Updates to Renewal Site
In accordance with national guidelines, MU Health Care will now offer COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine appointments to all Missourians age 12 and older. Appointments for the next vaccination event at Faurot Field are available now.
In accordance with new guidance from both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and our local Boone County public health officials, MU has updated its outdoor face covering requirements:
Wearing face coverings outside is no longer required on campus, although it is still encouraged that you use a face covering if you are within 6 feet of someone you do not live with, particularly if you are not vaccinated and if you are with that individual for 15 minutes or longer.
It is also still recommended that individuals avoid large outside crowds where social distancing is not possible.
Face coverings and social distancing are still required while indoors on campus.
Whenever a face covering is required, it must always be kept over your mouth and nose.
Updated face covering information, exceptions and situation-specific guidance can be found on the face coverings page.
MU continues to work closely with infection control experts at MU Health Care and local and state public health officials, and follows guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Additionally, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) has activated a statewide public hotline, 877-435-8411, for citizens or providers needing guidance regarding COVID-19.
