To our campus community,

As we prepare to enter the summer semester and the warm weather, there continues to be good news in our fight against COVID-19 and its many mutations.

In line with CDC guidelines and given that Cuyahoga County is currently rated as “low risk,” effective Saturday, May 21, masks will no longer be required in our classrooms and laboratories. 
Please know that you are always welcome to wear a mask if that makes you more comfortable. We encourage you to do what is best for you and respect the choices of others. You may wish to communicate to your colleagues and friends that you prefer them to wear a mask when interacting with you. We urge all of you to respect those wishes.
If you have COVID-19 symptoms or have tested positive, we do ask that you stay home and don't come to campus until you've fully recovered. The CDC recommends that COVID-positive people isolate at home for 5 days after symptoms develop, and wear a mask for an additional 5 days when you return to classes, work or public places.

As a reminder: vaccination plus a booster shot continues to offer the absolute best protection against serious illness, hospitalization or death from COVID-19, and we continue to provide free vaccinations and booster shots for students, faculty and staff at CSU Health and Wellness Services. Vaccinations and boosters are now offered every Wednesday by appointment in Room 205 at the Center for Innovation in Medical Professions (2112 Euclid Avenue). Call 216-687-3649 to schedule your appointment.
COVID-19 testing is still available on campus in the Center for Innovation in Medical Professions building, however appointments are now required. Testing has moved upstairs to Room 205. Students, faculty and staff can call 216-687-3649 to schedule a COVID test.

As always, we will continue to monitor and act upon changes in COVID-19 guidance from public health officials and the CDC, and will share any further changes to our protocols with you as conditions evolve.

Thank you for helping keep our campus community safe, and for all that you continue to do for CSU each and every day. 

Your CSU Leadership Team
