Booster shots

The recent emergence of the omicron variant further emphasizes the importance of vaccination, boosters and prevention efforts needed to protect against COVID-19.

All MU community members are strongly encouraged to complete their vaccination process, including booster shots, as soon as they are eligible.

Immunocompromised individuals:

If you are immunocompromised or have a weakened immune system, it is recommended that you continue to socially distance and wear a mask when in close contact with others you do not live with or interact with on a regular basis, even if fully vaccinated.

Face covering guidance

Practice good health hygiene

Hand hygiene

Proper hand washing remains one of our best defenses against the spread of clinical disease:

  • Wash hands (with soap and water for at least 20 seconds) frequently throughout the day.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, you can use an ethyl alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60%-95% alcohol.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Throw used tissues in the trash.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water immediately after coughing, sneezing, blowing your nose or using the restroom.

Symptom self-monitoring

All university community members should be aware of the symptoms of COVID-19 and self-monitor their health for signs of illness. Stay home if you feel unwell, are waiting for test results, have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19 or have tested positive.
