According to the CDC, getting vaccinated prevents severe illness, hospitalizations, and death. Unvaccinated people may choose to get vaccinated and should continue masking until they are fully vaccinated and in accordance with campus regulations (currently requiring universal masking). With the Delta variant, masking and vaccinations are more urgent than ever. CDC has updated guidance for fully vaccinated people based on new evidence on the Delta variant. Please contact your health care provider for specific, personal needs.
- Wear a face covering when indoors and if you must be in a crowded outdoor setting.
- Stay home if you are experiencing symptoms.
- Get tested.
- Practice good hygeine. Wash your hands regularly and keep your fingers out of your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Maintain social distance and avoid crowded areas.
