Campus Update on COVID-19
Based on recent guidance by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Vigo County Health Department, Indiana State University has now made the use of masks optional.
- Policy and protocol changes start April 29, 2022 removing the following:
- Contact tracing by the university.
- COVID testing requirements for those who have not submitted proof of vaccination.
- The COVID dashboard that reports the number of people isolation and quarantine.
- COVID sick bank contributions where employees could donate unused sick times to colleagues.
- Starting March 5 masks will now be optional on campus.
- In September, President Curtis announced the launch of the University’s Sycamore Community Health Initiative, an expansion of the fall experiential learning guidelines. Starting January 1, 2022, students, faculty, and staff must upload evidence of their vaccination card, or participate in a weekly COVID-19 test throughout the spring 2022 semester.
- Employees and students who have been vaccinated should upload proof of vaccination using the upload link in your MyISU portal.
While Indiana State does not have a vaccination mandate, the University encourages employees and students to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Evidence shows that those who are vaccinated are highly protected against severe illness and hospitalization.
Indiana State University offers free COVID-19 Pfizer vaccinations from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday in the ISU Student Health Center in the Student Services Building. Information on other vaccine-provider locations in Vigo County can be found at ourshot.in.gov.
