Campus updates

Latest from Mizzou

MU Incident Command shares updated campus policies and safety recommendations based on vaccination status and situation.

University leaders share continuing guidance for the resumption of in-person work for MU and UM System employees .

The Incident Command Team provides an update on outdoor restrictions based on new guidance from both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and our local Boone County public health officials.

The President and the Provost share plans for returning to in-person work on campus.

The university has updated its event policies in accordance with Boone County health orders.

Updates to Renewal Site

All Missourians aged 12 and older and all University of Missouri students are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. MU Health Care now offers the vaccine at four locations in Columbia and Fulton. Vaccination is available by appointment only.

Vaccine information

Beginning June 1, the university will change its policy on social distancing and the wearing of face coverings indoors from required for all to recommended based on vaccination status and situation.

Per CDC guidance, fully vaccinated individuals no longer need to wear a mask or socially distance unless they have a weakened immune system. The CDC does continue to recommend these practices for individuals not yet fully vaccinated.

For scheduled classes during summer session, classroom capacity and seating arrangements are already set to accomplish 6-foot distancing and will remain in that configuration.  If you are not fully vaccinated or have a compromised immune system, it is recommended that you continue to wear a mask while in class.

Safety recommendations

As of June 1, 2021, the university no longer requires fully vaccinated individuals to wear face coverings or socially distance. It has also lifted event size restrictions and is no longer requiring Incident Command approval for events.

Events occurring after June 1, 2021, that have already been approved can be adjusted according to current guidelines. Any such revisions to events should be reviewed by unit leaders, and venue space managers should be consulted if changes are desired for already scheduled events to ensure the venue can accommodate the proposed changes.
