Summer 2021 

While we continue planning for the fall in earnest, summer classes and activities are already in full swing.  

The following mitigation measures are in effect for Summer/Fall 2021.

  • Outdoors- Fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear face coverings. Non-vaccinated individuals are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings for their safety and the safety of others when within 6 (six) feet of other individuals.
  •  Indoors/Meetings- Fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear face coverings in common spaces or private offices.  Non-vaccinated individuals are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings for their safety and the safety of others when within 6 (six) feet of other individuals.
  •  Vaccination status– according to the CDC, an individual is considered fully vaccinated 14 days after the 2nd dose of a two-dose vaccine (Moderna and Pfizer) or 14 days after a one-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson). The IMT encourages vaccination for all members of the campus community who are able to be vaccinated.  In the Lancaster area, individuals can register for an appointment by using the online portal at https://vaccinatelancaster.org/.  Elsewhere, individuals can find a vaccination site at Vaccines.gov - Search for COVID-19 vaccine locations
  • Privacy– Millersville is currently not requiring the COVID-19 vaccine, although it is highly recommended.  Students who have received the COVID-19 vaccine should provide Health Services with a copy of their vaccine card.  Employees who have been vaccinated will not be asked to provide this information.  Supervisors and employees should not ask their employees and coworkers whether they have been vaccinated. Likewise, faculty and staff should not ask students about their vaccination status.  Regarding face coverings, please respect the decision of some individuals who are fully vaccinated who wish to continue to wear them in public or private settings.

To report concerns or ask questions confidentially, email reportcovid@millersville.edu 

Check back often for updates.
