As we prepare to welcome our community back to campus next month, we wanted to reach out to share with you our plans for the fall semester at Washington University.
The university is reinstating its indoor mask requirement, effective immediately, in accordance with the city and county mandates that went into effect today. Masks are again required at indoor gatherings for everyone, regardless of vaccination status or the size of a meeting or gathering.
Due to promising initial estimates of vaccination rates among Danforth Campus faculty, staff and students, we are now able to lift the physical distancing requirement for fully vaccinated individuals in most spaces on the Danforth Campus.
With the aim of protecting our community and the patients we serve, and returning to full in-person teaching, learning, research and campus life in the fall, we will require all Washington University faculty, staff and trainees to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
