This guidance applies to anyone using UVM facilities and event spaces. This includes UVM employees, students, vendors, contractors, volunteers, clients, customers, and anyone visiting UVM buildings for conferences, meetings, and events. This guidance also applies to UVM owned or leased buildings and spaces, including off-campus sites and retail locations. This guidance also applies to University activities in non-UVM spaces, although consideration must be given to the requirements of the host site; the more stringent requirements will apply.
UVM Face Coverings
Effective Saturday, March 19, 2022, masks are optional in all* locations at UVM, indoor and outdoor!
We recognize there are members of our community who, for a number of reasons, will feel more comfortable wearing a mask in different situations. Please respect their decision. The UVM community has demonstrated an exceptional level of care, compassion, and respect throughout the pandemic. We know that will continue.
All members of the community should keep masks accessible, as there are times and places in which it will be necessary to mask*.
- Masks are required at Student Health Services including at the symptomatic testing location at Jeanne Mance, and at the Eleanor M. Luse Center.
- You must wear a mask when riding on any UVM bus or other public transportation.
- Clinical and internship sites, including UVMMC, may have specific mask requirements which supersede UVM’s mask policy.
- There may be additional, limited situations when mask use is required to comply with a legal requirement.
Please carry a mask with you and pay attention to posted signage about masking around campus.
All users of UVM buildings must continue to monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID-19. They cannot come to campus nor participate in UVM in-person activities if they are experiencing symptoms, have tested positive for COVID-19, or been identified as a close contact until they have met the VDH isolation, quarantine, and/or testing requirements.
