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.
Proof of Vaccination
June 1, 2021 — Penn State is strongly encouraging students, faculty and staff to get vaccinated 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.
After providing proof of vaccination, students and employees who wish to participate in the University’s vaccine incentive program must also complete an online form to become eligible for the weekly drawings. Students who have previously submitted their proof of vaccination and wish to opt into the incentive program also must complete this form.
The latest vaccination information for University community members is available on Penn State’s virus information website.
Masking and Social Distancing
May 31, 2021 — Penn State has announced plans to transition its masking and physical distancing requirements on June 28 to more closely align with changes recently announced by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Pennsylvania Department of Health that relax COVID-19 restrictions for fully vaccinated individuals. The changes will apply to all Penn State campuses except the College of Medicine. Students, faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated — and share their vaccination status with the University — as soon as possible.
After June 28, fully vaccinated individuals at Penn State will no longer be required to wear face masks indoors, and the physical distancing and outdoor masking requirements will be lifted for all individuals. The use of face masks will still be required in some settings, such as when visiting on-campus health care facilities and when conducting in-person research involving human subjects.
Penn State will continue to require non-vaccinated individuals to wear masks inside University buildings at all times after June 28.
