COVID-19 Updates

Be well. Be prepared.

This year has been unlike any other, but students, staff, and faculty alike stepped up to take vital prevention measures seriously and slow the spread of COVID-19. We welcome new and returning residents to join our continued commitment to the health and safety of everyone on campus. Follow health and safety precautions and remember to lies low, get tested, and isolate.

We are all in this together. Remember that this dynamic situation continues to be a stressful time for many members of our community. Be respectful and kind to one another. Check back regularly for the most current information, email specific questions to [email protected], and visit the Safe Campus website for more University information.

Campus Mask Guidelines

As of May 14, masks are no longer required indoors on campus if you are fully vaccinated (at least two weeks after a second Pfizer/Moderna dose or a single Johnson & Johnson dose). This policy applies to all Housing & Residential Life communities.

According to CDC guidance, continue wearing masks/face coverings if you are not fully vaccinated. 

Keeping our campus safe continues to be a community effort. If you haven’t been vaccinated yet, find a vaccine. People who are fully vaccinated may choose to continue wearing a mask, and we remind all residents to be respectful. 

Symptoms or Concerns?

Remember, those who contract COVID-19 are infectious beginning 48 hours before they develop symptoms—and some people never develop symptoms. DO NOT wait until you receive a positive test result to inform the University of your symptoms or exposure to an individual with the virus. Remain as isolated as possible in your assigned room to avoid spreading illness until you receive your test results and further direction from health professionals.

Quickly moving into isolation or quarantine housing is essential for reducing the spread of COVID-19 in our campus community, and University staff are here to support you. Current residents who are feeling ill or experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness of any kind—with fever and cough—should:

  1. remain as isolated as possible in your room to avoid spreading illness to others
  2. complete the Boynton Health screening form  
  3. visit MyBoynton to schedule covid testing (or contact a personal health care provider)
