COVID-19 Masking and/or Face Covering Policy Update

Dear Campus Community,

On November 10, our Coronavirus Task Force lifted the mask mandate for our campus. We clarified that if any of the conditions below were met, we would reinstitute the mandate:

  • The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) alert status for Vanderburgh County rises to a status of orange or red
  • We have more than 20 active cases of COVID-19 on campus
  • The campus vaccination rate falls below 80%

Today, the ISDH changed Vanderburgh County’s advisory status to orange on its statewide COVID-19 map. Therefore, UE will be reinstituting the mask and/or face covering mandate effective immediately. This will remain in place until the three metrics are below the targets for two consecutive weeks. We will continue to monitor the pandemic and trends at the local, state, and national levels.

We appreciate your patience as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. As always, we will communicate all updates to our campus community.

Thank you,

Coronavirus Task Force
