Coronavirus Information

This site provides access to the most up-to-date information on Penn State's response to the coronavirus, as well as related campus-specific information. 


Effective Friday, May 27, 2022, Penn State Greater Allegheny faculty, staff, students and visitors are required to wear face masks inside all campus facilities.  This is in response to the CDC moving Allegheny County's risk level to Orange (high).  This applies vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals and will remain in effect until further notice. 

Proof of Vaccination

Penn State is not impartial when it comes to getting vaccinated.  The University's stance is that everyone who can get a vaccine should do so as soon as possible to attain high vaccination rates on all Penn State campuses.  

Penn State is strongly encouraging students, faculty and staff to get vaccinated, including boosters, against COVID-19 and to share their vaccination status with the University after they receive their final dose.

Employees and World Campus students can now provide their vaccination status to the University using SalesForce Health Cloud, a secure online platform for collecting health data. A step-by-step guide to help the University’s employees with submission is available as well via the COVID-19 Vaccination webpage on the Return to Work website.

Students can upload their vaccination records through myUHS.

The latest vaccination information for University community members is available on Penn State’s virus information website.
