    The University of Scranton will use a tile near the top of its Royals Back Together plan to indicate if masks are required indoors for full-vaccinated individuals and whether or not the campus is open to the general public.

    The Royals Back Together plan takes into account the latest health and safety recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Pennsylvania Department of Health (PA DOH). The University will adjust the plan regarding masking and other health requirements based on the virus spread within the local community.

    The University announced in a campus update on Aug. 23 that masks will be required indoors for fully-vaccinated individuals through to Sept. 13, when the University will update the campus to any changes. Masks will be required indoors for unvaccinated individuals throughout the semester.

    The University also announced that the campus is only open to invited guests, which include parents and family members of students who will be on campus this weekend helping their children move into residence halls.

    In addition to parents and family members, invited guests include those registered for admissions tours and guests; spectators at athletic events; invited speakers or guests for meetings and events; contractors and other campus service providers; and fully vaccinated guests in University residence halls, for which registration required. The campus is closed to the general public through to Sept. 13 and a Royal Card is needed to access buildings on campus.

    The full update available on the Royals Back Together webpage.
