    The University of Scranton announced plans to open its campus again to the general public at the start of the summer semester on May 24. The University is currently open to members of the University community and invited guests, which includes family members and friends attending Scranton’s various graduation ceremonies and other events on campus. Currently, higher-grade masks are optional for individuals indoors, regardless of vaccine status.

    The University also announced COVID vaccine requirements for students and employees for the fall semester. The University will require all students attending in-person classes or accessing campus for other reasons in the fall 2022 semester to provide proof of being fully vaccinated by August 1. All employees are required to provide an attestation that they are fully vaccinated. Students and employees can apply for medical or religious exemptions to the vaccine requirements.

    Regarding boosters, the University strongly recommends, but does not require, that students and employees stay “up to date” with COVID-19 vaccinations.

    The University has based its health and safety plan on recommendations by the CDC and other health organizations. The University continues to monitor the situation and will update its plan as needed.

    The full update for the summer and fall is available on the University’s Royals Back Together webpage
