lifted for all individuals. The use of face masks will still be required for all people while using public transportation, in accordance with CDC guidance, and in some additional settings such as when visiting on-campus health care facilities and when conducting in-person research involving human subjects.
In alignment with this CDC guidance, Penn State will continue to require non-vaccinated individuals to wear masks inside University buildings at all times after June 28.
In-person/online classes resume Monday, August 23.
For students who are immunocompromised or at-risk, the University will work with you to develop appropriate accommodations. For students who are unable to return to campus this fall or are unable to wear a face mask due to medical conditions, there are flexible options so that you can continue to make progress toward your degree.
