To our campus community,

In preparation for the start of classes we want to update you on our COVID-19 safety protocols for the fall semester. Given the effectiveness and widespread availability of vaccines and boosters and based on the latest guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), effective Tuesday, August 9, masks will be optional on campus.

We recognize and appreciate that some members of the community will choose to continue wearing a mask. That is consistent with CDC recommendations to wear a well-fitting mask indoors in public, regardless of vaccination status when levels are high. Free masks are available at the information desk in the Student Center. Do what is best for you while respecting the choices of others!
Please remember that vaccination plus booster shots offer the absolute best protection against serious illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19. We continue to provide free vaccinations and boosters for students, faculty and staff at CSU Health and Wellness Services by appointment at the Center for Innovation in Medical Professions, Suite 205 (2112 Euclid Avenue). For other area locations offering free vaccines and booster shots, visit

COVID-19 testing is also available by appointment at the Center. Call 216-687-3649 to schedule appointments for testing, vaccination and boosters.

We understand that some members of our community may be immunocompromised or unable to be vaccinated and may need to discuss learning or work-related accommodations. Students should contact the Office of Disability Services at or 216-687-2015 and review this information. Faculty and staff should consult with their supervisor and Human Resources at or 216-687- 3636.
We will continue to monitor and adapt our safety efforts based on guidance from the CDC and public health officials and keep you updated on any changes.
Thank you for helping keep our community safe. We look forward to seeing you back on campus!
