Penn State announces immediate COVID-19 masking at all campuses
August 4, 2021 — Due to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 conditions around the country and in Pennsylvania, effective immediately (Aug. 4), Penn State will require all students, faculty, staff and visitors — including those who are vaccinated and unvaccinated — to wear masks indoors at all campuses. Within the last 24 hours, many counties that are home to Penn State campuses have shifted to “orange” status, warranting an immediate adjustment to the University’s on-campus masking requirement.
Proof of vaccination
June 1, 2021 — Penn State is strongly encouraging students, faculty and staff to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and to share their vaccination status with the University after they receive their final dose.
Employees and World Campus students can now provide their vaccination status to the University using SalesForce Health Cloud, a secure online platform for collecting health data. A step-by-step guide to help the University’s employees with submission is available as well via the COVID-19 Vaccination webpage on the Return to Work website.
Students can upload their vaccination records through myUHS.
After providing proof of vaccination, students and employees who wish to participate in the University’s vaccine incentive program must also complete an online form to become eligible for the weekly drawings. Students who have previously submitted their proof of vaccination and wish to opt into the incentive program also must complete this form.
The latest vaccination information for University community members is available on Penn State’s virus information website.
Whether on campus or working from home, our staff is available to serve students by email and phone. Please see the campus directory for contact information.
