  • Am I required to get the COVID-19 vaccine?

    Not at this time, but it is highly recommended.

  • If I have been fully vaccinated, do I need to wear a face mask on campus?

    Masks continue to be required in designated areas, such as health care facilities, including Wright State Physicians and the psychiatry clinic. If you are unsure if masks are required, please call ahead or inquire upon arrival.

    For all other areas:

    The CDC and public health officials recommend that you wear face masks indoors and practice physical distancing. To that end, individuals are encouraged to wear masks when inside and around other people in an environment where six feet of distance cannot be maintained.

    Doing so is consistent with current CDC protocols and is a courteous way of demonstrating respect for the concerns of colleagues and friends who may not have the same comfort level with a mask-less environment.

    As state and federal guidance, conditions, and scientific recommendations continue to evolve, campus restrictions and recommendations are subject to change.

  • If I had COVID-19 and have antibodies, do I need to get vaccinated?

    Yes, those who have had COVID-19 should still get vaccinated, and do not have to wait 90 days as previously recommended.
