COVID-19 Resources

Face Coverings


In line with New York state’s decision to follow the new federal guidance about mask wearing and social distancing, effective Wednesday, May 19, 2021 on campus:

  • People who’ve been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 do not need to wear masks or maintain physical distancing, indoors or out, with some exceptions. Fully vaccinated means you are at least two weeks past your final dose of a two-dose vaccine or two weeks past the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
  • Exceptions include health care settings, such as the Health and Counseling center on campus, some York Wellness and Rehabilitation Institute health clinic situations, and public transportation.
  • People who are immunocompromised or not fully vaccinated should continue to wear masks and maintain 6-foot social distancing. Anyone else who wishes to wear a mask may do so. Be respectful of everyone.
  • Social distancing: In settings on campus where vaccination status isn’t known, 6-foot distancing continues.

Documentation: See COVID-19 vaccine requirement.
