UPDATED JUNE 8, 2021: The Lincoln University campus has been under a mask wearing protocol since the campus reopened in May 2020. As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic, we are cautiously optimistic due to the availability of vaccines and the number of new cases. With that in mind, as well as following the guidance of the CDC, the University will not require mask wearing on campus beginning Monday, June 14, 2021. Masks are still recommended for anyone who is not fully vaccinated or with a comprised immune system, but are not required. Classrooms and meeting spaces will still allow for social distancing throughout the summer. Good handwashing/hand sanitizing is still encouraged to prevent the spread of COVID and other viruses. In any instance where you are not feeling well, please stay home to protect yourself and others.
Please be mindful that an uptick in COVID-19 case data on a local, state or regional level could mean a change in protocol.
SOCIAL DISTANCING of six-feet or more (where possible) will be promoted in all campus facilties.
PROPER HANDWASHING helps stop the spread of germs.
The COVID-19 Pandemic that hit our nation in Spring 2020 has greatly affected every aspect of our daily lives. Our first priority is promoting the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff. The University draws upon the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in its decision-making process. For more information from the CDC, please visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html.
Faculty, staff, employees, students, and campus visitors voluntarily assume full responsibility for any and all risks of illness or injury associated with exposure to COVID-19, as well as from use of any protective equipment, including face masks, that the University may voluntarily provide.
As defined by the CDC, isolation and quarantine help protect the public by preventing exposure to people who have or may have a contagious disease.
- Isolation separates sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick.
- Quarantine separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick.
