We have received a number of questions related to the announcement made May 13 by the Centers for Disease Control, Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People, which speaks to new guidance about fully COVID-19 vaccinated individuals and face coverings.

Until we receive different guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the State System of Higher Education, IUP will continue to follow the health and safety requirements introduced in the fall 2020 semester for persons on IUP campuses, including face coverings and social distancing. Please continue to plan your classes, events, and work schedules according to our current guidelines.

The situation is under active review, and we will share any new information or recommendations with you as soon as they are received.

Thank you for continuing to follow the coronavirus mitigation requirements in place for IUP.
