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

    Not at this time, but it is highly recommended.

    Effective August 5, 2021, all students, faculty, staff, and visitors are required to wear a face mask when inside all buildings on Wright State University campuses, regardless of vaccination status. Masks are not required when outdoors on Wright State campuses if you are able to maintain a safe physical distance. Masks should cover your nose, mouth, and chin.

    Individuals with a medical condition or disability that prevents them from safely wearing a face mask may seek a reasonable accommodation. Please email mask-ada@wright.edu for information on how to request a face covering exemption/alternative based on your disability.

    Masks also 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.
