Effective October 15, 2021:

Access to campus, university facilities, and buildings for visitors and employees: University System campuses and buildings, in general, are open. Visitors — along with students, staff, and faculty — are currently required to wear face coverings, at all times, indoors at this time, regardless of vaccination status.

Many events or activities for which visitors would come to campus also will require evidence of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test.

For more information about face coverings, vaccination requirements, and other such protocols, please visit the UMS Community Guidance For Everyone page.
