The Start of the 2022-2023 Academic Year
As we get ready to start our new year, we know COVID-19 is still present. However, scientific advances have brought us to a place where COVID-19 is no longer defining how we live, learn, and engage on campus. We expect to continue to have cases and we will continue to follow CDC guidance. While there is no mask requirement on campus, individuals may choose to wear a mask at any time. When the Adair County COVID-19 Community Level is high, everyone is encouraged to wear a mask in indoor public spaces. To minimize the spread of COVID-19 on campus, everyone is also encouraged to be current on their COVID-19 vaccinations and to test prior to returning to campus.
Masks are optional on campus. Those who prefer to wear masks should continue to do so. Individuals may require others to wear masks in their personal office or workspace but must provide masks if needed.

While all students and employees are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated, there is no vaccination requirement at this time.
